Match Summary: Manchester United vs RB Leipzig:

Manchester United’s performance has not been so good in the Premier League. They amazed everybody after their win against Paris Saint Germain. RB Leipzig, on the other hand, had already won everybody’s heart last season and were currently at their best form. The match kicked off and both the teams were playing complete possession game. Greenwood scored the first goal of the match for United as Pogba kept him a beautiful assist. This was the only goal of the first half. Leipzig was doing great with keeping possession but was not attacking much.

In the 63rd minute of the game, Marcus Rashford was subbed in and from then on, the match turned into a nightmare for Leipzig. In just 4 minutes, Rashford scored twice for United and gave the team a huge lead to seal the win. A match without a penalty for Manchester United is incomplete. Martial was fouled inside the box by Sabitzer in the 86th minute. Surprisingly, Martial took the penalty himself and even scored. Many people were confused as Rashford could have easily completed his hattrick. However, Rashford cleared all the confusion at injury time by scoring his third goal for a hattrick. The score at full time was 5-0 and this match will definitely affect Leipzig psychologically.
