The match saw a dramatic end as Manchester United secured a place in the quarterfinal with a 3-1 win.
It was a dramatic end to the game between Manchester United and PSG as the visitors secured a 3-1 win at Parc des Princes.
Marcus Rashford scored an injury-time winner in the game as VAR awarded a penalty to Manchester United for a handball offence.
Romelu Lukaku gave the side the lead in the game as he scored within two minutes to the start of the game. Even when PSG was the far more dominant side in the game, Manchester United held on to their lead in the second half.
Diogo Dalot took a shot in the injury time which was deflected off through a handball. After the Portuguese defender appealed for the offence, the referee checked it with VAR and awarded the penalty to Manchester United.
Gianluigi Buffon guessed it rightly but couldn’t save Marcus Rashford’s powerful hit as United secured a memorable comeback against PSG after losing the first leg 2-0.
The win was also memorable because Manchester United lacked a single first-team player in the midfield, and finished with three teenagers in the game.
Here’s the full video of the drama that unfolded at Parc des Princes:

This was a huge night for United, a huge night for Solskjaer and a huge moment for Rashford to score that pressure penalty at the death. But it was also a night when Lukaku will have revised plenty of opinions about him. It’s been some week for the Belgian https://t.co/cgePeooHRi
