Last night joy was restored among the red devil fans as they celebrated a win against Zorya Luhansk. The scoring was opened up by the unusual suspect Henrikh Mkhitaryan as he got his first goal of the season ever since his £26m move from Borussia Dortmund. United later sealed their spot with a late goal from Zlatan Ibrahimović.
United are destined to face a much tougher opponent as they finished second to Fenerbache in Group F while all wasn’t good at the St. Mary’s as Southampton were led to an exit of the competition after a frustrating draw against Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
The Saints would have advanced on a goalless draw but a goal from Moar Bar Buzaglo in the 78th minute left the English with only one option, to win.
Virgil van Dijik’s injury time equalizer wasn’t enough despite Maya Yoshida’s wasteful effort in added time that went wide.
