Man Utd knock out PSG in epic comeback

Intro

PSG look to cement their place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after a 2-0 win in the first leg at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

MATCH FACTS

No club has ever progressed to the next round of the Champions League after losing the first leg of a knockout match at home by two or more goals (34 previous cases).

Paris Saint-Germain have lost just one of their last 16 Champions League games at home (W10 D5), but that defeat came in the Round of 16 last season against Real Madrid (1-2).

None of the last six English sides to face Paris SG at the Parc des Princes have won. In fact, the only English team to prevail away from home versus PSG were José Mourinho’s Chelsea in September 2004 (3-0).

Four of the last five two-legged encounters between teams from England and France in the Champions League knockout phase have seen the French side progress.

PSG have scored 35 goals in their last 10 Champions League home games but haven’t kept a clean sheet in each of the last five.

Manchester United have won only one of their last 10 Champions League knockout games (D3 L6), with this coming against Olympiakos in March 2014 (3-0 at Old Trafford). Their last away win in the knockout stages came eight years ago against Schalke (2-0), in April 2011.
