A 90th minute penalty in favour of the Red Devils sparked controversy and the Brazilian went vocal on social media over the incident.

Brazil global Neymar watched from the stands at Parc des Princes as United claimed a 3-1 win in the second leg of their last-16 tie to progress to the quarter-finals on away goals.

"It's a disgrace. They get four guys who don't understand football to watch a slow-motion replay in front of the TV", Neymar wrote in Portuguese on the social media website.

Neymar was reportedly restrained by club staff as he confronted referee Damir Skomina after the game in a furious tunnel bust-up.

UEFA says it "appointed an ethics and disciplinary Inspector to conduct an investigation" of the social media comments.
