  • GOOOAAALLL!!! MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 BENFICA – Manchester United end the opening 45 minutes on top by pinning Benfica in their half. The ball is worked to Nemanja Matic, whose 25-yard strike cannoned off the post and onto the back of the keeper, who unfortunately saw the ball rebound off him into the net for an own goal.

MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 BENFICA – DALEY BLIND DOUBLES MANCHESTER UNITED’S LEAD – After some confusion over who was going to take the penalty, Blind, an unlikely option, stepped up to take it.
