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
  • Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his last seven starts for Aston Villa.
Expert verdict
Aston Villa have lost just two of their last 15 matches and valid excuses can be made for both defeats. Dean Smith made wholesale changes with the playoffs in mind for their 2-1 loss to champions Norwich on the final day, while they lost the second leg of semi-final at West Brom despite having 73 per cent possession and winning the shot count 24 to ten. They are full of confidence and should be more determined than ever after last season’s playoff final heartbreak.
