UEFA Youth League report: Man Utd v Villarreal

Villarreal dominated possession from the first whistle and soon went in front, with only five minutes on the clock. A through ball was allowed to find Medina and, although his effort came back off a post, Torrents was on hand to supply a simple finish into the unguarded net.

United created a moment of danger when skipper Shola Shoretire fed Marc Jurado out wide but the right-back’s inviting cross evaded everybody in the middle.

The visitors hit the woodwork for a second time, through a cross by Rodrigo Alonso and, again, a yellow shirt was in the right place at the right time, with tall centre-forward Medina converting the rebound. Shoretire picked up a yellow card for a foul and, from the free-kick by Antonio Pacheco, defender Marlone Foubert stretched to divert the ball past Radek Vitek and further extend the lead.

Fernandez did work keeper Filip Jorgensen as the half wore on but a cleverly executed volley by Alonso rubbed salt in the wounds in stoppage time before the break.
