Manchester United are now through to the Round of 16 of the Champions League after a 2-0 away victory over Villarreal.

Manchester United took the lead in the second half when Fred expertly won possession just outside of Villarreal’s box, which Ronaldo duly capitalised on with a superb, lofted finish over Geronimo Rulli’s head to break the deadlock with 15 minutes to play.

Jadon Sancho, a summer signing from Borussia Dortmund, scored Manchester United’s second and his first for the club.

Ronaldo made English football history after scoring in the 2-0 win over Villarreal.

Ronaldo’s goal made him the first-ever player to score in each of an English club’s first five matches of a single European Cup/Champions League season [excluding qualifiers].

Ronaldo have scored in every of Manchester United’s Champions League games this season. What a player.
