Manchester United put five goals past LASK to secure an emphatic win in the first leg tie of their Europa league Round of 16 clash that was played behind closed doors due to corona virus concerns.
Odion Ighalo’s fantastic strike opened the scoring for Solskjaer boys on the 28th minute after Bruno Fernandez set up the Nigerian who neatly juggled the ball before unleashing a left footed shot past Schlager.
The Red Devils controlled most part of the game and ended the first 45 minute with Ighalo’s goal separating both sides.
The Visitors started brightly in the second half and were rewarded with a goal in the 58 minute by Daniel James who was set up by Ighalo again.
Juan Mata made it three after converting a through ball from Fred.
Mason Greenwood, who replaced Odion Ighalo five minutes before the end of the game compounded more misery for the home team as he scored the fourth goal of the night.
Pereira, who was also introduced late into the game replacing Bruno Fernandez scored the final goal of the night on the 93rd minute to put Manchester United in a commanding position ahead of the second leg tie.
Odion Ighalo now has four goals in three starts for Manchester United.
