Man Utd won PSG in the opening match of the Champions League


Man Utd won 2-1 over PSG in the opening match of the UEFA Champions League group stage of the Champions League.

In front of a higher-rated opponent, Man Utd could still win 3 full points thanks to a reasonable play, along with the shining moment of Marcus Rashford. All 3 goals at the Parc des Princes were scored by the Man Utd player.

Bruno Fernandes scored the opening goal in the 24th minute, Anthony Martial had an own goal in the 55th minute to help PSG equalize 1-1. In the 87th minute, Rashford set the score 2-1 for Man Utd with a decisive kick from the 16.5 m line.

Man Utd could not use the best squad

Captain Harry Maguire`s injury forced coach Ole Solskjaer to give Axel Tuanzebe the chance to play. Luke Shaw was pulled back to play as a midfielder, to give up his left-wing position to rookie Alex Telles.

According to 188bet, 5-3-2 strategy was a great choice for Man Utd. The Red Devils were focused on defending, at the same time waiting for the opportunity to counterattack. MU`s patchy defense suddenly played well under the pressure from the home team`s continuous attack.

MU`s attack situations are as simple as possible. This is also the reason why Paul Pogba, a player who often has complicated handling, has to sit on the reserve bench.

The clever strategy of coach Solskjaer helped MU in the 24th minute. Diallo`s foul in the penalty area brought the Premier League representative a penalty. In the first attempt, Bruno Fernandes did not win over Keylor Navas. However, the captain of MU corrected the mistake after being allowed to retake the penalty by VAR.

MU successfully disabled PSG`s midfield in the first half

PSG`s midfield with Herrera, Gueye, and Danilo Pereira was paralyzed in the first half. The task of launching the attack is entirely on Neymar. The Brazilian star stirred MU`s defense with breakthrough situations from the left wing into the middle area.

Neymar took the ball to create space, but could not find his teammates. PSG`s best chance in the first half was Di Maria`s kick that was blocked by De Gea in the 12th minute.

Coach Tuchel asked the students to attack immediately in the second half. The pressure of the homeowner was clearly shown in the 54th minute. After earning a penalty, Martial made a big mistake with his own goal.

The Ligue 1 champions maintain the pressure in the next few minutes. However, the MU defense is in time to adjust and reduce the pressure for De Gea. MU then gradually regained his position since Paul Pogba came on the field. Pogba and Bruno help the Red Devils gain control of the midfield area and have many options to approach the home team`s goal.

Letting Pogba join in the match was the right decision of coach Solskjaer

Coach Solskjaer made the right decision when he launched Paul Pogba in the 67th minute. The French midfielder helped MU regain control of the midfield area and have more attacking options. The former Juventus star was the one who made the assists for Rashford to score the decisive goal in the 87th minute.

Coach Tuchel used all five substitutions in the second half, but the names he launched on the pitch did not create any connection with the expensive stars in the attack. In the last 15 minutes of the match, PSG could not hit De Gea`s goal, thereby watching the opponent leave Parc des Princes with 3 points.

The winning series record in the history of MU

Man Utd set a record after defeating PSG 2-1 in the Champions League group stage this season. According to Opta, Man Utd has had 10 consecutive wins, an unprecedented achievement in the history of this football team.

Before PSG, the Red Devils defeated Newcastle, Brighton (3 times), Leicester, Man City, Crystal Palace, Aston Villa, LASK, Derby County. The defeat of Sevilla in the semi-finals of the Europa League does not count because it took place on a neutral field.

Parc des Princes continue to be the field that brings sweet memories to MU. Coach Solskjaer and his students continued to create an impressive victory over the team that is currently the defending champion of France.
