Betis succumbs in the second half against a great Manchester United

He Betiswho held out with the game tied until the break, succumbed to the biggest punch of the Manchester United in the second part of the first leg of the round of 16 of the Europa Leaguewhich will force him to look for a miracle in the Benito Villamarín (4-1).

Neither pride hurt nor team in depression, Manchester United, four days after receiving a 7-0 defeat against Liverpool, comfortably beat Real Betis (4-1) and aims for the quarterfinals, although they will have to endorse it in Seville next week.

The ‘Red Devils’ were far superior to Betis, who believed in a miracle when Ayoze Pérez matched Marcus Rashford’s first goal. But in the second half, in which Liverpool scored six goals the other day, United grew and with a fantastic Antony finished off the game and leaves the tie very expensive for the Manchester team.

The snow that became the protagonist of the previous one did not anticipate a new cold performance of the United, who came out to bite Betis and to show that Liverpool, however recent it may still be, was just an accident.

With six minutes on the scoreboard, Erik Ten Hag’s team had already had time to have a goal disallowedto Wout Weghorst for offside, and to generate another, legal.

Rashford, after a bad clearance by Luiz Felipe, stepped on the ball, as if it were a futsal match, and nailed it at an angle. A great goal to show why he is the fittest footballer in England.

The English had enough occasions to extend the rent, through Weghorst and Rashford, but after half an hour, Juanmi controlled a ball on the left flank, drove inside and found Ayoze inside the area. The Spaniard, a great connoisseur of the Premier, pocketed the leather and crossed it to De Gea’s far post. Another great goal to replicate Rashford’s.

Y only a stick prevented Betis from winning at half-time at Old Trafford, since an internship from Ayoze, with his center, bounced off Lisandro and went to the wood. De Gea breathed, who had given away the ball in the construction of the play.

The nerves that could anticipate United’s final minutes in the first half did not make an appearance again and Ten Hag’s men gave a coup of authority in the second half, knowing they were favorites in this competition.

The responsibility was assumed Antonywho as soon as he could was located in the front, he placed the ball in his left foot and put it in a square. In the duel of great goals, the Brazilian was already winning, who minutes later, with 3-1 on the scoreboard, missed two heads up that they could sentence the tie.

Before, United took advantage of the passivity of the Verdiblanca defense to make the third. Luke Shaw took a corner and the disputed Bruno Fernandes appeared alone at the near post to head his goal.

The Portuguese could be sent off later, for a kick to Claudio Bravo, but the VAR did not go in to review the possible red card.

Eight minutes from the end, Facundo Pellistri drove the Betis defense crazy, put a pass behind that McTominay finished off, Bravo saved and Weghorst, at will, made the final 4-1.

With the 4-1, Betis only has to hold on to a historic night in Seville to try to have options or at least compete, which was impossible for him at Old Trafford.
