(Video) Marcus Rashford scores thunderous strike to give Man United lead vs Real Betis

Manchester United have taken the lead against Real Betis in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie in the Europe League, with red-hot Marcus Rashford continuing his stunning form this season.

Erik ten Hag’s men had a point to prove in this game after the Dutchman named an unchanged side from the team that lost by seven goals to Liverpool last weekend and they came flying out of the blocks at Old Trafford.

Shortly after Wout Weghorst had a smart chested finish disallowed due to offside, Rashford put the finishing touch on a lovely counter-attack, as seen above.

Rashford’s strike is his 26th of the season, taking him ever closer to that elusive 30-goal mark. Rashford has scored 20+ goals in three of the last four seasons but has not reached 30 goals yet.
