Fernandes has a hand in three United goals, Fred hits double and Odion Ighalo scores first goal for club. Bruno Fernandes shone for Manchester United as they defeated Club Brugge 5-0 in their Europa League last-32 second-leg tie, winning 6-1 on aggregate.

It was a breathless start at Old Trafford, with both sides having their chances. Simon Mignolet made three brilliant saves, denying Juan Mata and Fernandes with the latter also have a shot sent just past the post by the goalkeeper's fingertips. At the other end, David Okereke almost caught Harry Maguire out before Mats Rits lifted a shot just over the crossbar.

Bruno Fernandes shone for Manchester United as they thrashed Club Brugge 5-0 in their Europa League last-32 second-leg tie, winning 6-1 on aggregate.

Fernandes scored his second United goal when he converted from the spot in the 27th minute - three minutes and 40 seconds after it was awarded - when Simon Deli stuck his arm out at a Daniel James shot, with VAR intervening to confirm the decision.

The Portugal international was also the starting point for the next two goals, with Odion Ighalo (34) scoring for the first time in a United shirt on his first start before Scott McTominay (41) drove an effort home on his first start since Boxing Day.

It looked like Brugge would see out the second half without conceding, but two goals in the final 11 minutes compounded their misery. Both were scored by Fred too, turning home from a Jesse Lingard cut-back (82) before a thunderous second with the last kick of the game (90+3).
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have now gone seven games unbeaten in all competitions - with only Brugge scoring against them in the first leg during that run - and will discover their next opponents in the Europa League last-16 draw on Friday.
