Rashford strikes late as United sink PSG again

Champions League Group H Paris St Germain V Manchester United
Manchester United's Marcus Rashford celebrates scoring their second goal

Manchester United got their Champions League campaign underway in emphatic style when Marcus Rashford’s late goal earned them a 2-1 victory at Paris St Germain in Group H on Tuesday.

Rashford netted three minutes from time, 18 months after scoring the decisive goal in a 3-1 win at PSG that sent United into the quarter-finals after a 2-0 first-leg home defeat.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United side went ahead with a twice-taken Bruno Fernandes first-half penalty before Anthony Martial’s own goal after the break gifted PSG the equaliser, only for Rashford to wrap up the win with a precise low shot.

It was PSG’s first Champions League group stage defeat at the Parc des Princes in 16 years, the first in 25 games.
