It was a night of utmost drama in the Champions League as Manchester United produced probably the biggest comeback of the season by beating Paris Saint Germain in their own backyard. The Red Devils overturned a 2-0 deficit from the first leg and won the second leg by 3-1 to advance to the quarter-final of the elite club competition. Romelu Lukaku scored twice while Marcus Rashford scored the deciding penalty to help their side get over the line against the Ligue 1 giants, who scored one goal through Juan Bernat on the night.
Here is how the Twitter reacted to the dramatic victory that Manchester United snatched from the jaws of defeat to advance to the next round of the Champions League 2018/19.
Some people were saluting the outstanding performance by the Red Devils on the night.
If you’re a Tottenham fan, a Chelsea fan or an Arsenal fan and you’re not happy with Manchester United qualifying for the quater finals, then football really isn’t for you
