  • 43

It breaks to Zelenka, who twists and turns Silvestre, but can only direct his shot wide, when perhaps he should have done better. Good chance for the home team.

  • 12
    Giggs (Man. United) misses the target.
    But United show they can break effectively. Again Giggs is the threat, causing the Sparta defence problems with another weaving run. His shot looks to be going wide but is deflected in the area and falls to Van Nistelrooij, who completely misses the ball in front of goal.
