Rashford hits a hat-trick as Man United beat RB Leipzig

England striker Marcus Rashford was on target thrice as he completed a perfect hat-trick as he came in a substitute against RB Leipzig.

The win was the second one in a row for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a shocking first round victory against PSG.

Youngster Mason Greenwood opened the scoring for the Red Devils in the 21st minute as he calmly finished a Paul Pogba’s pass in the far corner.

Rashford came in a substitute in the 60th minute before he making it four in a span of 16 minutes with his final goal coming in stoppage time.

France international Martial was brought down in the penalty box before he converted his first goal of the competition.

It was a night to remember for Solskjaer as his defense was superb preventing any threats which were also stopped by David de Gea who stood between the post in the night.

Sadly, the match lacked fans to watch their side record a perfect response at home to overturn a past disappointment when they were beaten by Barcelona back in 2019.

The board at Manchester United had however renovated the stadium to provide a social distanced setting meant to accommodate 23,500 fans moving forward.
