- on Apr 14, 2023
Harry Maguire’s own goal left me with regret.
Manchester United drew 2-2 with Sevilla in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League (UEL) in the 2022-23 season held at Old Trafford in Manchester스포츠토토, England at 4 am (Korean time) on the 14th. The two teams will determine the semi-finalists in the second round.
On this day, Manchester United operated a 4-2-3-1 formation. Anthony Martial was at the forefront, followed by Jadon Sancho, Marcel Sabitzer and Anthony. Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro made up the midfield and the back four were paired with Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Rafael Baran and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. In goal was David de Gea.
The start was good. Manchester United took the lead in the 14th minute. Sabitzer, who received Bruno’s forward pass, shook the net with a left-footed turning shot. Man United, riding the flow, even scored an extra goal. This time, it was mercy. Sabitzer scored without missing Martial’s penetrating pass in the 21st minute.
However, the second half went in the opposite direction. First of all, Baran was injured and Maguire was put in at the start of the second half. Coach Eric ten Haag continued to use 4 additional replacement cards to arrange the stamina of the main players and remove the cumulative warning variable. In the midst of this, Malacia’s own goal came in the 39th minute of the second half.
The mood changed for the worse. In the 42nd minute of the second half, Lisandro sat on the ground alone without any particular collision. Man United, who used all the replacement cards, spent the remaining time with 10 players. In the meantime, Sevilla’s dramatic goal broke out. Youssef En-Nesiri’s header hit Maguire’s head and was sucked into the goal.
In the end, Man Utd only allowed two own goals and missed out on the victory they had captured. In the midst of this, the global media ‘Goal.com’ expressed regret over Maguire’s reflexes. The media expressed regret, saying, “Can Mae Goe-eo’s own goal be said to be his mistake? It’s not. The ball came from close and fast. But he could have reacted faster.”
