Match Commentary

94' Fergie's boys were poor and there's no denying it. Too many important players underperformed and made too many errors. Although Ronaldo was ineffectual, to his credit he never let his head drop and was full of running and his exaggerated fall won United their penalty. They will have to play better if they are to beat Rangers in their next Champions League outing.
94' 2-1 is bad enough for United but were it not for Howard's brilliant penalty save it could have been worse. Stuttgart deserve the glory, they were tight at the back, quick to tackle in the midfield battles and finished ruthlessly.
94' And that's it, fulltime and what a win for Stuttgart!
