Man Utd 2-1 PSG: Late Rashford Goal Sinks UCL Finalists

Marcus Rashford scored a late goal against last season’s finalists Paris Saint-Germain for Manchester United to mark their Champions League return with victory.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring with a penalty to reward United for their first half superb efforts with a lead.

However, the French champions cum hosts made a far superior comeback in the second half and scored a well deserved equaliser when Anthony Martial headed into his own net.

David de Gea had to put in a much-improved display in United’s goal, making strong saves to deny PSG’s superstar duo Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

And when both sides looked set to share the points, Rashford collected a pass from substitute Paul Pogba, dribbled a PSG defender and shot into the back of the net from 20 yards.

Meanwhile, former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo was an unused substitute for the Red Devils.

In other news, Emmanuel Dennis was on target as he scored in Club Brugge’s 2-1 win away to Zenit St Petersburg in Champions League opening game.
