Anderlecht vs Manchester United
April 13 2017, Stade Constant Vanden Stock – Brussel.
0-1 Henrikh Mkhitaryan
1-1 Leander Dendoncker
Man Utd spent most of the evening on top, but Leander Dendoncker’s late equaliser keeps the tie in the balance. It looked as if United were going to leave with what seemed to be a relatively comfortable win, but Anderlecht showed great grit and determination to fight back and leave with a well-deserved draw.
The visitors remain the favourites to reach the semi-finals but will be incredibly frustrated with the result, as they easily could have scored two or three more times if they were able to take all of their chances. Leander Dendoncker’s late header salvaged a draw for Anderlecht and changed the complexion of their Europa League quarter-final tie against an idling Manchester United.
The 21-year-old got in front of Matteo Darmian to arrow home an equaliser with the Belgian side’s first effort on goal four minutes from time. Man United had seemed to have subdued the hosts with Henrikh Mkhitaryan tapping in from a tight angle after Marcus Rashford’s Chorth was spilt in the first half. But the Armenian side-footed wide when well placed after the break and Paul Pogba fired into the shins of goalkeeper Martinez Ruben to leave Jose Mourinho’s side vulnerable to the $u(ker punch that Dendoncker landed in style.
