Michael Owen’s Champions League predictions including Liverpool and Man Utd

Michael Owen expects Paris Saint Germain to be too hot to handle for Manchester United.

The Red Devils return to action in Europe's elite club competition on Tuesday night when they travel to Paris.

However, they face a stern test against last season's runners-up and Owen predicts a 2-1 defeat for his former club.

The BetVictor Brand Ambassador said: "Manchester United flattered to deceive with their 4-1 win at Newcastle on Saturday night. However, they face a much tougher test in Paris.

"With the likes of Neymar and Mbappe, I think they may have too much for United.

"I reckon last years finalists will come out on top with both sides scoring."

Chelsea are also in action as they entertain Europa League winners Sevilla at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues come into this one having surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Southampton at the weekend but Owen expects them to run out 2-1 winners against their Spanish opponents.

"I’m expecting goals to be on the menu again here," he said.

"Sevilla lost out to Granada at the weekend, so it’s fair to say both need a result.

"Timo Werner finally found the net on Saturday, and if he’s in the mood again, I could see Chelsea edging it."

Liverpool head to Amsterdam without Virgil van Dijk but the former Kop forward predicts they will win by the same scoreline against Ajax.

He said: "This should be a cracker. Liverpool were unlucky not to snatch the points on Saturday, and although I think it will be close, I can see the Reds having too much firepower for the home side."

Meanwhile, Owen expects Man City to take Porto to the cleaners, adding: "The Citizens have high hopes of winning their elusive first Champions League trophy and will be aiming for no less than maximum points here.

"Porto may have improved over the close season, but I can’t see anything other than a win for City."
