Man Utd sealed a significant victory last night when they clashed their horns with Paris Saint Germain in their first Champions League group stage fixture.
The match featured three goals, including Anthony Martial’s own goal, all goals thus ironically coming from United men. Nevertheless, it was yet another Champions League night for the Mancunians where the likes of Marcus Rashford came to their rescue.
Previously, the 22-year-old Englishman had converted a stoppage-time penalty thus contributing to a 3-1 scoreline at PSG in the second leg of the last 16 in 2018-19, which helped them advance through to the quarter-finals on the basis of away goals.
Last night, the first goal came from United when Bruno Fernandes tallied in a spot-kick in the 23rd minute, which was then neutralised by their own goal. The match seemed to end in a 1-1 deadlock until the climax when Rashford smashed a shot across Keylor Navas into the bottom left corner.
Whilst the win by itself ignited excitement amongst supporters, the Red Devils have broken one of their own previous records by registering last night’s victory. Accordingly, they now have 10 wins in consecutive away games in all competitions for the first time in their history.
Furthermore, the English club thus remain unbeaten in their last 18 away games, all the glory of which is shared by Solskjær and his management.
While it remains true that the Norwegian gaffer has a lot of work to put in to the Premier League table, the record-breaking advancements the club has been making and the occasional push he has been providing to the Red Devils have kept the 47-year-old from going out of favour from the managerial position at Old Trafford.
