On Thursday in the Europa League, Scott McTominay scored in the last seconds to earn Manchester United a 1-0 victory over Omonoia Nicosia.
Jadon Sancho, a fellow replacement, sent the ball to McTominay, who then beat Nigerian goalkeeper Francis Uzoho at Old Trafford to score the game-winning goal.
Uzoho made some outstanding stops for the Cypriot team, stopping players like Marcus Rashford and Cristiano Ronaldo. First-half Casemiro’s shot struck the crossbar.
Ronaldo made a rare start for United as he pushes for more playing time in the Premier League after scoring the game-winning goal against Everton on Sunday, his first open-play goal of the year.
Since the appointment of manager Erik ten Hag, who appears to prefer greater movement and pushing from his forwards, Ronaldo has been utilized primarily in Europe this season.
Despite being in control, United was unable to score until McTominay’s goal sealed the victory a week after they had to come from behind to defeat Omonia 2-1.
United raises its point total to nine and falls three points behind Real Sociedad, which defeated Sheriff with 10 men on the field 3-0.
The 25th minute saw the dismissal of Armel Zohouri for receiving a second caution.
Arsenal won its third consecutive Europa League match with a goal from Bukayo Saka, defeating Bod/Glimt 1-0 in Norway to maintain its perfect record.
To score the game-winning goal for the Premier League leaders in the 24th minute, Saka was supplied by Sambi Lokonga.
With nine points from three games, Arsenal leads Group A. The match against PSV Eindhoven was postponed due to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
After defeating Zurich 5-0, PSV came in second.
By thrashing Nantes 4-0 away, Freiburg improved to 4-0, maintaining its perfect record and securing first place in Group G with 12 points.
For the Bundesliga team, Lukas Kübler, Wooyeong Jeong, and replacement Michael Gregoritsch each scored one goal, while Moses Simon added their own goal.
After being held scoreless by Olympiacos, who received the first point, Qaraba is now in second place, five points behind Freiburg. Nantes is still at three.
