FT | PSG make Old Trafford their home this time and beat United in a match where they clearly deserved to win. See you next time!

'88 | Mata tries to bundle his way through the PSG defence, but he has to offload. Rashford tries a strike at goal, but he sees his effort blocked. Frustration for the home side.

'84 | United work the ball around the edge of the box with pace before Herrera releases Young down the right flank. However, he moves a fraction too early and is caught offside.

'80 | Thiago Silva and Kimpembe are well placed in the middle to clear two crosses from Young away from danger before Mata skews a low strike wide of the target.

'76 | Verratti puts his body on the line to stop a drive from Herrera on the edge of the box. Pogba did well to tee up his team-mate, but the Italian was well placed to deny the United midfielder.

'72 | The home side work the ball down the left flank and Shaw collects from a cross from the right flank by Herrera. He lines up a strike at goal, only to be denied by a good block by Kehrer.

'68 | PSG are rolling now and are putting United under serious pressue. De Gea keeps his side in the game and perhaps the tie with a fine stop to deny Bernat's blast from the left inside channel, turning the ball over the bar.

'64 | Mbappe is played through on the counter by Marquinhos. He has acres of room to surge into the right inside channel. The forward only has De Gea to beat, but he tries to chip the Spaniard and sees his effort stopped with one hand.

'60 | GOAL! Man United - PSG 0-2. Mbappé! The visitors double their advantage on the break, with Mbappe converting from close range producing a simple finish. Di Maria was played into acres of space down the left flank. The Argentine supplied a perfect low ball across the face of goal for the run of the forward. Mbappe placed his effort past De Gea from six yards to hand his team a crucial second away goal. PSG are in complete control now.

'53 | GOAL! Man United - PSG 0-1. Kimpembe! The French champions take the lead as Kimpembe converts from the corner. Di Maria whipped the resulting corner to the back post. Kimpembe stole a march on Matic, who switched off, allowing the defender to guide the ball beyond De Gea into the roof of the net. PSG have a vital away goal.

'48 | Martial is also withdrawn at the break as Mata replaces the Frenchman, who may have been carrying an injury. Kimpembe and Rashford collide down the right flank, but the referee waves play on amid the contact and appeals from the United fans.

HT | It has been a tepid first half between Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of this round-of-16 Champions League clash. The visitors have had the best opportunity of the match when Kylian Mbappe was put clean through, only for the Frenchman to fire wide of the target.

'44 | Matic has to act at the back for the hosts to bring down Draxler on the charge. PSG have a free-kick in a threatening position. Lingard is down for the hosts after falling down after releasing the ball downfield prior to the Draxler break. That will be a concern for Solskjaer.

'40 | PSG break through the United midfield and Draxler threads a pass through looking for Mbappe. Di Maria takes over from the Frenchman and tries to round De Gea, only to place a tame effort straight at the keeper. However, the Argentine was offside anyway.

'36 | Kimpembe takes his life into his own hands as he lunges in on a challenge with Shaw. The referee deems that it was a fair one, although it was a close call. Yet another player goes into the book this evening. Bernat fouls Young and is yellow carded.

'32 | Young takes out Mbappe on the counter down the left flank and goes into the book. United are able to clear their lines from the resulting free-kick. The deliveries into the box have not been good enough from either team this evening.

'28 | Verratti and Draxler combine to open up the United defence. The German slides a pass through to Mbappe in the box, but on the slide the Frenchman can only slice his strike wide of the target. Replays show he may have been offside, which could have seen the goal disallowed by VAR.

'24 | Another booking for the visitors as Draxler is carded for a foul on Herrera. Both sides are not committing too many men forward at this stage. It has been a reserved start at Old Trafford.

'20 | Kimpembe makes a vital clearing header at the near post to prevent Young's dangerous cross from reaching three United players in the middle waiting to pounce. He had to make that header.

'16 | Pogba makes a lung-bursting run down the right flank and he beats the challenge of Kimpembe with ease. The Frenchman tries to fire a low ball across the face of goal, but Buffon is able to gather and hold amid pressure from Lingard.

'12 | Kimpembe earns the first yellow card of the match as he trips Rashford on the charge. United have tried to get at the PSG defence in the early stages of the match, but they've lacked rhythm in the final third.

'8 | Lingard makes a run into the final third and releases Rashford. The England man has options in the middle, but he fails to beat Bernat with his pass inside. PSG spread the ball around the edge of the United box before Di Maria takes on the strike, curling his effort just wide of the post. A warning for the hosts.

'4 | PSG are able to clear their lines from the free-kick. A wasted opportunity for the home side in the opening minutes, although this United side is lacking in height outside of their central defenders and Matic.
