Solskjaer: Why Manchester United lost 3-1 to Paris Saint-Germain

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lamented Manchester United’s poor finishing against Paris Saint-Germain, following our 3-1 loss to them on Wednesday.

Neymar opened the scoring in the first half, with a close-range finish from the right of De Gea’s post, before Marcus Rashford levelled things with a deflected shot.

After the break, the French champions added two more goals, courtesy of Marquinhos and Neymar, to make our next game harder for us.

But things could have been different, had Martial scored when he had a chance to put us on top, and Solskjaer didn’t hesitate to point that out during his post-match reaction.

He said: “PSG were there for the taking at the start of the second half. We had to take our chances.

“Tonight showed how much we developed in these types of games, with some more clinical finishing, we’d be smiling.”

Solskjaer also bemoaned PSG’s second goal, which seemed offside, saying: “If Marquinhos had bigger studs [for Paris Saint-Germain’s second goal of the night] on he’d have been offside. It’s tight in games like these.”

United will face RB Leipzig next week, and will have to win the match if they want to qualify to the next round.
