Paris Saint-Germain beat Manchester United 3-1 Wednesday in a UEFA Champions League match, a big step to be a contender for the last 16 ticket. 

PSG earned the away win as Brazilian players of the French club were on duty to score goals.

Neymar netted two goals against Manchester United at Old Trafford and Marquinhos scored one.

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford was the sole scorer for his team.
