The “Brazilian Duo” led Manchester United to a thrilling come-from-behind victory. The main characters are Fred (30) and Antony (23).
The second leg of the 2022-2023 UEFA Europa League playoffs held at Old Trafford on the morning of the 24th (Korea Standard Time).

Manchester United, which drew 2-2 with Barca in the second leg of the away game, advanced to the round of 16 with a 4-3 aggregate lead. It is the first time in 15 years that Manchester United has caught Barca since the 2008 Champions League semifinals.
Manchester United manager Eric Ten Hach took a 4-2-3-1 tactic, including one-top Bout Weghorst, two-line offense Marcus Rashford-Bruno Fernandez-Jaden Sancho, and defensive midfielders Casemiro and Fred. Luke Shaw, Lysandro Martinez, Raphael Baran and Aaron Wan-Saka formed a four-back, and David De Gea defended the goal.
Coach Xavi Hernandezer’s Barsa faced off in a 4-3-3 formation, with Sergi Roberto-Robert Lewandowski-Hafinha at the forefront, Frank Kesie at the center, Alejandro Valde-Andreas Christensen-Ronald Araujo-Juel Kunde at the back, and Ter Stegen at the goalkeeper.
Manchester United gave up a penalty kick in the 15th minute when Bruno Fernandez grabbed Alejandro Valde with his arm while fighting for the ball, and eventually allowed Lewandowski to score the first goal.
However, Fred scored an equalizer in the second half to take the lead. Fred split the right side of the goal with a strong right-footed shot from the front of the center box with the help of Bruno Fernandez in the second half. Manchester United then wedged the game in the 28th minute of the second half when Antony penetrated the left side of the goal with a left-footed shot. Antony was substituted for Weghhorst after half-time and gave a big present in response to the coach’s expectations 토토추천
