UEL 2019 Manchester United vs Az Alkmaar Highlights – The game against Alkmaar was a tale of two halves. The first half witnessed an unorganised and clumsy Manchester United with almost no coordination between the teammates. AZ Alkmaar passed and moved, cutting and slicing through defence and midfield with ease. The visitors should have deservedly taken the lead in the first half. United was slow on the pitch and gave the ball way too easily. All of this was addressed by Ole during the half time and United was fantastic in the second half.
The halftime talk definitely worked last night for Ole as his team were bright and inventive, full of flair and vision. When United found its flaw, they didn’t take long to end the game. It merely took 11 minutes to score 4 goals. They were deadly and accurate.

Mason Greenwood was the star of the night as he scored two goals and set up the penalty which was later taken and scored by Juan Mata.

The first goal that started the ‘Blitzkrieg’ was finished by Ashley Young scooping the ball from Juan Mata at the far post. After the first goal, Alkmaar was like a house of cards that didn’t take long to fall.
