To advance to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, Manchester United managed to defeat with a score of 4 goals to 3 against Liverpool in what was one of the best games so far this year. The English classic had two players from the Argentina national team as its main figures with Alejandro Garnacho on the victorious team and Alexis Mac Allister on Liverpool.

Mac Allister in stellar plan in the first half at Old Trafford

After ‘Los Diablos Rojos’ took the lead thanks to a goal from Scott McTominay in the 10th minute From the initial stage, the team led by Jürgen Klopp began to completely dominate the ball and came dangerously close to the rival goal defended by the Cameroonian André Onana.

After several offensive moments, the one who scored the partial tie at 44′ was Liverpool’s number 10. After an offensive attack by defender Jarell Amorin Quansah, the central defender entered the area and threw a cross that Darwin Núñez could receive. The Uruguayan, first-class, assisted Mac Allister, who had no complications and, after controlling the ball, finished with power against the United goal. The ball deflected off Mainoo, which pushed the ball further against the left post of the Manchester goalkeeper, and he managed to score a great goal.

Extremely exciting comeback

After the celebration, those from Anfield did not take their foot off the accelerator and completed the comeback before the end of the first stage. Gómez managed to steal the ball from Bruno Fernándes in the offensive zone for the visit and immediately sent a cross to the Uruguayan attacker.

Núñez looked for Onana’s far post with a fairly powerful shot from his right foot, but the goalkeeper stopped the shot, without imagining for a second that the rebound was going to end up at the feet of Mo Salah who left no doubt when he scored 2-1, demonstrating once again his level and quality on the field of play.

The match offered more emotions and in the final part of it, the 87th minute of the game would arrive and the Brazilian Antony equalized the actions for the locals and forced the extra time to be played, which had electrifying moments in which the match was defined.

At 105 minutes, Harvey Elliott put the lead in Liverpool’s favor. But 7 minutes later, a poor start by the team led by Jürgen Klopp allowed the United ‘Red Devils’ to recover the ball and Marcus Rashford received it inside the area to achieve the long-awaited tie.

Garnacho in a stellar plan

It seemed that the classic was going to be decided by penalties, but Liverpool couldn’t take advantage of a corner in their favor and United’s counterattack was led by the young Argentine Alejandro Garnacho, who could have scored the winning goal, but in a great play he decided to give a pass to Amad Diallo Traore, who with a tight cross shot made it 4-3. It put an end to the England classic confrontation.

Manchester United achieved the long-awaited qualification to the semi-finals of the FA Cup like Chelsea, who were able to defeat Leicester City 4-2; Manchester City won 2-0 against Newcastle; and Coventry City, who beat Wolverhampton 3-2.
