Manchester United rock PSG, plus Football Leaks – Football Weekly Extra

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the last couple of days of football, starting with Manchester United’s remarkable comeback in the Champions League, as a last-minute VAR-awarded penalty turned the tie from a loss to an away-goals win in the blink of an eye at PSG.

We speak to Dutch football expert Bart Vlietstra about Ajax’s astonishing 4-1 win at Real Madrid, and what the future holds for the young talent. Spurs are afforded safe passage to the quarter-finals by an impotent Borussia Dortmund, while Porto knock out last season’s semi-finalists Roma with a 117th-minute penalty – again given by VAR.

We talk to Christoph Winterbach of Der Spiegel about the latest allegations published via Football Leaks, we round up the week’s domestic football action and look ahead to Europa League ties and a full round of Premier League fixtures this weekend.

Back on Monday!
