  • 90
    Kuranyi (Stuttgart) has a shot blocked.
    Kuranyi holds the ball up-front, teasing Silvestre and waiting for his players to join him before shooting. His shot is low and powerful, and keeps Howard on his toes right up until the end.
  • 90
    Forlán (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    From Ronaldo's corner, the striker takes another, this time it is blocked firmly by Stuttgart who are defending solidly.

    Meissner (in) - Hleb (out) (Stuttgart)
  • 87
    Ronaldo (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Heldt (Stuttgart).
    Kuranyi is still defending from the front, going back to collect the ball and still outwitting the United players.

    The Stuttgart captain is hanging off the goalkeeper and blocking his sight.

    Heldt (Stuttgart) takes the corner.
  • Substitution
    82
    Forlán (in) - Ferdinand (out) (Man. United)
    The Uruguayan comes on up front as the central defender goes off, with Gary Neville slipping into his position and immediately concedes a sloppy corner.
  • Yellow Card
    81
    Tiffert (Stuttgart) is cautioned by the referee.
  • 81
    Tiffert (Stuttgart) is penalised for a foul on Fortune (Man. United).
  • 80
    Heldt (Stuttgart) takes the corner.
  • Penalty
    80
    Fernando Meira (Stuttgart) missed the penalty saved by the goalkeeper.
    Howard the hero. Meira had the perfect chance to effectively end the contest. But the American goalkeeper was off his line like a bullet and dived the right way to block the shot. This could be a pivotal moment.
  • 78
    Ferdinand (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Kuranyi (Stuttgart).
  • 77
    Fortune (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Tiffert (Stuttgart).

  • 73
    Soldo (Stuttgart) misses the target.
  • 73
    Heldt (Stuttgart) takes the corner.
    A mistake by Ferdinand pits four attackers against only three defenders. Gleb is unable to provide the right service and the ball goes out for a corner. Stuttgart look the most likely to score again.
  • Substitution
    73
    Tiffert (in) - Vranješ (out) (Stuttgart)
  • 72
    Heldt (Stuttgart) takes the corner.
    Kuranyi almost gets between the centre-backs Ferdinand and Silvestre but, as he goes to shoot, Silvestre just gets a toe to the ball and knocks it out for a corner.
  • Substitution
    71
    Gerber (in) - Lahm (out) (Stuttgart)
    A straight swap as the 18-year old Lahm leaves the left-back position.
  • 70
    Szabics (Stuttgart) misses the target.
  • 68
    Hinkel (Stuttgart) is penalised for a foul on Silvestre (Man. United).
  • Goal
    67
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) scores from the penalty spot.
    The Dutchman shrugs off the burden of not having scored from the penalty spot in the past three games to power the ball to the right-hand side of Hildebrand. Sir Alex Ferguson's substitution has paid off, as Giggs moved over to the left hand side with the arrival of Quinton Fortune.
  • 66
    Hildebrand (Stuttgart) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 66
    Giggs (Man. United) hits the post.
    The Welsh winger, who has moved over to the left-hand side following the substitution, hits a tantalising ball diagonally across the goal. Van Nistelrooij cannot get a touch to it, nor can Keane and the ball trickles round the post. Ronaldo and Hildebrand both pounce on it and the referee adjudges the goalkeeper to have fouled, giving the visitors a penalty and a way back into the game.
  • Substitution
    65
    Fortune (in) - O'Shea (out) (Man. United)
    It is a straight swap at left-back.

    G. Neville (Man. United) is cautioned by the referee.
  • 64
    G. Neville (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Hleb (Stuttgart).
  • 63
    Ronaldo (Man. United) misses the target.
  • 60
    P. Neville (Man. United) misses the target.
    United, to their credit, are piling on the pressure but Neville's effort wide is indicative of their problems. Stuttgart look like they could get another as every time United lose possession, they go rampaging on the break.

  • 59
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has an effort on goal.

  • Goal
    52
    Kuranyi (Stuttgart) scores!
    Stuttgart have rocked United twice in a matter of minutes, with Kuranyi scoring his second goal in the Champions League in as many games. This time, his strike partner Szabics receives the ball from Vranješ, threads it through to Kuranyi and, with no defender marking the tall Brazilian-born striker, he has a clear run on goal, chipping the ball and riding Howard's challenge as he goes.
  • Goal
    50
    Szabics (Stuttgart) scores!
    Stuttgart go ahead after five minutes of concerted pressure. The ball is lofted into Lahm and Gary Neville commits himself to challenging the header. He totally misses his challenge and Lahm knocks it on for Szabics. He slips past Ferdinand, who stumbles and then from 20 metres away, the Hungarian striker coolly releases a shot past the right arm of a helpless Howard.
  • 48
    Soldo (Stuttgart) misses the target.
  • 47
    Heldt (Stuttgart) delivers the corner.
  • 47
    Heldt (Stuttgart) delivers the corner.

    Another shaky moment for United as Howard fails to deal with this corner as well but Kuranyi, who was relatively quiet in the first half, shoots well wide.
  • 47
    Scholes (Man. United) makes a save.
  • 47

  • 45
    Szabics (Stuttgart) has an effort on goal.
  • 42
    Giggs (Man. United) delivers the corner.
    Gary Neville passes the ball to Ronaldo in the box. The young Portuguese winger looks nervous and mis-times it, allowing Bordon to knock it out for a corner. Ronaldo goes to take it, but the more experienced Giggs takes over.
  • 40
    G. Neville (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Lahm (Stuttgart).
  • 36

  • 34
    Hinkel (Stuttgart) misses the target.
    Lahm takes the free-kick, and the ball curls in and out again, to Hinkel. He hits it first time, but Silvestre narrows his angle and the resulting ball goes wide.
  • 33
    P. Neville (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Lahm (Stuttgart).
  • 29
    Vranješ (Stuttgart) misses the target.
  • 26
    Hleb (Stuttgart) misses the target.
    Howard's goal kick goes straight back to Gleb, who hits a powerful left-footed shot wide of the post. Still, Stuttgart have posed their first questions of the United defence.
  • 23
    Szabics (Stuttgart) misses the target.
    The best scoring chance so far for either team. The Hungarian striker has time to set himself up to receive Hleb's pinpoint cross, but he heads it over the crossbar. He is Stuttgart's top striker so far this season, with four goals to his name - all scored away from home.
  • 20
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) misses the target.
  • 18
    Hildebrand (Stuttgart) makes a save.
  • 18
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has an effort on goal.
    The Portuguese teenager takes the free-kick, but the kick is neither powerful enough to test the goalkeeper or the players fast enough to get onto the end of it. Goal kick.
  • 18
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the free-kick.
  • 18
    Fernando Meira (Stuttgart) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Giggs (Man. United).

  • 8
    Scholes (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Bordon (Stuttgart).
  • 6
    Heldt (Stuttgart) takes the corner.
    Nothing comes off the Horst Heldt corner. The German is naturally a left-footed player but he curls the ball directly to Tim Howard.

    Vranješ (Stuttgart) misses the target.
  • 5
    Heldt (Stuttgart) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
