7th March 2019 - Manchester United are through to the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time since 2014 after a remarkable night in Paris.

A stoppage-time penalty from Marcus Rashford, awarded by VAR, sealed a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s injury-hit side made history at Parc des Princes.

In 34 attempts, no club had ever gone through after losing the first leg at home by two or more goals. That was until a double from Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku’s first coming inside the opening two minutes, Juan Benat equalized and Lukaku restored Utd’s lead and Rashford’s ice-cool penalty at the death ensured United, who were without 10 first-team players due to injury and suspension, will be in the draw for the next round.

Considering the result in the first leg and the number of players either injured or suspended, it was a truly remarkable performance. United inflicted only PSG’s second defeat in the last 16 Champions League games at home.

To win the game would have been impressive enough, but to do it by a big enough margin to win the tie was almost unbelievable.
