Marcus Rashford scored his 20th goal of the season and Bruno Fernandes netted a late penalty to put Manchester United in charge of their Europa League quarter-final against Granada.
For the first time in his career, England striker Rashford has scored 20 goals in consecutive seasons as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side clinched a comfortable 2-0 victory over their Spanish rivals at the Nuevo Estadio stadium in Los Carmenes.
At one point, however, the job seemed far from over as THREE key players took reservations to be suspended for the return leg at Old Trafford.
Scott McTominay, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire have all been warned, which means they’re out of the return business next Thursday.
However, a good night turned into a great late in the game as the referee pointed the place for a challenge on Edinson Cavani.
Bruno Fernandes scored the resulting kick – the 11th he converted after 12 attempts as a United player – and the Red Devils are now on the cusp of another semi-final under Solskjaer.
This is breaking news. Further updates will follow shortly.
