Manchester United boss Solskjaer saw his side lose for the first time since replacing Jose Mourinho against a brilliant PSG at Old Trafford.
The Ligue 1 giants went into the game depleted, with star duo Neymar and Edinson Cavani both missing out through injury.
But PSG were superior to Manchester United in nearly every department, with goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe enough to give them a stunning first leg lead.
Solskjaer was fuming after United went 1-0 down courtesy of Pimpembe’s goal.
And he was seen motioning on the touchline for his players to get further forward and chase an equaliser.
However, it appears not to have been a grave error.
Right from the restart United players started to pour forward. Just about everybody seemed eager to get on the scoresheet.
But PSG hit them on the counter mere moments after and United, simply, could never respond.
