Who saw United’s 3-1 win in Paris coming?
Congratulations if you did and put a bet on it. One fan who called it correctly hopefully did stick some money on.
One supporter sent a message ahead of the game, predicting a 3-1 win, with Romelu Lukaku scoring twice.
And… wait for it, and injury time winner from Marcus Rashford.
This remarkable prediction caught star defender Victor Lindelöf’s eye.
The Swede sent a message on Twitter asking for more predictions.
Man, you should predict every game 😂 https://t.co/ROKbVAAj4h

Lindelöf himself was superb in Paris, and only has not received so much praise, because his fantastic performance has become par for the course.
He has been so good in 2019 that it is easy to forget how he struggled in his debut season at Old Trafford.
Going one better
It’s great to see players interacting with fans on social media.
One United player went one better. Goalkeeper Joel Pereira was in the stands in Paris.
The Portugal under-21 international shared a video from the away end at the Parc des Princes.

Pereira is currently out on loan at Belgian side Kortrijk, following a spell in Portugal with Vitoria de Setubal.
It’s great to see the commitment from him to take time out to join supporters following the Red Devils chase down another Champions League crown.
