Despite the hope of reclaiming their place in Europe’s elite, Manchester United lost their first match under the watch of the interim coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer in front of their fans to a better side; Paris Saint German in the first leg of knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League.
A match that became so intensive with lot of bookings in the second half needed former United’s star, Angel Dimaria’s exceptional performance to decide the pace as he gave the assist to both scorers from PSG Presnel Kimpembe and brilliant Kylian Mbappe.
The team now has mountains to climb as Manchester United’s prolific midfielder Paul Pogba will definitely miss the second leg in France after he was sent off through double yellow cards in the same match. which makes the hope of overturning the result in the return leg less achievable.
A seemingly depleted PSG without Neymar jr and Edison Cavani will now welcome the Ole Gunnar’s side possibly without Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial in the second leg with the hope of a miraculous overturn.
Meanwhile AS Roma edged FC Porto in a close contest that ended two goals to one.
