When Bruno Fernandes scored early on against the Roma, we wondered if there could be a repeat of the 7-1 score in 2007.

At half time it was off the table and the Roma took a 2-1 lead.

Then the second half happened. United flashed Roma by five goals and won the game 6-2.

Even if the second leg is left, the draw seems to be over.

In fact, the victory was so emphatic that it set a long-standing European record.

United became the first team since Real Madrid in 1964 to score six goals in a European semi-final.

That’s a 57-year record. United was dominant, and it could have been more.

The players were understandably satisfied with the result and sent messages after the result.

Paul Pogba, Fred, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire were among those who posted the news on social media.

United’s big win raises some interesting team selection decisions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of the second leg.

Rotation against Liverpool was expected this weekend but Solskjaer may now be tempted to create a stronger team and rotate a little more for the return leg against Roma.

United won’t be complacent, Solskjaer is too sensible for that. But with a 4-0 advantage, the team has one foot in the final.
