It was a deadly assault as English giants Manchester United yesterday humiliated Italian side AC Roma 6-2 yesterday during the first leg of the Europa League Semi Final.
The match saw Bruno Fernades and Edison Cavani scoring twice at Old Trafford. United are aiming to get a final under the baby face assassin adter suffering 4 semi final defeats in the past two seasons. Only a second leg defeat of nearly about the same scoreline or more could prevent Ole Gunnar’s side from facing either Villarreal or Arsenal in Gdansk on May 26.
Paul Pogba and Mason Greenwood rounded off the scoring as United became the first team to score six goals in a European semi-final since Real Madrid in 1964.
“Very pleased with the response,” said Solskjaer. “Second half we were very good.”
With United realistically out of the Premier League title race, but also almost certain to secure a top-four finish, Solskjaer named his strongest available side as he aims to end a four-year trophy drought for the Red Devils.
