Rashford sets Champions League record after hat-trick against RB Leipzig

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford came off the bench in the second half and scored a hat-trick as Manchester United demolished RB Leipzig 5-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Rashford became just the fifth player in Champions League history to score a hat-trick as a substitute, with his 27 minutes on the pitch the fewest number played whilst also netting a treble in the competition’s history.

Revealing what Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told him before his hat-trick against RB Leipzig, Rashford told BT Sport: “The manager told us when we came on to try and up the tempo.

“That for us means going forward. There was definitely spaces there.

“We got Bruno and Paul on the ball, Anto running forward and we looked dangerous throughout and that we could score every time we went forward.”
