Bruno Fernandes had given the visitors the lead (23) from the penalty spot with a retaken effort after Keylor Navas had encroached whilst saving the original effort. An unfortunate Anthony Martial own goal (55) drew an off-colour PSG level but United were the better side in Paris.
They executed their tactics brilliantly to quell the threat of last year's Champions League runners-up with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe expertly marshalled by Axel Tuanzebe, who was making his first start since 2019.
The defeat was PSG's first home defeat in the Champions League group stages since 2004.

How United shone in Paris...
After a season away from the Champions League, United returned to action at the Parc des Princes, where just 19 months ago they became the first team in Champions League history to overturn a two-goal first-leg deficit away from home.

United looked convincing and well drilled in a 3-5-2 formation with Luke Shaw playing as part of a back three with Scott McTominay and Fred protecting their defence with great authority.
hey had taken a deserved lead in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot.
Martial won it with a driving run that Abdou Diallo could only stop with a foul.
Now, Bruno Fernandes had ended his run of 18 successive penalties scored in the league for Sporting Lisbon and United with his miss against Newcastle.
It didn’t cost in the end in that game as they ran out 4-1 winners but what it had done is plant a seed of doubt.
Kaylor Navas was ready for the trademark jump before the kick and went the right way to save it.
The only problem was he was about a foot off his line when he did it so the kick was retaken.
Now in this position you might think Fernandes, his confidence perhaps shot, might hand the responsibility over for the retake.
