Thursday, 10 March 2016 marked an important day in the history of Europa League.It was the day in which two teams from England, Liverpool and Manchester United, have encountered in an European clash. The match was played at Anfield and it was a joy to watch. The stadium was filled at full capacity and the fans of both teams offered their support, with a plus for Liverpool, their fans dominating the atmosphere. This was also due to their home advantage.
I have to be honest with you and mention that my favourites were the Manchester team, but I can accept the fact that Liverpool played much better last night and they deserved to win in the end with 2-0. First half was definitely dominated by Liverpool, while on the second, the home team played on counter-attack and managed to secure a win at two goals difference.
If I were to mention some players that caught my eye last night they would be Fellaini (he was involved in the most faults), De Gea and Firmino. The second leg at Old Trafford is announced to be an interesting game as Manchester managed to score 5 goals in their last home European game.
