    Substitute Anthony Martial proved the difference as Man Utd sunk LASK 2-1 and advanced to the Europa League quarter-finals 7-1 on aggregate.

    LASK came close to opening the scoring in the 10th minute following a scramble from a corner.

    Man Utd failed to adeqautely clear the delivery, resulting in a looping headed efforting bouncing off the crossbar. The ball them broke to Phillipp Wiesinger who narrowly flashed wide with a low strike.

    With an almost unassailable 5-0 lead from the first leg, Utd’s much-changed side unsurprisingly struggled for attacking rhythm.

    Daniel James finally found open ground ahead and duly raced away towards the LASK area, but his attempted cutback to Jesse Lingard was cut out by the hastily retreating defender.

    Goalmouth action remained in desperately short supply as a drab first half mercifully came to an end still 0-0.

    Man Utd started the second half brighter, and Odion Ighalo quickly tested the goalkeeper after wriggling free through sublime footwork inside the box.

    Brandon Williams then galloped into space down the left flank, but his teasing square ball was mere inches ahead of the outstretched legs of both James and Lingard.

    LASK delivered a sucker punch moments later, however, when Wiesinger connected sweetly with a 20-yard effort to curl one past Sergio Romero and into the top corner.

    The lead was short lived, as Lingard levelled the scores moments later with the aid of a deflection.

    Juan Mata sent the Englishmen through on goal, and Lingard appeared to strike the ball at roughly the same time as Wiesinger attempting to make the block. The resulting effort beat the LASK keeper at the near post to make it 1-1.

    Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were brought on from the bench to inject more attacking impetus, and Martial duly delivered on his manager’s hopes.

    The frontman broke into the LASK box after being set free by Mata, and his low effort squirmed through the goalkeeper to make it 2-1.

    The Red Devils advanced 7-1 on aggregate, and set up a tie with FC Copenhagen in the quarter-finals.
