Anthony fires Man Utd to Europa league round of 16


Manchester United would have to thank Anthony for striking the winner for the team against Barcelona to book their Europa league round of 16 ticket by 4-3 on aggregate.

The first leg of the knockout round play off clash had ended on a 2-2 draw last week with both teams coming into the second leg with all high hopes.

Meanwhile, the Red devils had to come from behind to steal the show at Old Trafford as Erik Ten Hag boys proved that the stand remained their fortress.

Robert Lewandowski scored a penalty in the 17th minute to push the visitors to the lead after Bruno Fernandes held Balde in the box.

The hosts came back into the second half with a bang and their resolve reared its head when Fred sliced home an equalizer to bring the game to level.

Substitute Antony completed the turnaround for Erik ten Hag’s side in the 73rd minutes to send their fans to a wild jubilation.

More to the result, it was Manchester United  first victory over Barca since the narrow 1-0 win in the Champions League semi-final second leg in April 2008
