PSG held a 2-0 advantage after their victory at Old Trafford three weeks ago, but as an incredible second leg unfolded, a Romelu Lukaku double put an injury-ravished United side 2-1 ahead on the night before Marcus Rashford fired home a dramatic last-minute penalty, awarded with the aid of VAR, to send the Reds through to the quarter-finals on away goals.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said before the game this wasn’t mission impossible and the Reds certainly had a right good go at the task. Within two minutes of the kick-off the deficit had already been halved.
And that is exactly what happened.
Meanwhile Roma were eliminated from the Champions League after losing 3-1 on aggregate against Porto.
The Portuguese side were given a penealty during extra-time – 3 minutes before the penealty shoot-out.
