Paris Saint-Germain inflicted a first defeat on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United manager this evening with a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.
Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave the visitors two crucial away goals which leaves them with one foot in the quarter-finals ahead of next month's return leg at the Parc des Princes.
United will have to play that match without Paul Pogba too after he was shown a late red card for a second bookable offence.
Find out how all of the action unfolded courtesy of Sports Mole's minute-by-minute updates below.
United were not given a chance by most when this draw was made on December 17, but Jose Mourinho was sacked a day later and since then the Red Devils have looked like a completely different team. PSG are one of Europe's most dangerous sides, though, so it promises to be a very intriguing match tonight.
Let's have a quick look at the team news before we get underway...
SUBS: Romero, Dalot, Jones, Fred, Mata, Sanchez, Lukaku
SUBS: Areola, Kurzawa, Dagba, Paredes, Nkunku, Choupo-Moting, Diaby
2 - Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium has seen fewer goals (2) than any other venue in the 2018-19 Champions League, although tonight's visitors PSG have scored more goals (17) than any other side in this season's competition.

Clear chances have been few and far between and it has been scrappier than many would have been expected. We still have 45 minutes for that to change, of course, but so far it is turning into a cagey first leg.
VAR may well have ruled it out for offside as the winger looked to be leaning ever-so slightly beyond the last man, but that is about as good as it has got for either side in terms of goalscoring chances in this match.
The Argentine curled an early shot wide of the far post too, while Alves fired a free kick over the crossbar in the closing stages of the half, but when it comes to clear openings it really is only that Mbappe chance so far.
Lindelof also fed a long-range shot wide of the target towards the end of the half, but United need to know more of a cutting edge in the final third if they are to give themselves the advantage going into the second leg.
0 - PSG have failed to register a single shot on target in the first half of a Champions League match for the first time since their quarter-final second leg against Barcelona in April 2015. Restricted. #MUNPSG pic.twitter.com/zklNr8ASZm— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 12, 2019

The resulting corner is delivered by Di Maria, who curls it into a brilliant area. Matic and De Gea both leave it for each other, but Kimpembe is alive and fires the ball into the roof of the net from close range!

The Argentine slides his low pass into the perfect area in the middle for Mbappe, who once again show electric pace to burst into the box and guide his finish past De Gea.
3 - Kylian Mbappe has become the third player to score in his first three away Champions League appearances in England, after Luis Enrique and Edin Dzeko. Talent. #MUNPSG pic.twitter.com/74ZM2aMxiW— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) February 12, 2019
He is only 20 years old!
It is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first defeat as United boss, but more importantly it leaves them with a mountain to climb when they visit the Parc des Princes on March 6.
Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe got the goals as PSG emerged victorious from the first ever meeting between these two sides, and the Ligue 1 outfit now have one foot in the quarter-finals.
Thank you very much for joining Sports Mole for tonight's match as PSG take control of their Champions League last-16 tie with Manchester United. I will leave you with our match report, and be sure to stick around for reaction too.
