Manchester United secure final qualifying spot
London: Manchester United came from behind to beat Austrian side LASK at Old Trafford, advancing to the quarter-finals of the Europa League 7-1 on aggregate.
Anthony Martial came off the bench to score the winner four minutes from time, collecting Juan Mata’s precise through ball before finishing off his 23rd goal of the season from 10 yards.
Earlier, Mata also provided the assist for Jesse Lingard to score for the second consecutive game.
Having broken his Premier League duck for the season in the very last minute of the final match - at Leicester - it meant Lingard was scoring in successive games for the first time since he did so December 2018.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Some of these lads haven’t played for a while and it showed.
“We won, we gave a debut to a young lad, it’s been a good night. For me it was a good exercise, it’s job done, minutes under the belt and on to Copenhagen.”
Results: FC Copenhagen 3-0 Istanbul Basaksehir, Shakhtar Donestk 3-0 Vfl Wolfsburg, Inter Milan 2-0 Getafe. -
