Cristiano Ronaldo scored as Manchester United returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win away to Moldova’s Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League groups.

Erik ten Hag wanted to see a response after losing to Real Sociedad last week and fielded a strong team. The Red Devils’ play was not that impressive, but their class was enough to achieve a comfortable success.

Jaden Sancho opened and then Ronaldo scored his first goal of the campaign from the penalty spot, now just shy of the 700th goal of his club career.

To a large extent, everything was decided before the break, when the visitors scored twice to leave no doubt that they would win.

First, Cristiano Ronaldo claimed a penalty after taking on Martinez, but was brought down by Kiki after he was slow to take the shot.

Just 2 minutes later – in the 17th, Man United scored. Christian Eriksen found Jaden Sancho in a good position in the penalty area, who converted with a precise shot and help from the crossbar.

The hosts responded with a dangerous strike from Atiemwen, but United continued to attack. Ronaldo fired over the bar and then the home keeper made a poor clearance and Anthony found Sancho in a clear position. The goal looked certain after the striker fired, but Sheriff’s captain Radelic cleared off the line.

As with the first goal, however, the visitors scored a goal almost immediately. Crozet unnecessarily fouled Dalot and Ronaldo scored the penalty to open his account for the season. With this result came the break.

Soon after, Fernandez shot accurately, but into the goalkeeper’s hands. The guests played calmly, controlling the match. Ronaldo, on the other hand, was looking to score goal #700 in his club career, but Radelic intervened decisively.

Badolo had the first shot on target for Sheriff in the 75th minute, but De Gea made the save. In the end there were no more goals until the end and United claimed their first 3 points. So is Sheriff.

Man United squad: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez (90 Maguire), Malacia, McTominy (46 Casemiro), Eriksen, Anthony (90 Garnacho), Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo (82 Elanga)
