Man U Reigns Over PSG

Marcus Rashford scored a nerveless injury-time penalty as Manchester United staged an incredible comeback to beat Paris St-Germain on away goals and reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Rashford thumped home the VAR-awarded spot-kick in the 94th minute after Diogo Dalot’s speculative shot struck Presnel Kimpembe on the arm.

The odds were stacked against United in Paris, but they became the first team in Champions League and European Cup history, at the 107th time of asking, to overcome a 2-0 or greater home first-leg deficit.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s visitors got the perfect start thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s opportunist strike after two minutes, the Belgium striker latching on to Thilo Kehrer’s blind backpass and finding the net.

PSG went 3-1 ahead on aggregate when Kylian Mbappe fed a pass to the unmarked Juan Bernat, who slotted home at the back post.

The hosts then had a succession of chances, with makeshift right-back Eric Bailly enduring a torrid time in his 35 minutes on the pitch, before injury saw him replaced by Dalot.

Unable to capitalise, PSG were punished when veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon spilled Rashford’s long-range shot and Lukaku converted United’s second.

The game appeared to be petering out to its conclusion before Dalot fired the ball against the arm of the unfortunate Kimpembe, and after a long delay while the referee consulted his pitch-side monitor, Rashford’s ice-cool penalty sealed a remarkable win.

The draw for the quarter-finals takes place on Friday, 15 March.

      Barcelona lost away from home to PSG 4 goal to nil and won at home by 6 goals to 1 while man u lost at home by 2 goals
      to nil and win away 3 goals to 1. so what this means that there is no team that lost 2 goals to nil at home progress in last 16 when they were 2 nil down and beat other team at there stadium

      Kaya PSG scored 2goals at Old Trafford in the first game without consending.In the second game they allowed 3goals.So according to FIFA rules PSG are out bcoz of allowing those 3goals whilst Man Utd only allowed 2goals at home
