Nigerian forward Paul Onuachu was the hero for Midtjylland as they beat Manchester United 2-1 in the first leg, round of 32 of the Europa League on Thursday.
Memphis Depay gave United the lead in the 37th minute. Pione Sisto restored parity when he struck in the 44th minute.
With 13 minutes remaining, Onuachu, who came on for Martin Pusic, scored the winning goal to give Midtjylland the victory.

Also in action for Midtjylland was Rilwan Hassan, who went off for Marcos Urena on 67 minutes.
It was a big win for the minnows who only became a football club in 1999; the same year United won the treble. The defeat piles a lot of pressure on under fire manager Louis Van Gaal who has now lost 9 in their last 27 matches
United will host Midtjylland at Old Trafford for the reverse fixture next week.
