The scoreline was 1-0 at the first half before Fernandes doubled the advantage in the 57th minute with the goal initially disallowed by the referee before being awarded by VAR.

“We’re in this competition to win it,” Fernandes said after the match. “My target is scoring the most goals I can and trying to assist my teammates in scoring too. My target is trophies, and winning trophies is more important than scoring goals. Today I think we did everything well. We still have the second leg and a tough game at home; 4-0 is a good result but we have to be aware of what Real Sociedad can do.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was all praise for his Portuguese midfielder.  “He’s good at finding spaces and his technical ability when it comes to chances is top class. Two very good goals,” Solskjaer said. “Bruno always wants to do the next thing correctly. He wants to do the next thing at the best of his ability and that is a very good attribute and quality to have. You never rest on your laurels.”
