Manchester United's on-loan defender Diogo Dalot has made a bright start to his career on loan at AC Milan, scoring and providing an assist in the easy home win over Sparta Prague.

The in-form Rossoneri brushed aside their covid-stricken opponents to make it two wins out of two and Dalot's assist was a particular highlight, swerving a cross with the outside of his foot for Rafael Leao to score.

Elsewhere Pizzi's two goals pushed Benfica to victory over Standard Liege in Lisbon, while Joe Willock had an excellent evening for Arsenal in their straightforward win over Dundalk.

And the talented Donyell Malen struck in injury time to give PSV a last-gasp win in Cyprus, with the Dutch forward likely to be one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe next summer.

But hat-trick hero Elvis Manu produced one of the most impactful displays of the round that ultimately counting for nothing, scoring three in Ludogorets' 4-3 loss to LASK.

His three shots on target resulted in three goals in one of the most thrilling matches of the round.
