Manchester United have secured Europa League progression after a comfortable home win over Partizan Belgrade.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side had won 1-0 away at the Serbian side in their last group game.

They made lighter work of their assignment on home soil on Thursday night with a 3-0 triumph.

Smart Finish

Eighteen-year-old Mason Greenwood, who recently signed a new contract, gave Man United the lead on 21 minutes with a smart finish at the far post after Marcus Rashford had run at the Partizan defence.

Twelve minutes later, Anthony Martial doubled that lead.

The France international skipped past his marker, turned inside and applied another clever finish to make it 2-0.

Rashford made the game safe four minutes after the break when Ashley Young cushioned Juan Mata's searching ball into his path. The England forward finished with aplomb to stretch the lead out of Partizan's reach.

 


The win lifts Man United to the top of Group L and through to the last-32. The Reds are six points clear of Partizan with two games to go and a better head-to-head record.

Earlier tonight, Celtic also advanced to the knockout stages after a dramatic late winner away at Lazio.

Wolves also earned a win with a late winner as Raul Jimenez gave them a 1-0 win over Slovan Bratislava.

The victory puts them second in the group, five points clear of Slovakian opponents with six points to play for.
