Manchester United's comeback against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night was nothing short of extraordinary.

Man United went into the second leg two goals down and with an injury crisis.

Paul Pogba was out with suspension while, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial all missed the tie through injury.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to play a second string midfield consisting of Andreas Pereira, Fred and Scott McTominay.

And United's bench comprised of five teenagers.

But, amazingly, United were able to emerge 3-1 victors on the night, meaning they went through on away goals.

The game wasn't without controversy, though.

United desperately needed a winner going into stoppage time and it looked like they were just going to fall short.

But they were then awarded a penalty under dramatic circumstances.

Dalot's goal-bound shot hit Presnel Kimpembe on the hand.

Nothing was given but, after consultation with VAR, the penalty was awarded.

Marcus Rashford then showed incredible composure to sweep his spot-kick past Gianluigi Buffon and ensure Man United went through to the quarter-finals.

Watch the drama unfold here:

After Rashford's penalty, the cameras immediately panned to Neymar who looked perplexed by what he had just seen.

He took to Instagram after the game and he made his frustrations very, very clear.

"That is a disgrace!" Neymar wrote on his Instagram story alongside a screenshot of the alleged handball, per Goal.

"And UEFA still pick four guys who know nothing about football to review the VAR decision in slow motion... that handball simply doesn't exist!

"How do you handball behind your back? Ahh.. go f*ck yourselves."

Wow. It seems he hasn't taken his side's loss very well at all.

He could well find himself in trouble for that Instagram post.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel was asked about Neymar's Instagram after the game and called it a 'strong reaction'.

"It's... a strong reaction," he said, per Miguel Delaney of the Independent. "Sometimes after such a fight you say things you take back later.

"You can see how emotional he is, and how much it meant to him. Don't be too harsh on him. Hard to accept."
