Match background Only this chapter

Paris Saint-Germain are on the verge of a famous UEFA Champions League triumph as they welcome Manchester United to the Parc des Princes holding a two-goal lead for the conclusion of their round of 16 tie.

• First-leg goals from Presnel Kimpembe – his first in senior football – and Kylian Mbappé made Paris the first French club to win at Old Trafford and inflicted United's biggest ever home European defeat – they had never previously been beaten by more than one goal. United's misery was compounded by a late red card for Paul Pogba.

• Both teams have suffered recent round of 16 disappointment. United have not reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals since 2013/14, while Paris's last two campaigns have ended at this stage, at the hands of Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.

Highlights: Manchester United 0-2 Paris

Form guide
• This is Paris's seventh successive UEFA Champions League campaign and they have reached the round of 16 on each occasion – although they are yet to match their 1994/95 achievement of reaching the semi-finals.

• After four successive quarter-final appearances between 2013 and 2016, Paris have lost at this stage in each of the last two seasons. In 2017/18 they went down 5-2 on aggregate to Real Madrid (1-3 away, 1-2 home); 12 months earlier, they had looked set for the quarter-finals after a 4-0 first-leg defeat of Barcelona at the Parc des Princes, only to go down 6-1 in Spain – a UEFA Champions League record comeback.

• Paris's round of 16 record is therefore W4 L2.

• Paris have won three of their six two-legged knockout ties against Premier League clubs although the most recent ended in defeat against United's local rivals Manchester City in the 2015/16 quarter-finals (2-2 home, 0-1 away). That second leg is also the last UEFA Champions League match in which Paris failed to score; they have found the net in all 23 matches since.

• The French club have twice beaten English opposition at this stage of the UEFA Champions League, overcoming Chelsea in both 2014/15 (1-1 home, 2-2 away) and 2015/16 (2-1 home, 2-1 away).

Goalkeepers with 50 UEFA Champions League clean sheets

• Paris have already won at home to English opponents this season, beating Liverpool 2-1 on matchday five – their first success in six matches against English clubs (D3 L2). They lost 3-2 at Anfield in their first Group C game.

• Paris have lost only one of their nine home fixtures against English visitors (W4 D4), 3-0 against Chelsea in the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League group stage. They are on a run of six games without defeat against Premier League opposition in Paris (W3 D3) but have not kept a clean sheet in any of those matches.

• The Parisian club have lost only two of their last 50 European home games since crashing 4-2 to Hapoel Tel-Aviv in the 2006/07 UEFA Cup group stage (W32 D16) – they went down 3-1 to Barcelona in the 2014/15 quarter-finals and 2-1 against Real Madrid in last season's round of 16 second leg.

• Paris picked up seven points at home in Group C this season, also beating Crvena zvezda 6-1 and drawing 2-2 with Napoli. They are nevertheless without a clean sheet in four UEFA Champions League home games.

• Despite beating Liverpool and Crvena zvezda in their last two group games, and the first-leg success, Paris have still won only four of their last ten UEFA Champions League matches (D2 L4).

• Paris have won all 15 UEFA competition ties when they have recorded a first-leg away victory, most recently against Bayer Leverkusen in the 2013/14 round of 16 when a 4-0 away win preceded a 2-1 home victory at the Parc des Princes. On each of the three occasions that they won the first leg 2-0 away, they did not concede at home (W2 D1).

• Paris's European shoot-out record is W0 L1:
3-4 v Rangers, 2001/02 UEFA Cup third round

Matić on United's Paris reverse

Manchester United
• This is the English club's 11th round of 16 tie (W6 L4), and their 18th participation in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages overall. Having lost their first two last-16 contests, United won all but one of the next seven before last season's defeat by Sevilla.

• In 2017/18 United drew the first leg at Sevilla 0-0 but were beaten 2-1 in the home second leg, ending a 21-match unbeaten run in Europe at Old Trafford (W17 D4).

• The draw at Sevilla made it four away games in the round of 16 without a victory for United (D3 L1), whose overall away record at this stage of the UEFA Champions League is W2 D5 L3. They have failed to score in half of those games.

• United won their first two away matches in Group H this season, at Young Boys (3-0) and Juventus (2-1). A 2-1 loss at Valencia on matchday six was only United's second reverse in their last 12 European away games (W7 D3), with just seven goals conceded during that period; the Valencia contest was the first time they had shipped more than one in any of those matches.

• United have lost just six of their last 27 European matches, home and away (W16 D5); the losses to Valencia and Paris are the first time they have suffered successive defeats since November/December 2012. They last lost three in a row earlier that year in the knockout phase of the UEFA Europa League.

• The Red Devils have won six of their seven two-legged knockout contests against French clubs. Ole Gunnar Solskjær scored in the sole defeat, against Monaco in the 1997/98 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals (0-0 away, 1-1 home).

Buffon joy at Old Trafford clean sheet

• Most recently, United overcame St-Étienne in the round of 32 in their victorious 2016/17 UEFA Europa League campaign, winning 3-0 at home and 1-0 away.

• That made it three successive victories against French sides, home and away, for United, whose eight-match run without defeat (W6 D2) against French clubs was ended in the first leg of this tie. They are unbeaten in their last four trips to France (W2 D2), since a 1-0 loss at LOSC Lille in the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League group stage in a match played at the Stade de France. United have lost only twice in their 13 away games with Ligue 1 clubs (W4 D7).

• This is Solskjær's first tie in the UEFA Champions League proper as a coach; he oversaw eight qualifiers while in charge of Molde (W3 D4 L1). He took the Norwegian club into the UEFA Europa League group stage in 2012/13, and into the round of 32 of that competition three years later.

• United have never come back from a first-leg home defeat to win the tie in UEFA competition, losing both legs of all three previous contests – in the UEFA Champions League against Bayern München in the 2000/01 quarter-finals (0-1, 1-2) and AC Milan in the 2004/05 round of 16 (0-1, 0-1) and in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League round of 16 against Athletic Club (2-3, 1-2).

• United's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
6-5 v Chelsea, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League final
3-4 v Torpedo Moskva, 1992/93 UEFA Cup first round
4-5 v Videoton, 1984/85 UEFA Cup quarter-finals

• The first leg was Marco Verratti's 50th appearance in both the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, and UEFA club competition overall.

• Paris have won their last eight games in all competitions, since a first Ligue 1 defeat of the season at Lyon (1-2) on 3 February. On Saturday they came from behind to win 2-1 at Caen.

• The Parisians have kept six clean sheets in that eight-match run, scoring 20 goals and conceding two.

• Paris have 71 points after 26 Ligue 1 games, the highest tally at that stage in French top-flight history.

• Mbappé, who has contributed five of Paris's last six Ligue 1 goals, has 50 goals and 28 assists for the club in 76 matches in all competitions.

• Mbappé struck twice against Nîmes on 23 February, the first his 50th in the league – making him the youngest player to reach that mark. He now has 53 goals in 89 Ligue 1 games.

• Presnel Kimpembe made his 100th Paris appearance in a 3-0 defeat of Dijon in the French Cup quarter-finals on 26 February. Paris, who are bidding for a record fifth successive triumph in the competition, will take on Vitré or Nantes in the last four on 2/3 April.

• After 21 wins in a row and five successive triumphs in the competition between 2014 and 2018, Paris lost 2-1 at home to Guingamp in the French League Cup quarter-finals on 9 January. It was also their first domestic loss of the season and their first domestic cup defeat in 45 games.

• Gianluigi Buffon is the oldest player to appear in this season's UEFA Champions League, and the fourth oldest of all time. He was aged 41 years and 15 days when he faced United in the first leg.

• The first leg is United's only defeat in their last 16 matches in all competitions (W13 D2) and their sole reverse since Ole Gunnar Solskjær replaced José Mourinho as manager on 19 December. On Saturday they beat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford.

• Solskjær won his first eight games – the best start for a manager in United's history.

• The Red Devils had scored in 17 successive matches in all competitions before the 0-2 loss to Paris; they have now drawn a blank in two of the last five.

• Phil Jones (illness), Antonio Valencia (calf) and Matteo Darmian (knock) have all been sidelined.

Stuttgart (youth coach and U19s assistant coach), Augsburg (U19s, academy coordinator and reserves), Mainz (U19s and first-team head coach), Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain

• Tuchel had a fairly undistinguished playing career, retiring prematurely in 1998 due to injury. His first off-pitch role was with the Stuttgart youth team. He subsequently joined Augsburg, where he coached the U19s and reserve sides as well as serving as academy coordinator.

• Tuchel moved to Mainz in 2008 and was initially in charge of the U19s, whom he led to a German title. A year after joining the club, Tuchel succeeded Jørn Andersen as coach of the senior team. He went on to qualify twice for the UEFA Europa League, though Mainz were eliminated at the third qualifying round stage on both occasions.

• He took over from Jürgen Klopp in the Dortmund dugout prior to the 2015/16 campaign and led his side to the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, where they came up against Klopp's Liverpool team – and lost 5-4 on aggregate.

• Dortmund fared well under Tuchel in the Bundesliga in 2015/16, racking up 78 points to finish second behind Bayern München and qualify automatically for the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League group stage. They were also beaten by Bayern in the German Cup final in Tuchel's debut season.

• Tuchel's first coaching honour followed in 2016/17, Dortmund overcoming Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 in the German Cup final in what proved to be his last match in charge; he left the club three days later and returned to football 12 months later, signing a two-year deal to replace Unai Emery at Paris.


Ole Gunnar Solskjær

Date of birth: 26 February 1973
Nationality: Norwegian
Playing career: Clausenengen, Molde, Manchester United
Coaching career: Manchester United (reserves), Molde (twice), Cardiff, Manchester United (caretaker)

• The scorer of one of the most famous goals in Manchester United's history, Solskjær returned to Old Trafford on 19 December 2018, taking over as manager for the remainder of the season following the departure of José Mourinho.

• The predatory striker's senior playing career began with Norwegian third division side Clausenegen before a move to Molde in last 1994 caught the attention of United, who swooped for his signature 18 months later. Proved an immediate hit in England, scoring 18 league goals in his first season as the Red Devils retained the title.

• Enjoyed a brilliant 1998/99 season; twice scored four times in a league game and won the FA Cup before United completed the treble by beating Bayern München in the UEFA Champions League final with two goals in added time, Solskjær coming off the bench to score the winner.

• Won further league titles in 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2007, also lifting the 2004 FA Cup, and scored 23 times in 67 games for Norway, featuring at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000; he was forced to retire in 2007 by a knee injury and promptly moved into coaching with United, earning his badges and spending two years in charge of the reserves.

• Took over as Molde boss in November 2010, winning the Norwegian title in his first season – the club's maiden championship. Molde retained the title in 2012 and won the Norwegian Cup the following year, Solskjær subsequently departing for a short, unsuccessful stint in charge of Cardiff, whom he was unable to save from Premier League relegation; returned to Molde in October 2015 before United again came calling three years later.ær

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid then made it three wins in a row in 2017/18, becoming the fourth club to win three or more successive titles in European Cup history, and the first to do it twice.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 23 times, including 22 in succession.

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 43 times. Only three times – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Real Madrid in this season's round of 16, and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in last season's quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success.

• Thirty ties have been decided on away goals, including 11 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2007/08 semi-final.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. England has also provided four clubs on seven other occasions – as has Spain four times and Germany twice.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) and Robert Lewandowski (2018/19) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on matchday one of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, one more than Ronaldo.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on matchday six in 2007/08 aged 43 years and 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared; he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored in the UEFA Champions League, aged 17 years and 195 days. He found the net in Olympiacos's 5-1 defeat at Rosenborg on 1 October 1997.
