Europa League – Sheriff Tiraspol – MU – Manchester United wins in Tiraspol thanks to Ronaldo

The sheriff didn’t scare them. The Red Devils easily won in Moldova (0-2) on Thursday night for the second match of the Europa League group. Jadon Sancho immediately made the difference, on the first Mancunian pitch of the match (18th). Cristiano Ronaldo, owner, doubles his bet from the spot (39th). This trembling success puts Manchester United back on track in Group E, a week after the misstep against Real Sociedad.

In other times, this match would have been a trap for Erik ten Hag. But, national mourning obliges, his team is deprived of two championship weekends in a row. The Dutchman was thus able to field a very competitive team in Moldova. Seriously, his players quickly put an end to the sheriff’s hopes, who dreamed of hooking a new big fish, a year after beating Real Madrid in C1.

Victim of an unlikely duo: because Casemiro is chewing


Brilliantly served in the area by Christian Eriksen, Sancho hooked an opponent before placing a shot near the left post (0-1). Not flashy, the Mancunians have never lost control of the game. Shunned in the league but still a starter in C3, Cristiano Ronaldo just touched the square (33rd) before converting a penalty obtained by Diogo Dalot (38th).

Casemiro played for a period

Shrewd in both actions, the Portuguese also took advantage of the generosity of a very naive Moldovan team on defense. More threatened from then on, the Red Devils then let the ball circulate, without really having a chance. The decidedly mediocre spectacle offered in the second act is the least of Ten Hag’s worries: his team remedied the inaugural mistake and returned to the heels of Real Sociedad (2-1 victory over Omonia Nicosia).

Above all, his players confirmed their return to form, one month after a catastrophic start to the season. The low adversity relativizes any firm analysis, but the Batavian technician retains, at least, certainties. Lisandro Martinez and Raphaël Varane kept the barracks behind them. Christian Eriksen justified his confidence in a more remote role and Casemiro contented himself with the interval.

The next Premier League match, at Etihad Stadium against City after the break, will really allow us to judge the level of this picture.
