Fresh off a productive Premier League campaign, Manchester United returned to Europa League play at Old Trafford with a comfortable five-goal edge over LASK. After allowing a second-half goal from LASK fullback Philipp Wiesinger, the English side quickly replied with a goal of their own scored by Jesse Lingard — ironically it was Wiesinger playing Lingard onside that allowed the goal to happen. They later doubled their goal tally on the evening when super sub Anthony Martial came in for some quick action and scored just moments later.


Meanwhile, in Germany, Inter Milan and Getafe squared off in the only one-legged affair of the day. The two sides were unable to play their first leg in March when the sports leagues around the world paused. The Italian squad was able to take the win with fellow Premier League outcasts Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen each getting on the scoresheet.


As for the earlier games, Shakhtar Donetsk earned a spot in the quarterfinals when a late surge of three goals further cemented their aggregate lead over opponents Wolfsburg. Copenhagen made club history with their win over Istanbul, earning the club’s first-ever quarterfinal appearance in the Europa League.
