Manchester United fell short of securing a spot in the Champions League group stage as they suffered a 3-1 defeat in the second leg of their qualifier against Paris St Germain.

A 47th-minute equalizer from Lisa Naalsund instilled hope for the Women’s Super League side, but goals from Lieke Martens and Sandy Baltimore led PSG to a 4-2 aggregate victory.

Controversially disallowed goals, woodwork hits, and missed opportunities plagued United’s efforts, with Leah Galton and Ella Toone encountering tough luck.

PSG initiated a strong start, nearly securing an early lead when Tabitha Chawinga’s attempt was denied by Mary Earps. However, Martens capitalized on a rebound, curling a shot past the United keeper for the opener.

Despite Naalsund’s goal, PSG swiftly regained their lead, with Martens scoring her second from close range after an impressive setup by Chawinga.

PSG solidified their advantage as Sandy Baltimore outpaced United’s defense, chipping the ball past Earps from a challenging angle.

United persisted in their pursuit, with Katie Zelem forcing a save from Kiedrzynek through a free-kick. However, Galton’s headed effort was disallowed, and Toone’s last-minute strike hit the post, concluding United’s night on a disappointing note.]
