Yet again the football greatest Competition provides another moment of magic as United won the draw vs Paris Saint Germain in the last minutes of the game.
The Red Devils where clearly the underdog as they weren’t able to keep a clean sheet at home not to mention that their performance against the French champs was poor.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was disappointed after the first leg but he sent a message to all the Red Army. – “Mountains are there to be climbed”
Manchester United WAJIB bagi Solskjaer permanent manager.17 games played, won 14. Bullied Chelsea, Arsenal & Spurs at their home ground. Comeback against the current Ligue 1 Champion without 10 of his senior players. Unlike his predecessors, Solskjaer EARNED this job 🔴⚫⚪ pic.twitter.com/fuzNR3C0xa— Admin Wazza (@twtmanutd) 6 March 2019
The game could have not started better for United as they were able to score right in the 2nd minute of the game. The high pressure by the visitors was key to force PSG’s defense error, but Big Rom played his part as he was there to steal the ball, drible Buffon and define with almost no angle.
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— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) 6 March 2019
PSG tied the game a couple of minutes later and all seemed lost again as the Home side held the advantage and was also able to generate some decent chances, but Rashford and Lukaku appeared again to put the game 1 – 2. PSG did generate some decent chances after that and even had a disallowed goal to Di Maria, but the game was 1 – 2 till the very end where a really controversial VAR decision was taken.
All together, an historical night for Man united and another nightmare for PSG as they go out of the competition again after having pretty nice advantage. Of course internet reaction has been massive, here we picked some of the best tweets of the night.
