Manchester United vs Celta de Vigo Live Score and Commentary

Manchester United
FT
1 - 1
Celta de Vigo
M. Fellaini 17'
85' F. Roncaglia
...
PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP!

That was a fairly decent 90 odd minutes that sees Manchester United walk away deserved 1-0 winners. Better finishers, and like Ajax the other day, they too would have sewn up their semifinal tie. However, thanks to that precious away goal courtesy some Marcus Rashford magic, Jose Mourinho's men well and truly hold the upper hand. 

Until next time... thanks for reading, Anirudh Menon signing out

Toodle-ooo
...
95' They don't get one as Fellaini thumps a header clear. The visiting fans are in fine voice....
...
94' Valencia holds off Aspas with an outstretched palm and the Spaniard goes down in the theatrical fashion. Freekick Celta and they could do with a good delivery here
...
93' United have batted down the hatches as they invite Celta to hurl crosses into the box. Hernadez obliges, but Romero comes out to claim with calm authority
...
92' Lingard runs into the empty Celta half before drawing a foul from Radoja... this is all going United's way. Till Sisto robs Martial near his own corner flag 
 
...
91' Sisto tries one of those shot-crosses that simply curls away from everybody and everything. Berizzo throws on the kitchen sink as he replaces Mallo with Beauvue
...
90' Sisto wastes a perfectly good opportunity by playing a crossfield ball straight to the feet of Pogba. There, will however, be FIVE MINUTES OF ADDED TIME for Celta to pull something back
...
88' Ashley Young has gone down clutching his hamstring. BUT HE JUST CAME ON! Mourinho must be wondering what curse is currently afflicting his squad - Mourinho throws on the equally fragile Chris Smalling in his stead. 
...
87' Hernandez picks out Hugo Mallo with an incredible slide rule pass but Ashley Young does superbly to ensure Mallo's cross doesn't get past him... and thanks to a fortuitous bounce off Mallo, his good work is rewarded with a goal kick
...
85' OOOO! POGBA TRIES THE AUDACIOUS AS HE CATCHES ALVAREZ OFF HIS LINE AND ATTEMPTS TO CURL ONE IN FROM THE LEFT TOUCHLINE A GOOD THIRTY-FIVE YARDS FROM GOAL. Wasn't awfully far from its target, I must say
...
83' Sisto weaves inside and out as he leaves Valencia in a tizzy before sending in a lovely ball that a diving Guidetti cannot get on target - largely due to brilliant pressure exerted on him by Bailly
...
82' Jozabed tries to find Guidetti in the United box, but the Red defence holds its ground. Fellaini then goes into a typically headless challenge  but escapes a second yellow
...
81' Martial is welcomed to the game with a traditional Mallo cruncher of a tackle and Celta look to move forward as they seek an equaliser
...
80' Here's to hoping that Rashford's limp was just a bit of gamesmanship and nothing more serious. 
...
79' Blind's corner comes to nothing and his second delivery in is headed away by Pablo Hernandez. As the ball rolls out of play, Mourinho asks Rashford to walk off so that Martial may wade his way into the match. A bit of handbags ensue as Rashford limps off in an exaggerated fashion. Aspas and Guidetti, as expected, taking the most exception and the Balaidos joins them in showing their indignation. 
...
77' Pogba picks out Lingard in acres of space and he pokes it forward for Rashford. The goalscorer's run, though, takes him wide where he does well to win a corner. Mourinho now rolls his dice as he takes off the unimpressive Mkhitaryan for Ashley Young. 
...
76' Celta edge possession 51-49 at the moment, but the only column that matters still stands in United's favour
...
75' WOAH! An inadvertent slip from Paul Pogba sets up Lingard for the million-dollar-shot, but he skews his volley well wide. Another very presentable chance that the English youngsters wasted!
...
74' Lingard tries to find the unmistakable figure of Fellaini but the impressive Cabral heads it away. Berizzo has seen enough as he hooks the poor Wass for Fulham Loanee Jozabed. 
...
73' Lingard tries to play in Rashford with a touch that's a bit too cute.... Celta break at pace and Aspas plays one-twos with Guidetti and Castro before slamming a first-time volley just wide! Berizzo's head is in his hands !
...
72' Mkhitaryan motors down the flank and United win a corner. It's taken quickly, too quickly perhaps and Alvarez collects the delivery with the minimum of fuss. 
...
71' As Aditya Rangarajan has just pointed out for the Rashford goal "as he lined the freekick up, the billboard right behind the goal was a FedEx ad that read 'Game-changing delivery'. Prophetic. "  I believe WOOF is the correct technical term

...
70' The tireless Guidetti does well once again to win a corner for his side, this time seeing off the considerable bulk of Antonio Valencia
...
69' Celta try to hit back immediately but Gustavo Cabral's overly ambitious long-ranger curls above Romero's crossbar. 
...
WHAT A FREEKICK! Blind ran over the ball, and Rashford curled one in straight into the side of the net. Delightfully taken that one, and it's a well-deserved lead for United
...
67' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!!! RASHFORD!!!
...
66' Finally Rashford wins a foul as he races past Mallo and the Celta man hauls him down - it's a yellow that's gracefully accepted. 
...
64' End-to-end it may be, but the quality is not of the highest order. Wass' freekick is straight to Romero who does well to release Lingard into the Celta third where he wins a throw in
...
63' Pogba swings in a ball that is too close to Alvarez for Rashford to do anything about it. Guidetti then chases the keepers punt upfield and bullies Bailly into conceding a corner. Very end-to-end stuff here
...
62' Celta win another 50-50 decision in their favour and Mourinho is absolutely furious. Wass tries to move forward, but Bailly intercepts and United counter through Rashford again. Up against Mallo, he can't get past the right back as the Spaniard puts in an excellent challenge. 
...
61' Manchester United break with extreme prejudice with the pace of Rashford. He bears down on goal and with four in support of him elects to smash it all the way into the Atlantic Ocean. Will be Mourinho be lending out his brain again, now?
...
59' Radoja powers into the United half and passes it on to Sisto. The winger cuts in and attempts a curler.... IT DEFLECTS OFF FELLAINI'S LEG AND REQUIRES ROMERO TO MAKE A QUITE SPECTACULAR SAVE! The corner, though, comes to nothing. 
...
57' Roncaglia does well to hold off a charging Rashford and clear Pogba's hopeful dink. A lovely little backheel from Lingard almost opens up the Celta Vigo left flank, but Fellaini lacks the requisite dexterity to make the most of it. 
...
56' Celta pass the ball around United's box with some panache before Hernandez's cute little backheel intended for Mallo is intercepted by Darmian. 
...
55' The ball in is not upto the high standards the young man has set for himself this season, and Celta clear easily. 
...
54' Valencia skins Hernandez and Castro, but ends up settling for a corner. It's just the second of the contest for United and Rashford stands over it. 
...
53' Celta step up the ante once again and Aspas floats into the box but can't pick out a team-mate with his cross. United go on the counter immediately and Lingard is brought down by Cabral. Legally, the referee adjudicates much to the Englishman's annoyance. 
...
52' ASPAS!!! The danger man nips in ahead of Bailly to reach a teasing Wass ball, but can't get the direction his header required to trouble Romero. 
...
51' Valencia ensures Sisto goes nowhere with a thumping, no-nonsense challenge but Celta win back possession and a bout of some incisive passing ensues...
...
50' Pogba finds himself in space at the edge of the box and tries to curl one into the top corner, but it just ends up floating harmlessly high
