Manchester United’s disastrous 60 second period against Paris Saint-Germain could prove decisive in this season’s Champions League campaign.
PSG took the lead midway through the second-half through Marquinhos after David de Gea’s superb save forced a corner.
Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani had squandered glorious chances to give United the lead earlier in the second-period.
And just moments after Thomas Tuchel’s side took a crucial lead, Fred was dismissed for a challenge on Ander Herrera.
Fred was extremely fortunate to receive a straight red card for a headbutt on Leandro Paredes in the first-half.
But remarkably, he was actually unlucky to be given a second yellow after he won the ball going to ground against the former United midfielder.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now rue not making what would have been a prudent decision to remove Fred from the firing line at half-time.
