Gasperini said after the game: “I don’t know what more we can do. We still have faith, but in this environment it seems to rekindle them.”
“We feel that we are holding the victory in our hands. We were almost 3-1 up but their goalkeeper made two incredible saves and then 2-2 came.
Gasperini added that the team’s lack of several players. Including Rafael Toloi, Hans Hatebur, Matteo Pescina and Robin Gosens has had little impact. in this game
“We could have lasted longer if more players were available. But we conceded three goals in a really difficult situation.”
The Spaniard saved brilliantly from Duvan Zapata and Ruslan Malinovskyi, and the hosts were level just four minutes later when Maguire swept home a cross from Fernandes.
There was only one winner from then on — and the third goal duly arrived when Ronaldo rose high to drive home a trademark header for his 137th Champions League goal and raise the roof at Old Trafford.
