The only blot on United’s night is that Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay were booked for the home return next week on Thursday.
Should United reach the semi-final battle at the expense of Granada, which finished second behind PSV earlier this season in the group stage, the team will take on Ajax or AS Roma. That game ended in a 2-1 victory for the Italian squad on Thursday-evening in Amsterdam.
Slavia Prague in ecstasy
In London, Arsenal had been looking for a goal against Slavia Prague for a long time, but only found it in the eightieth minute, after Willian shot a free kick against the post. Nicolas Pépé broke through and punched the ball over Slavia goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar, who played with a helmet and protection in front of his nose after a previous head injury.
Arsenal seemed to be taking the win, but in the fourth minute of the extra time, Tomás Holes brought the Czech team into ecstasy with a striking header from a corner and to a good starting position next week.
