Man United make history!

Manchester United defeated Paris St Germain 3-1 (Agg: 3-3) at the Le Parc des Princes to progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League and in doing so created history.

Two goals from Romelu Lukaku (2′ & 30′) and a 94th-minute penalty from Marcus Rashford helped give Ole Gunnar Solsjaer’s depleted side an impressive 3-1 victory in Paris, which leveled the tie at 3-3 on aggregate but sent the Red Devils through on away goals.

Aside from sealing their spot in the quarter-finals, the victory also made United the first team in Champions League history to progress having lost by two or more goals at home in the first leg of a knockout match.

During the post-match press conference, Solsjaer said, “We can go all the way but we just have to wait for the draw and then take the game as it comes. We’ve had loads of injuries, suspensions but that was maybe a good thing today, we had a fresh team, loads of energy. We were humble enough to work hard and we had a team to do that.”
