PSG run out 2:0 winners and are in control of this tie going into the second leg in Paris. A cagey first-half ended 0:0 but then exploded into life in the second as PSG upped a gear and struck the opening goal after 53 minutes. We looked shell shocked after that and conceded a second 7 minutes later through Mbappe. PSG were rampant at that point and could easily have got another goal to really kill the tie but De Gea pulled off a couple of top saves.

As the half went on we worked our way back into the game as PSG were content to sit on their lead. We couldn't produce the necessary quality to find a goal and a way back into the tie. The loss of Lingard and Martial in the first-half really seemed to take the steam out of us. A second yellow and red card for Paul Pogba at the end really added salt to the wound.

It's a big ask in the second leg to turn this around and a disappointing night as Ole suffers his first defeat. More big games on the horizon though with Chelsea in the FA Cup on Monday, so we need to lift ourselves for that!

Red Card

Paul Pogba
Pogba off for a second yellow after a rash challenge on Dani Alves.

Looks like VAR may have had something to do with that as the referee looked like he wasn't going to do anything about the tackle. That's Pog out of the second leg and our fast diminishing chances of getting through this tie are getting slimmer.

Substitution for Manchester United

Off: Marcus Rashford

Not long for Romelu to make an impact but we need something here to have any hope for the next leg.

Herrera goes for the top corner from the edge of the box but it's wide. PSG defending in numbers and we're really struggling to break them down.
