Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Marcus Rashford’s last-gasp penalty secured a 3-1 win away to Paris Saint-Germain to send Manchester United through to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Following a 2-0 loss at Old Trafford, there was much talk surrounding the ability Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side to pull a magical comeback at the Parc des Princes, but Manchester United made Champions League history last night.

The Red Devils became the first side to progress in a knockout match in Europe’s elite competition after losing a home first leg by two or more goals.

 

PSG had 76% possession but mistakes from Thilo Kehrer and Gianluigi Buffon gifted the in-form Lukaku two goals either side of Juan Bernat’s equaliser.

VAR drama played out in the dying minutes of the game as Presnel Kimpembe was penalised for handball and Rashford made no mistake in getting the ball past Buffon the Ligue 1 team eliminated at the last-16 stage for a third year in succession
