Champions League: PSG win to end Manchester United's unbeaten run under Solskjaer

When Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United were drawn together in the Champions League round of 16 back in mid-December, the Parisians were the overwhelming favorites.

Angel Di Maria was the architect of both goals on his return to Old Trafford as PSG more than coped without injured duo Neymar and Cavani.

To make matters worse for Solskjaer, the interim United manager, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard hobbled off with injuries.

Manchester United boss Solskjaer saw his side lose for the first time since replacing Jose Mourinho against a brilliant PSG at Old Trafford.

PSG, missing injured twin strikers Neymar and Edinson Cavani, were now dominant and the United goalkeeper denied the unsafe Mbappe a third to prevent United falling further behind.

"Today was a kind of a reality check on the level of the top teams".

The home side never recovered their composure as PSG produced a stunning second-half display to all but book their place in the last eight despite David de Gea's best efforts.

Many people carried pictures of Khomeini, who died in 1989, and Iran's current Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. He said, "The United States does not have the courage to shoot a single bullet at us".

The second goal, on the hour, was the culmination of an electric counterattack.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", Solskjaer said.

"No, not at all because at this club we have to bounce back and we are in a tournament, the Champions League, where it's always going to be hard, but our bread and butter is the (domestic) league so (I'm) not afraid of that".

It's going to take another miracle for them to reach the quarter-finals first, though.

In his 12th game in charge of the Red Devils, Solskjaer watched on helplessly as his players were outclassed by the French champions in their own back yard. This was a level up from what we've played against.

Two goals from 19-year-old Nicolo Zaniolo earned AS Roma a 2-1 win against Porto in Wednesday's other match. It was one of those experiences that can go either way, but it's not going to be a season-defining one for us. We have to learn from this. United has only scored one goal at home in four Champions League games this season, a 1-0 victory over Young Boys.

The United caretaker manager claimed PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe was "very lucky" not to be sent off for a second bookable offence after a foul on Luke Shaw before giving the French champions the lead. A repeat of that 3-0 win in Paris next month would take United through to the quarterfinals.
