Manchester United beat LASK 5-0 as Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo scored a superb opening goal of the game.Manchester United won the first half with Ighalo’s stunner.
The 30-year-old has now scored four goals in three starts United, who are now unbeaten in their last 11 games in all competitions.
However, he will have scored few better, or in a more surreal atmosphere than the opening goal, with the forward collecting Bruno Fernandes’ pass and juggling the ball from right foot to left, before dispatching it into the top left corner, off the underside of the crossbar.
Despite making five changes to the side that started their Manchester derby victory on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side appeared confident and fluent throughout.
Juan Mata, Daniel James and Harry Maguire all had chances to add to their tally, before James strode on to Ighalo’ second-half pass to drive a right foot effort into the bottom left corner.
Fred’s incisive pass allowed Mata to roll in a third, while substitute’s Mason Greenwood and Andreas Pereira, added a fourth and fifth in injury time.
And it was no more than United deserved for a dominant display that maintained their record of having never lost to Austrian opposition in European competition.
