However, even without the injured Paul Pogba, it was United who started on the front foot, adopting a more direct style with Romelu Lukaku the target and the Belgium striker was influential in both Rashford goals.
Jesse Lingard has revealed he kept Marcus Rashford's spirits high during his spell out of the Manchester United team by "winding him up".
After a goalless first leg three weeks ago, Lingard acknowledged that his side face a tough task in Spain.
The dressing room joker helped to keep Rashford's spirits up during his first real setback by having a laugh with him and constantly reassuring him of his undoubted quality.
"Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russia."In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".
The Englishman is brilliantly skilled to adapt to any kind of situation or position, and to make the best of it - which his second goal is there to attest to.
