Bruno, Cavani and Pogba Run Rampant against Roma; Man Utd on the Verge of European Final AFter Destroying Roma 6-2
Man Utd won 6-2 on the night and scored five goals in the second half, Bruno had two goals as well as Cavani, Pogba scored on a header and Mason Greenwood probably finished off the tie late in the game.
The goals were obviously great but the passing was amazing. Cavani was so good holding the ball up, Pogba was taking players on and finding his teammates at will and Bruno pulled the strings as the playmaker and made smart runs in the box.
Bruno’s first goal was brilliant, the run from Pogba, the one touch pass from Cavani while holding off the defender and a clever finish from Bruno to chip the goalie from close range, the perfect start for united.
Man Utd’s energy levels were evidently high. Their relentless pressing helped create chance after chance for Man Utd.
Another beautiful moment between the three for the second goal, Pogba released Cavani who held the ball up well and found Bruno, he played it back to Cavani and finished smoothly in the top hand corner.
In the 67th minute the cameras panned to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who encouraged his team to keep the pressure high, and they did.
The high press created counter attacking opportunities for Roma but they were so overwhelmed by Man Utd going forward that the two goals they did score are pretty meaningless in the long run.
A tap in from Cavani, a Bruno penalty, Pogba’s header and the best pass of the game from Cavani found Greenwood on the counter to round out the rest of the goals on the night.
This performance has me begging Man Utd re-sign Edison Cavani immediately.
