United 2 - 1 Wolfsburg

O'Shea Rio Vidic Evra
Valencia(Fletcher) Carrick Anderson Giggs
Owen(Berbatov) Rooney

United won their second match of this years' Champions League thanks to a fightback lead, once again, by the evergreen Giggs. United dominated the game and played eye pleasing football throughout the whole match especially after Berbatov's introduction. However Wolfsburg managed to get their noses in front with a good goal by a 6foot fiver who was challenged, in the air, by our Evra. It is needless to say that Dzeko had no competition at all to get to the ball.

This goal seemed to have triggered the United side and a couple of minutes after Wolfsburg's goal, Giggsy saw his deflected freekick get to the back of the net. It was all about United from now on and a beautifully built attack lead to United's second goal scored by Carrick. Giggs was the assist to this goal! I was really getting worried about Carrick lately. His morale seemed to have hit rock bottom and only a good performance could re-boost his confidence. Luckily he had a good game today and scored a great goal. Just what he needed!

While Rooney had a game off today, Berbatov was on fire. His moves were jaw dropping while his first time football was nothing short of world class. I usually criticize our Bulgarian but he didn't put a foot wrong today. Meanwhile Owen got injured and I hope it's nothing serious because we desperately need a back up striker.

All in all I'm pleased with today's match. Although United spurned a couple of chances, I'm pleased with our player's response to Wolfsburg's goal. Next Sunderland. 3-0 is my prediction.
