Manchester United stun PSG in comeback victory

Manchester United recorded a stunning comeback to beat Paris St-Germain and qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side slashed to 10-1 from 125-1 to lift the trophy.

Marcus Rashford's injury-time penalty sealed a sensational success as United overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit by winning 3-1 in Paris to defy pre-match qualification odds of 18-1.

Rashford's penalty - awarded after a VAR review following a handball from Presnel Kimpembe - saw Solskjaer's Midas touch continue in the dugout.

Romelu Lukaku's early goal gave United the perfect start and the Belgian bagged a second, capitalising on a Gigi Buffon error, after Juan Bernat had briefly put PSG level.

It was left to Rashford to become United's hero and put the Red Devils in the quarter-final draw on Friday March 15.

Key stats
  • Liverpool have lost six of their last eight Champions League away games
Expert verdict
Liverpool begin their Champions League title defence with a return to the scene of one of the four away defeats they suffered on their way to winning last season’s competition. The Reds were beaten 1-0 at the Stadio San Paolo in the group stage last October and, as the Partenopei have lost three times in their last 19 home fixtures in the competition, their run of six defeats in eight UCL away games is a concern. However, they rarely fail to deliver in the final third, netting in all but four of their last 42 competitive matches.
