[Video Goals] Rostov 1-1 Man Utd: Mkhitaryan Scores Vital Away Goal For Utd
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has put Manchester United in control of their Europa League last-16 tie after they came away with a 1-1 draw from the first leg at FC Rostov
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has put Manchester United in control of their Europa League last-16 tie after they came away with a 1-1 draw from the first leg at FC Rostov this evening.
Jose Mourinho clearly has concerns over the state of the pitch as he switched formation to a back three and United spent the majority of the game playing a long-ball game.
The tactic worked to perfection midway through the first half as a direct pass found Marouane Fellaini who did well to chest down before finding Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Swede cooly cut back for Mkhitaryan to open the scoring from close range in the 35th minute.
There wasn’t a lot of quality football on display from either side as they struggled to find a rhythm on a terrible surface and clear cut chances were at a premium.
Rostov eventually found an equaliser shortly after half time as Molosh found Burharov with a fine ball over the top and the striker buried past Sergio Romero for 1-1 in the 53rd minute.
Neither side could find a winner so United take home a valuable 1-1 draw which puts them firmly in control of the tie as Mourinho will be confident of getting the job finished at Old Trafford.
