Manchester United edged closer towards the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League with a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad in the first-leg of the last 32 stage in Turin on Thursday evening.
With the match played in Italy due to Covid-19 restrictions, United went to halftime one goal ahead courtesy of Bruno Fernandes, who went on to complete his brace soon after the interval.
Marcus Rashford netted the third late in the second half while Daniel James rounded off the evening with the final nail in the coffin in the dying stages of the match.

Crvena were reduced to ten players before the end through Milan Rodic after Theo Hernandez restored the Italians the lead from the spot before Milan Pavkov levelled at the death.

However, neither of the aforementioned figures was able to lead their outfit to a first-leg win ahead of next Thursday’s return tie.
