United 1 - 0 Roma

Brown Rio Pique Silvestre
Park Carrick Hargreaves Anderson Giggs

I knew United were going to qualify since it was going to be hard for Roma to score 2 goals at Old Trafford but when the Ref awarded an inexistent penalty. I thought this was going to be one hell of a long night but De Rossi showed his class by sending the ball skywards, to my relief. I think penalty ball has landed in my back garden. I’ll sell it on Ebay soon.

Roma never really troubled a United side which was resting Rooney, Ronaldo, Scholes and Evra. We were also missing Nani and Vidic while Rio played most of the game injured. Still we managed to win thanks to an amazing diving header by Tevez which met an inch perfect cross by Hargreaves.

United really should have scored more, both Hargreaves and Park had great chances. The former, in my opinion, was the man of the match. He delivered mouth watering crosses with one of them being directed to the back of the net by Tevez. Anyway I can look forward to United vs Barcelona in a fortnight. I really feel this could be our year.

Meanwhile in the Premiership our next match is Vs Arsenal. With the form we’re in we could beat anyone so BRING ‘EM ON!!

Ratings – VDS-7, Brown-7, Rio-7, Pique-6, Silvestre-6, Park-7, Carrick-7, Hargreaves-8, Giggs-7, Tevez-7, Anderson-6. (Neville-6, Rooney-6, O’Shea-7)
