"We have had a great run, we came into this game in a great frame of mind, great form, but it's a big step up", said Solskjaer.

"Manchester United should be at the top and this is a top team we've played against".

"To open the scoring in this sort of Champions League match against United is a reward and something that I will always remember", said the France global.

Paul Pogba picked up a red card just as injury time was starting for a second yellow card that will be a blow for any chance of a comeback in the away leg in three weeks time.

"You can see we haven't played games at this level for a while", Solskjaer said.

Manchester United advanced to the Round of 16 after finishing second in Group H, while Paris Saint-Germain advanced to the Round of 16 after finishing first in Group C.

It would have been more but for some fine goalkeeping from David de Gea.

They are searching for a Hispanic woman in her 20s who reportedly asked a man if "he could take her child" a short time earlier. The pair put the infant in the woman's auto where the heating was on, and discovered the uncut umbilical cord.

As if Solskjaer's men were not already facing a mountain to climb on 6 March, Pogba will miss the trip to the French capital after picking up a late second booking to compound injuries to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

Paris Saint-Germain made their Champions League win over Manchester United "seem easy", according to goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

PSG scored twice through Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe, with both goals being set up by the hated former United winger Angel di Maria, to win 2-0. Yes, we won, but we still need to play at Parc des Princes.

Kimpembe was left completely unmarked to side-foot home Di Maria's corner from point-blank range on 53 minutes.

The World Cup victor has scored eight goals and set up another five since Solskjaer took over in mid-December and having been given licence to roam from midfield has looked a player re-born.

"I must thank my teammates for an incredible performance", the Italian said. "It's not going to be a season-defining one for us". It has to be one that we are going to learn from. It's the competition that matters most to its moneyed Qatari owners, who didn't sink all those hundreds of millions of euros into a once-middling club just to dominate France.

The 20-year-old World Cup victor slotted a huge chance wide on the half hour mark, although Mbappe would likely have been ruled offside by VAR, on its introduction to the Champions League, even if he had found the net.
