The young side made a bright start to the game, but it was one of the senior players that opened the scoring when Lingard drilled his low shot into the bottom right corner.
United took the lead 10 minutes into the game as Lingard takes a heavy first touch but he wasn’t closed down by Astana’s defenders and he drills his low show through the crowd of players into the box and into the bottom corner with the help of a slight deflection.
Astana grew into the game though and had a brilliant chance to equalise, but Rotariu fired wide of the post from close range.
And just minutes after Tahith Chong missed an empty net, Man United conceded – with 55 minutes on the clock, the host pulled level.
Astana went straight down the other end and Murtazayev slots the ball through to Shomko on the left of the box. Bernard couldn’t close him down quickly enough and he fires it into the far bottom corner to level the score – It’s the first goal United have conceded in the Europa League this season.
62 minutes on, Astana took the lead. Rukavina switched out to the right to get onto the ball and he drills his cross into the box.
Bernard gets across to try and block it, but it takes a huge deflection off the defender to sail over Grant and into the back of the net.
