NICOSIA – Manchester United left it late to beat Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League encounter played Thursday night in Cyprus.
Scott McTominay spared United with a 93rd-minute goal in their 1-0 win over Cypriots Omonia at Old Trafford.
Omonia goalkeeper Francis Uzoho made a series of superb saves to frustrate United before the Scottish midfielder fired home in injury time.
“Sometimes you have to be patient. Their goalkeeper was a different class but we created enough chances and in the end we scored deservedly,” McTominay told BT Sport.
“It’s a huge goal because we have to win the group.”
Erik ten Hag’s side stayed three points behind Group E leaders Real Sociedad, who beat ten-man Sheriff Tiraspol 3-0 to celebrate their fourth straight win.
La Real’s rise is guaranteed. They host United on November 3 in a clash that is likely to decide which team advances directly to the last 16.
Each of the eight group runners-up will face a third placed Champions League side in a knockout play-off in February.
