A review of the video recommendations we collected on our official YouTube channel takes us today to one of the most memorable matches of the last decade for our supporters.

Once the team qualified first in their group and then eliminated FC Lokomotiv Moscow on a two-legged encounter, the drawing produced a spectacular Manchester United FC – Athletic Club in the Round of 16 of the Europa League. The first leg at Old Trafford was a genuine display of attacking football by Marcelo Bielsa’s team. Goals from Llorente, De Marcos and Muniain set up a 3-2 draw for the return leg in Bilbao. As well as on the field, the exhibition was also given by our supporters, as more than 8,000 fans travelled to Manchester and showed exemplary behaviour in the British city.

San Mamés had another party in the second leg. A 2-1 win took them through to the next round on a historic run that would finish with the European final for the second time in our history, after the 1977 final against Juventus in Turín.

The line-ups of Manchester United FC – Athletic Club were as follows:

Manchester United FC: 1. De Gea, 3. Evra, 4. Jones, 6. J. Evans, 10. Rooney, 11. Giggs, 12. Smalling, 13. Park Ji-Sung, 14. Hernández, 18. Young and 21. Rafael.
Substitutes: 40. Amos, 5. Ferdinand, 8. Anderson, 16. Carrick, 17. Nani, 19. Welbeck and 20. Fabio.

Athletic Club: 1. Iraizoz, 3. Aurtenetxe, 6. San José, 8. Iturraspe, 9. Llorente, 10. De Marcos, 14. Susaeta, 15. Iraola, 19. Muniain, 21. Ander Herrera and 24. J. Martínez.
Substitutes: 13. Raúl, 2. Toquero, 7. David López, 12. Koikili, 17. Iñigo Pérez, 23. Ekiza and 28. Ibai.
