This is the full live score of the Champion league between PSG vs Manchester United, The scoreline ended in 3-1 in favour of Manchester United to go through to the quarter-final of the 2019 tournament.
They say the video assistant referee is killing the drama in football. Not here. No way. This was the most incredible, astonishing unforgettable finish as Manchester United were awarded a controversial 90thminute penalty to knock Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League. Marcus Rashford took it, driving the ball high into the net and the United bench exploded – it felt just like 1999. It really did. PSG were stunned. The world was stunned.
There were then four minutes of added time. It felt like an eternity with PSG reacting with fury after the award which seemed harsh. Sure Presnel Kimpembe blocked Diogo Dalot’s shot which hit his elbow but the defender had turned his back. Even so after consulting with the VAR on the side of the pitch referee Damir Skomina gave the penalty.
No fewer than 106 times has a team unsuccessfully previously tried to overcome a 2-0 deficit from the first leg of a Champions League tie. There will not be a 107th. That United, severely depleted, without 10 players, did this is quite extraordinary and a glowing testimony to the spirit that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought to them.
This was about courage and heart and believing that, as Solskjaer said, there is never a mission impossible. This was simply heroic. It was about resolve and determination. And sheer, bloody-minded guts.
It has been already been said – not least by himself – that Solskjaer is bringing something of the old United back and this was further compelling evidence delivered by him. The players sprinted to the 2,000 United fans at the final whistle as every PSG player slumped on the turf.
