Who was Man of the Match at Real Betis?

Thursday 16 March 2023 21:37

Manchester United won 1-0 at Real Betis to secure a 5-1 aggregate triumph and progress to the Europa League quarter-finals.

The Reds survived a couple of scares before exerting more control on proceedings as the game wore on, hitting the woodwork through Facundo Pellistri, on his first senior start for the club, just before half-time.

After the break, Marcus Rashford spurned two openings before delivering a superb strike from outside the box that flew past keeper Rui Silva.

It proved sufficient to earn victory on the night and it was enough for Marcus to land another star-man prize.

Who gets your vote for United's Man of the Match after the second-leg triumph over Real Betis?

Rashford, our reigning Player of the Month, was named in the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers by Gareth Southgate earlier today, and his trio of goals for the Three Lions at the World Cup finals mean he now has 30 in all competitions for club and country.

His performance in Seville earned him 47 per cent of the vote in the United App, although he was substituted on the hour mark, with Jadon Sancho taking his place.

Casemiro was in second spot (15 per cent), after an assured display in midfield, despite being a booking away from a suspension in Europe. 

Uruguay international Pellistri came third, logging 10 per cent.

This is Marcus's first Man-of-the-Match win since the victory over Leicester City on 19 February, but that was his third on the trot.

He has picked up the accolade 12 times in 2022/23, double the amount of his closest challenger in this regard, Casemiro.
