PSG Ended Man United’s Run, Roma Edged Porto

Paris Saint-Germain got an advantage in their Champions League round of 16 match up after taking home 2-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Facing an inform United side that looked rejuvenated under Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Le Parisien did not show any concern whatsoever.

Despite losing their two star strikers, Neymar and Edinson Cavani, PSG still able to put on an excellent display with quality possession play.

After a goalless first 45 minutes, the French giant finally got the break through on 53 minutes through Presnel Kimpembe’s close range finish.

That opening goal made things much easier for the visitor as they continue to control things and eventually netted their second goal from Kylian Mbappe’s effort on the hour mark.

That 2-0 scoreline pretty killed of the tie as Man United struggling to get anything going attacking wise, with Gianluigi Buffon hardly making any saves.

Taking a two goals lead going into the second leg at home is certainly an advantage for PSG, but they must not get carried away just yet.

In another tie, AS Roma also got themselves a lead in their battle against FC Porto, but the Italian outfit are far from comfortable.

Winning 2-1 at home is a good result, but with the next tie set to be held in Portugal along with Porto’s away goal, things can get tricky for Eusebio Di Franceco’s effort.

Young midfielder, Nicolo Zaniolo was key for Roma’s win on the night as he netted both of his team’s goal.

Giallorossi still need to battle hard though as they must travel to Porto in the second leg ,which won’t be easy.
