It had all the makings of another frustrating night for Manchester United fans...
-Opposition goalkeeper having the game of his life.
-Attackers missing chances all over the place.
-Warning signs at the back due to counter attacks.
But the breakthrough did eventually come, and when it did it was Marcus Rashford who stood up to be counted with a moment of quality. Having been denied a cracker in the first-half due to a fantastic Sergio Alvarez save, Rashford got the better of the Spanish shot-stopper as he caught him off guard and whipped a ball over his head and into the net.
The value of a dummy-runner for a free-kick was clear to see as Daley Blind forced Alvarez to take a step away from the corner Rashford was aiming for.
A ridiculous talent. And such an important player already.
Having bailed the club out in extra-time against Anderlecht in the last round, should United march on and claim the Europa League title it will be largely down to Rashford stepping up and delivering when others around him were failing to get it done.
