The amazing stats behind Man Utd’s stunning comeback

It was a stunning comeback for Manchester United.

A contentious late VAR decision awarded a penalty to the Premier League club at Parc des Princes, with Marcus Rashford netting from the spot four minutes into stoppage time to complete a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain on the night and send the Old Trafford outfit through on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

Manchester United entered the night down 2-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford, with the turnaround the first time any side have advanced in a Champions League knockout tie after falling by two or more goals at home in the opening leg.

The make it even more striking, the winner from Rashford was the first penalty he has ever taken in a competitive match for Manchester United.

It was just the continuation of good form for the Old Trafford outfit, who have won more matches than any side in Europe’s top five leagues other than Manchester City since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over in December.

Romelu Lukaku’s opening goal also saw the club equal a Matt Busby-era record for the Old Trafford outfit by netting in their 21st consecutive match away from home .
