Manchester United faced off against Real Betis in the UEFA Europa League earlier this evening as they hoped to secure a good result on the road. The Red Devils made a solid start to the contest but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Marcus Rashford finally broke the deadlock in the 55th minute as Man United secured a narrow 1-0 win on the night and a 5-1 win on aggregate which ensured their place in the next stages of the Europa League.

Let’s take a look at how each Manchester United player fared during the match against Real Betis.

GK: David de Gea – 7.5/10

The Spanish keeper made a couple of decent saves at the back and earned an important clean sheet on the road.

RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 7/10

He performed his defensive duties well but was a bit inaccurate with his passing.

CB: Harry Maguire – 7.5/10

Maguire cleared the danger when needed and was a strong presence in the air. He will be quite pleased with the clean sheet.

CB: Lisandro Martinez – 7/10

The Argentine sensation earned the ball back a few times and was accurate with his ball distribution.
