Manchester United stunned Paris Saint-Germain in their own ground again. After the historic comeback in UEFA Champions League, two years ago, Manchester United made a new history in Parc Des France again.
Manchester United has won 10 consecutive away games across all competition for the first time in their history. They beat Paris Saint Germain by 2-1.
Manchester United came to Paris without their captain and main defender Harry Maguire. Eric Baily, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood were also out of this fixture yesterday.
Bruno Fernandes led the team in the absence of Maguire. He scored from the spot to give the lead to the Red Devils in the first half. PSG came back in the game in the second half after an own goal of Anthony Martial from a corner. But again, the late winner from Rashford sealed the victory for the English side.
Depending on the recent form it was quite obvious that Paris Saint Germain were the favourites to win the tie. United lost a game against Tottenham by 6-1 recently and the absence of Maguire made everyone that it will be a comfortable win for PSG with Neymar, Mbappe, and Di Maria.
But the excellent performance of Manchester United’s young squad with Axel Tuanzebe, Aaron Wan Bissaka, Scott Mctominay stop the front trio to PSG to score against them. United goalkeeper David De Gea made some excellent saves to seal the victory. He also became the Man of the Match as well.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was so happy with his team’s performance. He was delighted to see the commitments from his players. United players have given their everything on the pitch yesterday. Scott McTominay even played with just ‘one eye’ in the first half. He said, “McTominay played the first-half with ‘one eye’ as he lost one of his contact lenses.”
United will play against Chelsea in Premier League on the weekend before their Champions League clash against RB Leipzig. United will surely try to continue their form.
