Manchester United Name UCL Knockout Round Roster Ahead of PSG Clash



Tuesday brought the deadline for the 16 European teams still alive in the UEFA Champions League competition to name their rosters for the knockout round. Here below you will find the full official Manchester United roster, which includes the young players on List B.

In case you’re wondering why Marcus Rashford is on the B List, which seems very odd at first given his elite form lately it’s because List B applies to those born on or after January 1, 1997 who have been eligible to play for the club for any uninterrupted period of two years after their 15th birthday. United renew their European campaign a week from tonight when they welcome the French Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-Germain to Old Trafford.


United received a stroke of good luck for this round as PSG superstar Neymar will miss the entire round of 16 tie due to a broken metatarsal. United are very slightly favored to win this match according to Odds Checker, but in the overall tournament they have much less favorable odds than Les Parisiens.

According to Betway, Manchester City are the current favorites to win the entire UCL, priced at 100/30. They are followed by Barcelona at 9/2, with Juventus and PSG tied for the third most favorable backing at 15/2.

United are way down on the list in 11th place of 16, given odds of 33/1 to be the ultimate victors in Europe.
