Manchester United have taken a huge step toward securing their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League as Erik ten Hag’s men have now claimed a four-goal lead over Real Betis.
United have dominated proceedings for the majority of the game, with the visitors’ equalising goal sparking a 10-minute period of disarray just before half-time.
After the interval, a wonderful curler from Antony restored United’s lead before Bruno Fernandes headed in a third. Now, Wout Weghorst has broken his duck at Old Trafford, as seen below.

After coming ever so close to scoring throughout the game, Weghorst finally captured that elusive goal and you could immediately see how much it meant to him.
The Netherlands international exploded with emotion as he ran to celebrate the goal and it will be especially relieving after having to explain himself on social media following an incident at Anfield.
