Melbourne Victory 1-0 Manchester United: Ikonomidis gets early breakthrough

Manchester United are behind early in the game following a rapid counter-attack from Melbourne Victory that led to a brilliant finish from Ikonomidis.

Man United started the game knocking the ball at the back in a bid to find a breakthrough against a well-organised Melbourne side.

Melbourne comfortably controlled United’s press and found a way down the right wing for a counter-attack. The Australian side hurt United following a beautiful cross into the area and Ikonomidis hits it past Tom Heaton.

Harry Maguire, who only recovered from an injury failed to intercept the cross due to his lack of pace. Eric Bailly cut out such crosses against Liverpool.
