Show and double of Casemiro

Manchester United dances to the sound of Carlos Henrique Casemiro. The Brazilian midfielder of the Red Devils He showed in the pass of the mancunianos to the next round of the FA Cup that it is much more than tickets and defensive work. The former Real Madrid player also knows how to define with class, as in the 0-1 draw for the Old Trafford team, and sign braces, like the one he achieved in the second half of the match against Paul Ince’s Reading. The second of his career after the one he got against Sevilla in 2019/2020. A Manchester United in which both Fred and Antony also speak Brazilian very well. Not seeing Marcus Rashford score in a Los Angeles game Red Devils It has become news, but it is that Erik ten Hag’s pupils have become an almost perfect machine. And it is that the Mancunian team is approaching the fundamental stretch of the season playing well and, above all, winning well.

Offside yes, penalty no

Although Reading was very compact from the start of the game, the locals felt and were superior during all 45 minutes. A first half from which Erik ten Hag’s pupils left empty, still deserving more than their rival. And that they managed to beat him, but the VAR did not allow it. Although Paul Ince’s team planted all their lines in their own field to hinder circulation, the Mancunians showed they had infinite resources to put the visiting goalkeeper to the test. On the wings, from set pieces and, above all, with shots from outside the area, Manchester United did not stop trying to open the scoring. Antony, the most insistent of all, as well as Christian Eriksen and Bruno Fernandes tried their luck, but all their attempts went awry.

Los Red Devils they were close to the goal, and they got it, but it didn’t go up on the scoreboard. Sir Alex Ferguson rose from his little doze in the Old Trafford stands just in time to celebrate Marcus Rashford’s goalalthough the illegal position of Wout Weghorst, prior to the provisional 1-0 of the English striker, ended up invalidating it. The new Dutch striker of the Red Devils extended a ball for the local ’10’ to finish off at the far post, but it came from offside. In the same way that the VAR prevented the Mancunians’ first goal, the VOR referees did not notify the field referee for a possible penalty on Casemiro five minutes before the end of the first half. Enough time for David De Gea to also leave his mark on the game with a momentous intervention at 47 ′ after a serious mistake by Tyrell Malacia inside the area.


All the goals that Manchester United fans sang but did not celebrate had been saved by Erik ten Hag’s charges for the second half. Of course, with a completely unexpected protagonist. At least because of the way the goals came. And it is that Casemiro dressed as Marcus Rashford, up to two times, to make the Old Trafford team shine. The English striker himself, who was left without what would have been his 10th consecutive game seeing the goal, would have signed the 1-0 definition, this time yes, for the locals. Antony filtered a spectacular pass so that his compatriot, who arrived from the second row, chipped the ball over the Reading goalkeeper in the 54th minute. A very classy definition. With everything and with that, the ex of Real Madrid still would have time to sign a doublet. The threaded shot that Casemiro executed from the edge touched just enough of a visiting defender to make it unreachable for Joe Lumley. Two goals from Manchester United, two goals from Casemiro. The Brazilian smiled widely..

But the Manchester United show had only just begun. Minutes after Andy Carroll ejected himself with an excessive tackle on Casemiro himself, which cost him his second yellow card, Fred joined the Brazilian clan on the magical night at Old Trafford. After 67 minutes of the game, the midfielder of the Red Devils appeared at the near post after a corner kick to make it 0-3 with a fabulous heel shot. Double from Casemiro, assist from Antony, and goal and assist from Fred. Mancunian samba. A party that partly spoiled the goal, a great goal, from Amadou Mbengue. The Reading player entered from behind in a corner to finish off a header into the back of the nets with 20 minutes remaining. Although in reality, they could hardly spoil those of Paul Ince. Beyond the frustration of Antony, whom Casemiro urged for his assistance in the 0-1 but left the match without seeing the goal, the second part of the Mancunians had been round. Perfect to certify the classification.
