Post.
So, a truly brilliant game at Old Trafford sees PSG win 3-1 in the end. It had everything and was full of controversy on the first half after United fought hard to draw level. The Red Devils had plenty of chances to win the game at the start of the second-half and then collapsed in a matter of minutes as they went behind to a sloppy goal and Fred was sent off. PSG looked comfortable from then on and a brilliant counter-attacking goal at the death for Neymar sealed the three points. It is all to
