Manchester United vs Rostov. As it happened

Manchester United are through to the Europa League quarter-finals. They dominated most of the game, except for a few minutes at the beginning of the second half in which Rostov put the pressure on. Mata's goal relieved some of it, while a couple of saves from Romero avoided the game going into extra time.

Still level

Not bad from United in the first half. Rostov happy do sit back and defend. As it stands the Red Devils would seal their pass to the quarter-finals, but one goal from the unlikely Russians could end it all.


Great shot from Pogba!

The first leg result was 1-1, which means that a goalless draw would take Mourinho's men through to the Europa League quarter-finals. However, the tie is wide open as away goals could come in to play as we saw yesterday for the blue side of Manchester. Ibrahimovic is elegible for Mourinho and Rooney and Martial are out as expected.

Subs: Goshev, Kireev, Bukharov, Devic


Man Utd: Romero, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo, Valencia, Herrera, Pogba, Blind, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Ibrahimovic
