Manchester United overcome Liverpool trauma with thrashing of Betis | Europa League

Manchester United overcame, this Thursday, at Old Trafford, Liverpool’s trauma at the expense of Betis de Sevilla, which the English beat 4-1, with goals from Rashford (6′), Antony (52′), Bruno Fernandes (58′) and Weghorst (82′).

A rout that did not spare a small note of drama, when the Spaniards equalized in the first half, in a controversial move, with VAR validating a goal born from a possible arm of Juanmi.

To Ten Hag’s relief, the Brazilian signed from Ajax corrected Ayoze Pérez’s goal (32′), putting the “red devils” on the way to an important success in the Europa League round of 16 duel, which Antony himself could have sealed if he had not missed the fourth goal on two occasions (63 and 80′), both in the face of Claudio Bravo.

Didn’t take advantage of the Brazilian, scored the Dutchman Weghorst, in an insistence that could be worth the qualification of the English. Betis, which had William Carvalho in the starting eleven, now has the thankless task of turning around the tie at Benito Villamarín, where on Sunday it delayed (0-0) Real Madrid in the race for the Spanish title.

Six-goal draw in Berlin

In the first batch of the day, Bayer Leverkusen and Roma secured a two-goal lead going into the second leg.

The Germans beat Ferencvaros from Hungary thanks to goals from Kerem Demirbay (9′) and Edmond Tapsoba (86′).

José Mourinho’s team, buoyed by their triumph over Juventus and their fourth place in Serie A, also scored early against Real Sociedad, through El Shaarawy (13′), confirming the triumph three minutes from 90 minutes, through Marash Kumbulla.

The 23-year-old Albanian central defender, called up in the second half, scored in a brilliant header, in a corner, the goal that gives the Italians the greatest margin for the trip to the Basque Country.

The other two games ended in a draw (3-3), with Union Berlin annulling the advantage of Union Saint-Gilloise, an old friend of Group D, which was part of Sp. Braga. Juranovic, with an irreproachable free kick, equalized close to half-time (42′), after Victor Boniface (28′) put the Belgian team ahead.

The Nigerian scored twice (72′), after Vertessen (58′) had given the visitors a new advantage (1-2), undoing the 2-2 achieved by Robin Knoche (69′), who missed the penalty but saved the face on reload. Closing (89′), Sven Michel avoided a second home defeat against Saint-Gilloise, who won 0-1 in the group stage. The other draw took place in Alvalade: Sporting-Arsenal (2-2).

At night, in addition to Manchester United, Juventus and Sevilla also added home victories. After the defeat in Rome, Juventus beat Freiburg (1-0), with a header from Argentine Di María (53′). The Germans still drew, through Lucas Höler (63′), but the goal was annulled after VAR intervened.

In Andalusia, Jorge Jesus’ Fenerbahçe lasted 56 minutes until Jordán entered, who scored the goal for the Sevillians in the second half. And it was from the bench that the confirmation of Seville’s triumph came, with Erik Lamela making it 2-0, 15 minutes after replacing Bryan Gil.

Shakhtar Donetsk-Feyenoord seemed doomed to end goalless, but Yaroslav Rakitskiy (79′) and Ezequiel Bullaude (88′) decided to color the tie (1-1).
