Man Utd makes UCL history with PSG win

Manchester United makes Champions League history with PSG win

March 6, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red Devils progressed to the quarter-finals of the European competition in dramatic fashion.

Manchester United has successfully made it into the Champions League's history books after a dramatic finale at Parc des Princes saw the Red Devils eliminate Paris Saint-German from the competition. A late penalty kick by Marcus Rashford complemented a first half brace by Romelu Lukaku to ensure that Juan Bernat's strike was a mere consolation for the host.

Prior to the kick-off of tonight's encounter, there had been 34 teams to lose the first leg of a Champions League knockout match at home by two or more goals with none of them managing qualification to the next round.

However, Manchester United – who suffered a 2-0 defeat in the first leg at Old Trafford – ended the streak by winning on away goals in France with the match ending 3-3 on aggregate. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side became the first team in the history of the Champions League to progress to the next round of the European competition after trailing by two goals in the first leg.

Still on the subject of milestones, Romelu Lukaku's opening goal meant that the Red Devils have now scored in 21 consecutive away matches in all competitions, equaling the club record set under Sir Matt Busby in the 1956/1957 season.

Relatively, Paris Saint-Germain also attained an unwanted landmark as a result of Romelu Lukaku's first half brace. Prior to the Belgian striker's feat, the French club had not conceded two goals in the first 30 minutes in a UEFA Champions League fixture since doing so against Bayern Munich 22 years ago.

The latter stage of Wednesday night's epic clash also saw Solskjaer introducing two academy graduates - Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood - into the fray as Manchester United dug deep for a goal. The latter achieved a personal milestone by becoming the youngest player ever to make a Champions League appearance for the Red Devils at the age of 17 years and 156 days. 

The record was previously held by former defender Gerard Pique who debuted at the age of 17 years and 310 days.
