Marcus Rashford’s darting long-range goal gave Manchester United a 1-0 victory at Real Betis on Thursday, moving them into the quarterfinals of the Europa League with a 5-1 overall victory. At a packed Benito Villamarin stadium, the Red Devils and their Andalucian opponents engaged in an entertaining match. Home supporters briefly thought they could make a comeback despite their three-goal deficit.
As the hosts got off to a strong start, Juanmi missed two clear opportunities and Betis’ Joaquin hit the post. However, Rashford’s outstanding strike early in the second half dispelled that notion, and United easily won the game as Betis’ enthusiasm waned. After a few impressive cameos from the substitute, Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag gave winger Facundo Pellistri, 21, his first start for the team in sun-drenched Seville.
Due to sickness, Antony was unable to play, and Argentina’s Alejandro Garnacho has been sidelined for weeks with an ankle injury. The young Uruguayan player got started right away on a strong performance, mishandling a cross from the right as United attempted to knock Betis out of the game right away. When Casemiro tossed Weghorst in that direction, it was too far for him to reach.
When the home team responded, Juanmi was put through on goal, but the former Southampton forward missed the far post with his effort. Betis drew even closer thanks to veteran Joaquin, age 41, who lost a long shot off the post. uanmi was denied by De Gea, who was quick off his mark, despite having another excellent opportunity to bring Betis back into the match.
