If you weren’t a believer in karma before tonight, you should be now.
In the first half of Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League group stage match against Manchester United, Anthony Martial made the most of a slight tough from Abdou Diallo and fell to the ground in a heap to win the visitors a penalty, which they converted to go up 1-0 at the Parc des Princes.
The first half ended 1-0 but all would be made right in the 55th minute. Neymar Jr. whipped in a corner and instead of clearing the ball, Martial directed it into the back of his own net, making up for his foolishness earlier.

While the goal was definitely welcomed, it’s sad that with Neymar and Kylian Mbappé on the pitch that PSG would go scoreless for that long and needed an own-goal to draw level against an inferior side.
Thomas Tuchel will have some tough questions to answer whether or not PSG pull this one out or not.
