Manchester United needed just a second-half cameo from Paul Pogba to seal a quarter-final berth at the cost of a tenacious Milan side willing to frustrate Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s squad.
Milan scored an important away goal in the first leg last week at Old Trafford, and with star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic open, many expected them to ruin United’s party on Thursday night, March 18.
Paul Pogba came off the bench in the second half to score the decisive goal, picking his spot from a tight angle in the left inside channel to give United a 0-1 win and secure a 2-1 aggregate triumph in the tie.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic had Milan’s best opportunity, but Dean Henderson was on point to deny the veteran forward.
United despite facing pressure, comfortably held out at the end to secure their spot in the last eight of the competition.
