The Red Devils made the long trip to the Russian city on Tuesday fresh from a resounding 3-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
Rojo started the game at left-back and impressed with an assist for Ander Herrera’s opening goal of the win, whilst De Gea made a string of saves to deny the home side an avenue back into the game.
