This Malaysian Predicted Exactly How Manchester United Would Win PSG Even Before Kick-off
Timmy Chin, a Malaysian Manchester United fan, has been making waves on Twitter for his accurate prediction of the team's Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on 7 March

The game eventually unfolded the way Timmy predicted it
United striker Romelu Lukaku scored two goals in the first half while PSG managed to grab one.
Marcus Rashford finally secured the win in the 94th minute, two minutes later than Timmy's prediction.
Timmy's prediction left the squad in shock, including United full-back Diogo Dalot
His hunch also had Ashley Young promise to send him a signed shirt.
He also had the chance to speak on BBC Live Radio following his viral tweet, and was asked to make predictions for more games
BBC reported him as saying that he never made such specific prediction before that tweet.
"I usually put out predictions but I never go in so specifically, but this time I don't know why," he said.
"Everything for the past few days has been absolute crazy," he told SAYS.
"(I did) a live radio interview with BBC last night, and I just finished a shoot with Astro for a chat session with (Real Madrid legend) Fernando Morientes," he added.
"It's been amazing, I'll never forget this moment ever," Timmy said.
The 26-year-old told SAYS that he has been a Manchester United fan for as long as he could remember
"In 1999 my uncle bought me a poster of Manchester United winning the Champions League, and since then I've always been a huge fan," Timmy said.
"I love Manchester United because watching them play and win, I've never experienced any feeling like it – the adrenaline, sadness, and joy all mashed up together while watching them throughout the years," he added.
