In the absence of many players, the shock between Manchester United and AC Milan was a little disappointing this Thursday, in the round of 16 first leg of the Europa League. The Red Devils conceded the draw in the final minutes (1-1).
A small goal each and that’s it, for the shock of the knockout stages of the Europa League between Manchester United and AC Milan (1-1). The Red Devils thought they would come out with a short advantage in the double confrontation, without conceding an opponent’s goal. But the Milanese equalized in the dying moments of the match.
First goal for Diallo
The Mancunian goal is signed by an incoming: the young Amad Diallo, 18, who, five minutes after coming into play in place of Anthony Martial, placed the top of his head to deflect a caviar from Bruno’s pass. Fernandes (50th minute). First Mancunian goal for the former Atalanta player, on … his first shot with the Mancunian tunic. Enough to forget the absences of Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani, injured.
Except that the blow came in the last moments of the meeting, with the goal of the former Lille Simon Kjaer, from the head, against a Dean Henderson in the hand far from being firm. A precious away goal for the Italian club.
Two goals denied for Milan
The Milanese may even have regrets: two goals were denied to them in the first period. A signed Franck Kessié (11th) for a hand on a control; a few minutes earlier scored by Rafael Leao, canceled for offside. Harry Maguire had missed the inevitable against goal in the 38th. See you on Thursday (9 p.m. on RMC Sport) for the round of 16 second leg.
