(CNN)Paris Saint-Germain was left experiencing some unwanted Champions League deja vu, as Marcus Rashford struck a late winner to give Manchester United all three points in the opening match of the group stages Tuesday.

While the coronavirus pandemic means United fans may not have been able to experience another magical Parisian night in the same way, it will certainly go a long way to lifting the mood at a club that has endured a difficult start to the season.

An improbable 3-1 win on that famous night in March 2019, with victory secured by a last-minute Rashford penalty, overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit and earned United passage through to the quarterfinals -- and more than likely swayed the club hierarchy into giving Ole Gunnar Solskjær, then only interim coach, the manager's job on a permanent basis.

It was the 27th penalty United had been awarded since the start of last season, more than any other club in Europe's big five leagues.

But as the game wore on, United certainly looked the most likely to snatch a winning goal and while PSG admittedly had injury concerns of its own, the French side was looking like a shadow of the one that reached last season's final.
