Manchester United crushed Club Brugge 5-0 in the second leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League, thereby winning the ticket. Are these convincing victories the revival of the Devil or simply a rookie effect?
The UEFA Europa League second leg against Club Brugge marked the fifth appearance of rookie Bruno Fernandes in the red shirt (4 main stones, 1 reserve). In the first leg, rookie No. 18 did not play in the first place, causing United not to have a convincing game. When coming into the field for more than 10 minutes at the end of the match, Bruno also put great pressure on the representative of Belgium. In the second leg at Old Trafford this morning (February 28), the number 18 showed how he changed the red devil.
With home advantage and the arrival of both Mata and Fernandes, Manchester United showed determination to score and solve the game quickly. The appearance of numbers 8 and 18 makes MU’s middle line rotate the ball extremely flexible and smooth in this UEFA Europa League match. These two players often have passes to surrender to the opponent to create conditions for Ighalo or Daniel James to escape. In the first 20 minutes of the match, Solsa’s army imposed the posture and created countless dangerous opportunities. The first was Bruno’s long-range long shot and then the player himself came down, faced Mignolet but could not win.
The role of the rookies continues to be shown. A new summer rookie, Daniel James, had a situation in which he had to enter the penalty area and made a dangerous shot that required the defender to use the ball. This was the turning point of the match when the red card was drawn for Simon Deli and a penalty for United. On the 11m mark, another bright rookie of the Old Trafford team, Bruno, made the 14th successful penalty in the successive opening to the jubilant victory of the Red Devils.
Having a goal to play more than people, the red-shirt team easily overwhelmed and created a control game. With a 7 minute one goal cycle, the first half ended with 2 more goals for MU thanks to the rookie of Ighalo and Scott McTominay. This goal is a motivation for Nigerian recruits as well as a young player who has just returned from an injury.
Controlling nearly 70% of the ball control and launching up to 28 shots, despite actively reducing the speed of the match, the convincing victory of Manchester United was still determined by a double of Fred. Winning 5-0 in the UEFA Europa League second leg and going on with a total score of 6-1, there is nothing to complain about the victory of Solskjaer teacher and students. The adaptation and good effects from the rookies help the Red Man maintain his impressive performance.
2 goals and 1 assist to help Fred win the title of the best player in the game.
Revive from the middle!
A year ago it was seen that Manchester United won consecutively and had excellent results when coach Solskjaer took temporary custody. But the Manucians quickly realized it was a newcomer effect after a long period of bowls and pressure under Jose Mourinho. This season, after the winter transfer window, they are seeing an uplifting Red Devils. But this time, the signal was different, that could be a revival, not simply an effect.
During the last difficult time, Man Utd had difficulties in the middle when they lost Pogba, lost McTominay. Rashford with personal shine helps MU not too tragic. But when the number 10 was lost, the Reds could not find a way to score. And now, when there are new recruits, Solsa’s army is gradually reviving and going into orbit. It is a revival with median inspiration.
There have been 5 matches with the appearance of Bruno Fernandes, the red half of Manchester unbeaten (3 wins, 2 ties), scoring 11 goals and only conceding 1 goal (Bruno reserve). The arrival of the Portuguese star helps MU attack more coherently and be more certain in defense. Without a bridge, Matic and Fred had to do too many tasks, from recovering the ball, escaping pressing to launching attacks. Sometimes it makes these 2 players overload and make mistakes. But since No. 18 at Old Trafford, Fred has shown himself to be a Box – to – box midfielder who is not inferior to anyone, Matic completed the task when he only acted as a collecting anchor rebound. Behind this trilogy is captain Harry Maguire. This framework has created a great certainty for the Red Devils.
In UEFA Europa League February 28 match, Manchester welcomed Scott McTominay’s return. The dynamism, the ability to dispute well and the breakthrough of the Scottish player make United more scary and sure. Although the match became easier for the Old Trafford team, the stability and creativity of the midfield are helping the Red Devils step by step. Remember, United is still in the hands of the brightest star Paul Pogba. If this player comes back and keeps his thirst for dedication, Ole will have an interesting and worthwhile combination. This weekend, this high-flying army will encounter a “not easy” challenge that is Everton. During the reign of Carlo Ancelotti, Everton was competing directly for a place in the UEFA Europa League’s top 5. And the result of this game will probably be the answer to whether Manchester United revive or not.
