Manchester United have equalled a club record by scoring against Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League last-16 second leg clash in Paris.

The Old Trafford outfit got on the scoreboard early, with Romelu Lukaku pouncing on a mistake from Thilo Kehrer just two minutes in to put his side in front.

It was the quickest goal scored by the club in a Champions League knockout stage match since Wayne Rooney’s strike 63 seconds in against Bayern Munich in 2010.

With the goal, the Premier League outfit made it 21 consecutive matches away from home with a goal scored, levelling a Manchester United record set between 1956 and 1957 under Sir Matt Busby.

Lukaku would add a second when he tapped in after Gianluigi Buffon spilled a Marcus Rashford shot, putting United back in front on the half-hour mark following Juan Bernat’s 12th minute equaliser.
