Marcus Rashford delivered again for Manchester United against Paris Saint-Germain as his late strike sealed a 2-1 win in the Champions League group stages.
After scoring the decisive injury-time penalty in their Champions League quarter-final comeback win two seasons ago, Rashford scored with four minutes remaining on Tuesday to reward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men with a richly deserved three points.
Bruno Fernandes had given the visitors the lead (23) from the penalty spot with a retaken effort after Keylor Navas had encroached whilst saving the original effort. An unfortunate Anthony Martial own goal (55) drew an off-colour PSG level but United were the better side in Paris.
They executed their tactics brilliantly to quell the threat of last year’s Champions League runners-up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe expertly marshalled by Axel Tuanzebe, who was making his first start since 2019.
The defeat was PSG’s first home defeat in the Champions League group stages since 2004.
