Manchester United ease past PSG to reach champions league quarter-final



Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar SolskJaer believe his side can go all the way in the Champions League after Marcus Rashford's dramatic stoppage-time penalty gave them a stunning 3-1 win away to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday as they reached the quarter-finals on away goals. 


A seriously depleted United looked to have given themselves too much to do after losing 2-0 in the first leg of their last-16 tie last month, yet a Romelu Lukaku brace in the first half at the Parc des Princes gave them hope.

Even so, Juan Bernat had netted in between for PSG, and it looked as though the French side would stumble on until the drama at the death.

Slovenian referee Damir Skomina awarded a spot-kick after reviewing the images when he had been alerted of a possible handball by PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe in the box.

Rashford duly beat Gianluigi Buffon from 12 yards, as United won a European tie after losing the first leg at home for the first time in their history.


"We always believed, that's the thing," Solskjaer said. "The plan was to get the first goal, be in the game with five or 10 minutes to go, and we were."
