Match Commentary

92' Benfica gave a good account of themselves and soaked up United second half attacks and scored a superb freekick, but United were not to be denied. Will this be the turning point for United?
92' Another important goal from Ruud van Nistelrooy has helped United to all three points after a dominant if not utterly convincing performance.
92' And that's fulltime.
