After a season in which he had to settle for participating in the Europa League , Manchester United will play the Champions in the next course. The team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defeated 2-0 Leicester at King Power Stadium with goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard, and finished in third place in the Premier with 66 points.

The Old Trafford box controlled the game in the first minutes of the complement, but the English league scorer, Jamie Vardy, surprised with a header on the post after a stopped ball, when it was a quarter of an hour into the second half .
At 69 ‘, Martial was fouled in the box when he was to be defined against Schmeichel, referee Martin Atkinson charged a penalty and Fernandes did not fail to open the scoring for United.
The locals felt the blow, they could not react and in added time they suffered the expulsion of Jonny Evans for a reckless entry. Lingard sentenced the match after a goalkeeper error on the last play.
Manchester United’s last participation in the Champions League was in the 2018-19 season, when it was eliminated in the last 16 by Paris Saint-Germain, after losing 2-0 in France and winning 3-1 in England.
Leicester needed a victory to get into the highest date of football in the Old Continent. Since he couldn’t do it, he finished the Premier in fifth place with 62 points and will play the Europa League next season.
