Manchester United went behind to CSKA in the final match of their Champions League group thanks to a controversial decision by the referee but now, Romelu Lukaku has cancelled out the visitors’ goal with his first goal in twelve matches.
Topping the group on goal difference going into the second half, United need no more than a draw to ensure top spot ahead of the knock out stage and following CSKA’s goal on the stroke of halftime, fans were likely wondering was this going to be their night.
Now they can breathe a little easier as Lukaku, who has been frustrated by smart defending by the Russian side until now, popped up and did this.
Not willing to be outdone by his strike partner, Marcus Rashord got in on the action two minutes later with this.
Barring any comeback heroics by the visitors, United have all but wrapped up the group and can focus their attention on their crucial Premier League fixture with Manchester City.
Having been pivotal in United’s equaliser tonight, fans will lament the fact that Paul Pogba will not be avail for the must-win clash, having been handed a three-match suspension for his sending off last weekend against Arsenal.
