The impossible, the meltdown, the supergrow, has actually become reality. What no one could even begin to imagine actually happened. The craziest thing is not even that PSG retired in the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. It is much more the question of the “how”.
After the draw of the round of 16, it was clear that the task for the Tuchel Elf will be a comparably simple. After the dismissal of Jose Mourinho and the entry into office of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, combined with his record start as coach, the tide turned. Suddenly, the Red Devils were the favorites. Then again PSG played the hosts at Old Trafford so close to the wall, that after the 2-0 win no one would have bet even a tired penny on the team from Manchester. And then it happened: The Supergau! Manchester United managed the feat of winning 3-1 in a game in which they made exactly three shots on goal, all resulting from self-inflicted mistakes of the opponent, the last even in the 94th minute!
