It was a déjà vu for Manchester United and striker Marcus Rashford as they capped a memorable Champions League win in Paris with yet another late goal.
Rashford, who sealed United’s epic 3-1 win at a previous game against Paris Saint-German (PSG) with a late penalty, secured another memorable triumph by scoring in the 87th minute.
After a season outside European football’s top table, the Red Devils returned to the Parc des Princes to make one of their biggest comebacks.
The England striker handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side victory, kicking off their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 with a total five for United’s win over PSG.
Given the situations, many predicted a home win — David De Gea making two crucial early stops before Anthony Martial was brought down in the penalty area midway in the first-half by Abdou Diallo.
Martial rose highest in the penalty area to head Neymar’s corner but, at the decisive moment, closed his eyes and peered into his own net.
A win over last season’s beaten finalists, because of Rashford’s cool head and clinical finish, put United in perfect rhythm for a place in the Champions League.
For PSG, last season’s Champions League final against Bayern Munich would serve as a catalyst for a more determined player, or deflate a team who have endured many heartaches throughout the competition.
