Rashford, Lukaku Help Man United Defeat CSKA Moscow and Win Group A

Share

So much for the often discussed Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford goal droughts! The former found his form again, providing the equalizer in the 64′ against CSKA Moscow at home tonight in UEFA Champions League group stage action. Then two minutes later, Marcus Rashford scored the game winner, giving the Red Devils a 2-1 victory which earned them the status of Group A victors.

They are now through to the knockout round for the first time since 2014, where they were eliminated by Bayern Munich in the quarterfinal.

Here is the footage of both goals, beginning with the strike from Lukaku which drew the home side level:

And now the go ahead from Rashford:

In six group stage games, United won five and scored 12 goals. Their only setback came in the road tie at FC Basel, by a score of 1-0 on November 22.

They’ll now await the results of their round of 16 draw; which UEFA will hold on Monday.
