THE UNKNOWN HAVE HAPPENED!

With many feel the decision to award United a penalty was the wrong call, it was sympathy for PSG:

However, the hosts should have been well visible by having dominated much of the competition, but again the nerves got them on the biggest step.

Both United’s first half goals came from sharp PSG errors:

Parises may have been missing Neymar and Edinson Cavani – taken on as a last-minute replacement -but they were against a red devils page missed many of their best players and had a lead of 2-0.

Their closing was the talk of Twitter, with many feeling their defeat was self-captured:

PSG’s history of Champions League failure continues to make difficult to read from its perspective:

Although success in Ligue 1 is only guaranteed, the campaign will once again feel like a failure, and they just have to blame themselves.

Lukaku should be United’s leading man

Belgium has come too much criticism during its time at Old Trafford, this season, especially after he endured a poor start to the campaign during Jose Mourinho .

The criticism he has received is sometimes understandable -h is first and foremost can be frustrating.

However, he has clearly rediscovered his confidence under the interim chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The 25-year-old pounced on the two opportunities that emerged and showed the predatory instincts separating him from his teammates.

Opta Duncan Alexander put his business in perspective, while co-workers Dave O & # 39; Brien showed Lukakus’ impressive ability with both feet:

Alexis Sanchez is the only player in United’s squad who comes close to Lukaku career a total of 232 goals for club and country, but he is five years older and still falls short. 19659004] The Chilean netted 30 goals in his last full season at Arsenal, but he has been a shadow of that player at Old Trafford, so in terms of goal scoring, there is no equally effective ahead of goal as Lukaku.

Rashford can become so productive in time, but he is still only 21.

The couple can float together quite well forward, so there is room for both of them in the side, but despite their limitations, Lukaku should be their principal in and around the penalty area.

What’s next?

United has advanced to the quarterfinals, which will be played on 9-10 April and 16-17, after the draw on March 15th. On the home front, United travels to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, while PSG takes on Dijon in Ligue 1 on Tuesday.
