Manchester United vs Real Betis highlights
Manchester United bounced back from a worst defeat by Liverpool to beat Real Betis 4-1 in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.
United tallied their heaviest and worst ever defeat against liverpool since 1931 in losing 7-0 at Anfield on Sunday.
Erik ten Hag gave a boost up to fans and responded to the players to start with same line start thus giving the expected result.
Marcus Rashford had his first goal for United in an early lead with his 26th goal of the season, but Betis levelled the score against the run of play when Ayoze Perez fired into the far corner.
The visitors could even have gone in front before halftime when Perez’s deflected cross came back off the post.
Ayoze Perez’s strike cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s opener to leave the two teams level at the interval, but the Red Devils scored three more in the second period through Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst to claim a strong advantage ahead of the second leg in Seville next week
But it was two of United’s most fiercely criticised stars in recent days who made the difference after the break.
Antony curled a brilliant shot into the top corner before Bruno Fernandes, who Ten Hag named again as captain, headed in Luke Shaw’s corner.
Wout Weghorst then shoot his second goal in 15 appearances for United by pouncing from close range six minutes from time.
Man United head coach Erik ten Hag named the same XI that started the seven-goal loss to Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, with the Dutchman looking for a response from his players in the European affair.
Betis were captained by 41-year-old Joaquin, and there was interestingly no spot in the XI for either leading goalscorer Borja Iglesias or fellow forward Willian Jose, with on-loan Leicester City attacker Perez chosen by head coach Manuel Pellegrini to lead the line.
Weghorst then tested Bravo with a diving header in the ninth minute after meeting an inventive cross from Casemiro, with the home team looking to double their advantage early on.
Weghorst had another opportunity in the 17th minute when the experienced forward met a low cross from Luke Shaw, but his effort was deflected just wide of the near post.
Bravo then had to be quick off his line to prevent Rashford from having the chance to make it 2-0, with the former Manchester City goalkeeper just about doing enough to deny the in-form attacker.
Weghorst had another huge chance in the 27th minute when Antony picked out his teammate inside the box; he somehow missed the crossbar from close range, although the forward was in an offside position.
Bravo then kept out a curling effort from Rashford before Fernandes had one deflected wide of the post, with the 20-time English champions looking dangerous every time that they broke forward.
Casemiro was next to try his luck for the Red Devils, hooking over the crossbar from inside the box after Betis had failed to deal with a corner kick. The act of Real Betis fans gets arrested due to the violence has become
