After this match the road to Gdansk for the Red devils has got a whole lot clearer. Shades of 2007. United had a second half to saver coming from a 1-2 half time deficit to win 6-2. Braces from Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes helped win this one. The industriousness of Bruno was on show at Old Trafford. Roma deserve credit as well. They did not come to get a draw here and although they were outplayed for swathes of the match they were by no means negative. We like the fact that the referee was consistent in giving the penalty decisions although both are debatable. So glad for once the officials did much influence on the result.
Bruno was involved in the first 5 goals and Mason Greenwood put the icing on the cake to another memorable European performance. A cynic would say United conceding two goals is a indictment to their defense. True to an extent. Roma are known for overhauling a 4-1 champions league first leg deficit against FC Barcelona in 2018 quarterfinals so United better not rest on their laurels.
