After suffering a 2-0 home loss to the big-spending Ligue 1 champions, the visitors upset the odds to seal progress from this last-16 clash in remarkable fashion.
Romelu Lukaku scored either side of Juan Bernat’s effort in a frantic first half that made way for an edgy second period at the Parc des Princes, where the video assistant referee’s late intervention proved the catalyst to a remarkable win.
Marcus Rashford slammed home a stoppage-time spot-kick after referee Damir Skomina adjudged Kimpembe to have handled a Diogo Dalot shot as United progressed to the quarter-finals on away goals after it ended 3-3 on aggregate.

And to make matters even more difficult, United have a number of players unavailable for the game with Paul Pogba suspended, while Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, Matteo Darmian, Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia are all injured.
PSG have absentees too, with Neymar still recovering from a foot injury. Edinson Cavani has returned to training following a hip injury but is not expected to start the game.
However, Thomas Tuchel still has a wealth of talent to choose from to finish off the job and French daily Le Parisien have predicted how PSG may line-up which you can see below.

Yes, Le Parisien has predicted the same XI from the first leg and why would Tuchel change a formula that worked so well?
Mbappe is up top on his own but will be supported by the likes of Angel di Maria and Dani Alves and Julian Draxler going forward.
Meanwhile, Marco Verratti and Marquinhos kept Paul Pogba quiet in the first game and because the Frenchman was sent off in the first leg and is thus ineligible, their job is set to be so much easier.
The back four picks itself with experienced Gianluigi Buffon between the sticks. This is PSG’s to lose.
Olivier Giroud has managed to land himself a role as the Green Goblin in the newest Hollywood blockbuster ‘Spider-Man New Generation’.
The Chelsea star will lend his voice to the iconic villain for the animated film, due for release on December 12 in cinemas.
Confirming the news on Twitter, the 32-year-old wrote: “I am very happy to announce that I will be lending my voice to the Green Goblin in the film Spider-Man New Generation, December 12th at the cinema!”
Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe is also set to feature in the French-speaking version of the film as Scorpion – another villain.
The World Cup winner also confirmed the news on Twitter, saying: “Spider-Man New Generation coming soon!!! Watch out for Scorpion (it’s me). RV December 12”
Giroud will be hoping to take inspiration from his clinical character onto the pitch, having scored just once this season.
The forward has played second fiddle to Alvaro Morata up front this season and has featured heavily in the Europa League instead.
However, he is still part of the France squad due to a succession of injuries forcing Didier Deschamps to cull up the striker, who failed to make a single shot on target in 546 minutes of World Cup action this summer.
