Manchester United have been handed a massive lifeline by the match officials in the 79th minute of tonight’s crucial Champions League tie against RB Leipzig.
The referee awarded a spot-kick after Mason Greenwood and Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate went shoulder-to-shoulder in a seemingly normal duel.
It was hardly surprising that Konate’s efforts sent Greenwood to the floor, considering he’s the much bigger man, this also came just seconds after the striker pulled the defender back.
Bruno Fernandes stepped up and performed his usual hop-skip technique and he slotted the ball into the bottom corner, sending Leipzig keeper Peter Gulasci the wrong way.
