March 6, 2019: Painful Punishment

In the long list of PSG disappointments in the Champions League, the defeat to Manchester United in the round of 16 of the 2018-2019 edition was well placed. Strong winners (2-0) at Old Trafford in the first leg, thanks to goals from Presnel Kimpembe (53) and Kylian Mbappe (60), the Parisians appear to be on their way to not feeling another disappointment. Above all, the Mancunians were destroyed and forced to align the youths from the training center to the bench.

From the first moments, the doubts return: Thilo Kerr secures a bad pass, which is harmless, Romelu Lukaku intercepted and went on to defeat Buffon (0-1, 2). Juan Bernat drew quickly (1-1, 12), PSG regained control of the match…but cracked due to a new foul. In a long shot from Marcus Rashford, Gianluigi Buffon gets a hole and takes the shot. While watching, Romelu Lukaku pushes the ball into the opponent’s net (1-2, 30).

Fear triumphs over the capital club camp, but the latter controls the match and creates many great opportunities. without converting them. On a poorly defended response in overtime, Presnel Kimpembe commits a handball into the penalty area. The VAR confirms the penalty kick and Marcus Rashford, 21, grabs the ball. Young Manconian shoots hard into the Italian goalkeeper’s right-hand corner (1-3, 90 +4) and goes on to celebrate with his supporters by qualifying for the quarter-finals. The Parisians, haggard, can’t believe it.

October 20, 2020: Back to the crime scene

Two months before reaching the Champions League final against Bayern Munich (0-1), Paris Saint-Germain begins a new campaign to finally win the cup with big ears. Just over a year after an unexpected elimination against Manchester United, the Red Devils are back at Parc des Princes at the start of their new European campaign. This time around, the discussions were more balanced in the game, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men voluntarily leaving the ball two years ago.

In the absence of the clash, the Parisians logically conceded a penalty kick around by Bruno Fernandez (0-1, 23). After the lucky tie on their own net from Anthony Martial (1-1, 55), Paris struggled to keep the tie. But, once again, Marcus Rashford dressed up as a superhero to bestow victory on his people.

Facing Danilo Pereira, very passive, he made the England international speak lively and fired a shot at the entrance to the area. Keylor Navas, flawless that evening, was defeated by a returning column (81-2, 87). And once again, Rashford gave the victory to his team at the Parc des Princes.
