Next Wednesday, the return to Old Trafford. In the other tie on Tuesday they also took advantage of their visit to Southampton (0-1).

United, with Casemiro after his suspension against Arsenal in the Premier, has a ’10’ habit that will reach the Europa League playoff against Barça in excellent condition. Marcus Rashford continued his great run after returning from the World Cup with a superb goal in the 5th minute.

United came out very strong, playing well in attack, and Antony immediately made it 0-2 with a screw from Antony that hit the post.

VAR prevents Forest from equalizing

Steve Cooper’s team, with intense and electric football, lost respect to United with Morgan Gibbs-White and newcomer Gustavo Scarpa, a very interesting Brazilian, as banners and equalized in their first arrival but VAR ruled that Sam Surridge received a millimeter offside (22 ‘).

David De Gea also saved United moments later by saving a volley from Scarpa (26′).

Before the break, Erik ten Hag’s men dealt a fatal blow to Forest. Casemiro found Antony on the balcony of the area, the Brazilian’s shot was deflected by Hennessey and Weghorst, attentive to the rebound, referred to a good shot from outside (45′).

In the second half Nottingham tried the miracle but a lack of success in the final meters prevented them from getting into the tie and they gradually lost their momentum. In contrast, Cristian Eriksen made it 0-3 with a rare crosshead shot (53′).

Rashford, with discomfort
