A wonderful morning to all our readers out there, it’s time to check out the results of the football matches played yesterday Wednesday August 5, 2020
Manchester United moved into the quarter-final of the Europa League following a 2-1 win and a 7-1 aggregate victory over LASK last night. The Old Trafford side came from behind thanks to goals from Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial and they are now set to face Copenhagen in a one-leg quarter-final in Cologne, Germany next Monday.
Inter Milan also moved to the next round after beating Getafe 2-0 in a one-leg round-of-16 in Cologne Germany. This is because they didn’t play any of the legs before the coronavirus crisis struck in March. Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen scored on the night putting an end to Getafe’s Europa League campaign. Lukaku has now scored 30 goals for Inter Milan in all competitions this season, becoming the first player to do so for the club since Samuel Eto’o in the 2010/11 season. What a season he’s having!!! Inter will face the winner between Bayer Leverkusen and Rangers in the quarter-final.
Copenhagen and Shakhtar Donetsk also made the quarter-final round after beating Istanbul Basaksehir and Wolfsburg respectively.
