Manchester United showed their superiority over Roma, as the Red Devils defeated the Serie A side 6-2 in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final clash at Old Trafford.

A brace from Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani, as well as goals from Paul Pogba and substitute Mason Greenwood were enough to seal a massive win for Manchester United.

The 6-2 victory has now equalled an impressive record in European competition dating back 57 years. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has become the first team to score six in a European semi-final in almost half a century.

The last time a club in Europe recorded this feat was when Real Madrid put six goals past Zurich in 1964. It’s only the 11th time that the club have scored six in any European competition, having played 393 games in continental tournaments.

Surely, it’s game over, as Roma must beat United at least 4-0 in Rome to make it to the final.
