Match ends, Manchester United 4, Real Betis 1.
Manchester United responded to their Anfield humiliation in the best manner possible as they overwhelmed Real Betis at Old Trafford.
Marcus Rashford, Antony, Bruno Fernandes and Wout Weghorst were all on the scoresheet as United put themselves in a strong position to reach the last eight when the tie is decided in Seville next week.
No-one will claim one win alone will banish the memory of Sunday’s record 7-0 annihilation by rivals Liverpool in the Premier League.
However, the backing manager Erik ten Hag and his players received from the home supporters suggested recrimination from the stands will not be long lasting.
And Fernandes, condemned by many critics for his display at the weekend, had the satisfaction of not only keeping the captain’s armband but heading home Luke Shaw’s corner from close range after 58 minutes.
The Portuguese ran away to celebrate with his hands to his ears as the United fans chanted ‘Bruno, Bruno’ in his honour.
