Manchester United 1-3 PSG highlights and reaction

1 min read

Manchester United face a tense evening in Germany next week after failing to secure their passage to the last 16 of the Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain.

United went into the game at Old Trafford knowing a draw would be enough to seal their passage to the next phase of the competition with a game to spare, but goals from Neymar and Marquinhos secured a much-needed win for the away side.

United made three changes from the team that beat Southampton at the weekend, with Scott McTominay, Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani coming in for Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek and Mason Greenwood.

Neymar opened the scoring in the first half as the visitors dominated the opening stages, but United came back into the game and deservedly equalised when Marcus Rashford’s strike deflected past the wrong-footed Keylor Navas.

Martial missed a gilt-edged chance after the break before the crossbar denied Cavani a stunner, and United’s failure to capitalise on their dominance was punished when Marquinhos bundled home after a corner.

Fred was shown a second yellow card a short time later and United couldn’t find a leveller before Neymar made it 3-1 late on.
