    Juninho (Lyon) delivers the corner.
  • Substitution
    90+1
    Fortune (in) - Keane (out) (Man. United)

    Heinze (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Essien (Lyon).
  • 88
    Malouda (Lyon) misses the target.
    Late pressure from Lyon, as the substitutes test the tiring home defence. First Malouda shoots wastefully, before Bergougnoux is subjected to a last-ditch challenge from Ferdinand.

    Diatta (Lyon) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Smith (Man. United).
  • 83

    M. Diarra (Lyon) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Smith (Man. United).
    Alan Smith, who has scored six times this season - his first for United - despite limited chances to play from the start, is pulled down near the edge of the penalty area.
  • 81
    Juninho (Lyon) delivers the corner.
  • 81
    Bergougnoux (Lyon) misses the target.
    For the first time in ten minutes Lyon string several purposeful passes together, worrying the United defence. The young substitute is given the chance to shoot after play from Juninho and Essien - who have covered every blade of grass between them - but the Lyon-born player's shot is deflected wide.
  • 80
    M. Diarra (Lyon) has a shot blocked.
  • 78
    Réveillère (Lyon) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    More skills from the United man, bamboozling Essien and then Réveillère before the defender pulls him back.
  • 77
    Bergougnoux (Lyon) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Heinze (Man. United).
  • 75
    Juninho (Lyon) misses the target.

  • Substitution
    72
    Malouda (in) - Nilmar (out) (Lyon)
    Le Guen makes a double change - striker Nilmar making way for Malouda, who won his first cap for France in the 0-0 draw with Poland last week.
  • Substitution
    71
    D. Fletcher (in) - Van Nistelrooy (out) (Man. United)
    The young Scottish international makes his eleventh appearance for United in Europe.
  • 71
    Keane (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on Nilmar (Lyon).
    A loose pass from Scholes forces the United captain to live dangerously, the Irishman bringing down the Lyon forward in a promising position.
  • 69
    Puydebois (Lyon) makes a save.
  • 69
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has an effort on goal.
    The home side are stroking the ball with increasing confidence, passing and moving with the fluency that Lyon showed in the first half. Scholes sets up Ronaldo, who chooses to shoot from an angle, but his powerful effort is beaten away by the Lyon goalkeeper Puydebois, who is making only his second European appearance for Lyon tonight.
  • Yellow Card
    65
    Keane (Man. United) is booked.
    After a lunge by the United captain, the Irishman reacts slightly and is cautioned by the referee.

    Keane (Man. United) gives away a free-kick for a challenge on M. Diarra (Lyon).
  • 64
    Scholes (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    But the young Portuguese player makes amends almost immediately, scooping the ball over two defenders towards Heinze, supporting from left-back. His cross is cleared, but the ball falls onto the right boot of Scholes, who volleys first-time but his shot is blocked.
  • 64
    Frau (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 63
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the corner.
    Disappointing set-play from Ronaldo, his kick failing to beat the first defender.
  • 62
    Diatta (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Van Nistelrooy (Man. United).
  • Substitution
    60
    Wiltord (in) - Govou (out) (Lyon)
    The ex-Arsenal FC man takes to the field to muted applause from United fans. Le Geun looks to re-shuffle his team, Wiltord giving his eleven a more attacking look.
  • 60
    Govou (Lyon) misses the target.
  • 58
    Rooney (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on M. Diarra (Lyon).
  • 58
    Essien (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Scholes (Man. United).
  • 57
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) misses the target.
    A formidable attack from the home side. Rooney and Van Nistelrooij combine effectively for the first time, the young Englishman picking out his collegue with a sublime pass over the head of Réveillère. The Dutchman controls the ball impeccably, keeping it up before floating a lob over Puydebois towards the far top corner. Only the upright stops what would have been a fantastic goal, the ball glancing off the post.
  • 55
    Nilmar (Lyon) misses the target.
  • 54
    Smith (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Juninho (Lyon).
  • Goal
    53
    Van Nistelrooy (Man. United) scores!
    Ferdinand collects a loose ball from the corner, but looks to be well marshalled near the corner flag. He manages to dig the ball out, however, standing a cross up over the goalkeeper to the back post. Van Nistelrooij climbs above his marker to nod the ball home from two metres, and restore United's lead.
  • 52
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the corner.
  • 52
    Puydebois (Lyon) makes a save.
  • 52
    Rooney (Man. United) has an effort on goal.
    Brown's fresh legs again are not afraid to gallop forward. The Englishman skips past two defenders on his way toward goal, before playing a slide rule pass into Rooney, who clips the ball past the goalkeeper, before it is cleared off the line
  • 51
    Juninho (Lyon) takes the corner.
  • 51
    Essien (Lyon) misses the target.
    Another clever passage of play from the visitors, who are not afraid to keep possession until a chance presents itself. Essien and Juninho exchange passes to create space before the Ghanaian player shoots wide, thanks to a deflection.
  • 50
    Keane (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Essien (Lyon).
  • 49
    Smith (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Berthod (Lyon).
  • 48
    Keane (Man. United) takes the corner.
  • 48
    Scholes (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
  • 47
    Berthod (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    Both players shoulder-to-shoulder deep in the Lyon half, before Ronaldo is felled.
  • 46
    Brown (Man. United) misses the target.
    And immediately the substitute impacts on the game, the young defender fooling Diarra on the by-line before flashing a shot across the goal and across the diving Puydebois.
  • Substitution
    46
    Brown (in) - G. Neville (out) (Man. United)
    United's goalscorer is replaced at half-time, a straight swap at rightback for Brown.
  • Start Time
    The second half begins.
  • End Time
    The referee blows for half-time.
  • 45
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the corner.
  • Goal
    40
    M. Diarra (Lyon) scores!
    And just as the French side fail to trouble United again despite some nice play, Diarra shoots speculatively from distance, only for the ball to be spilled by Carroll, the United goalkeeper watching as the ball squirms over the line.
  • 40
    Essien (Lyon) misses the target.
  • 39
    Heinze (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Govou (Lyon).
  • 37
    Essien (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Scholes (Man. United).
  • 35
    Carroll (Man. United) makes a save.
    A lightning break from the French team, who catch United upfield. Frau, who recently scored as Lyon strengthened their lead at the top of Ligue 1, has time and space to shoot from close-range after being picked out well by Diarra, but the Frenchman's effort is tame and straight at Carroll.
  • 35
    Frau (Lyon) has an effort on goal.
  • 34
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    A mix up between the otherwise-impressive Essien and Réveillère allows Ronaldo to run clear, before he looks up and clips the ball towards the on-rushing Van Nistelrooij. The cross is just too high, before the Dutchman retrieves the ball and sets up another play. The second wave develops, and a neat triangle between Smith, Keane and finally Rooney gives the youngster a chance to shoot from the left side. His effort is controlled with his weaker foot, but flashes just wide.
  • 32
    Juninho (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Van Nistelrooy (Man. United).
    The Dutchman spins brilliantly on the ball, twisting past two defenders before being tugged back.
  • 30
    Scholes (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Frau (Lyon).
    A period of typical United possession, with captain Roy Keane setting the play from deep, is ended when Frau steals the ball. He looks to canter clear but is crudely felled Scholes.
  • 27
    Rooney (Man. United) misses the target.
    Long clearance from Roy Carroll, who returns to the side after Tim Howard made an appearance recently. Smith leaps well to beat Berthod in the air, flicking the ball to the feet of Rooney, who turns and shoots in one motion, but cannot control his shot sufficiently to trouble Puydebois.
  • 27
    Govou (Lyon) is flagged for offside.
  • 26
    Smith (Man. United) is flagged for offside.
  • 26
    Ronaldo (Man. United) misses the target.
    Again the 19-year-old wanders in from his wing, jinking past two defenders, who shepherd him across the penalty area, before he shoots over from distance.
  • 22
    Smith (Man. United) is penalised for a foul on Nilmar (Lyon).
  • 21
    M. Diarra (Lyon) misses the target.
  • Goal
    19
    G. Neville (Man. United) scores!
    Smith rewards manager Ferguson's faith by turning his defender, after being picked out by Ronaldo. He sweeps a low cross between the defence and the goalkeeper, causing panic in the visitor's backline. The ball is barely cleared from the line, before Neville pounces on the bouncing ball three metres out, blasting the ball home.
  • 19
    Frau (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 16
    Scholes (Man. United) misses the target.
    High and wide from the United man, who celebrated his 30th birthday last week, slicing a half-chance over Puydebois' bar.
  • 16
    M. Diarra (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Smith (Man. United).
  • 15
    Essien (Lyon) misses the target.
  • 12
    Rooney (Man. United) hits the post.
    And now Rooney looks in the mood. Taking advantage of a timely slip by defender Réveillère, the young Englishman steps inside and steers a low shot at the goalkeeper's near post, but it cannons off the base of the upright.
  • 11
    Ronaldo (Man. United) takes the corner.
  • 11
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    For the first time, the dynamic pairing of Van Nistelrooij and Rooney combine, giving Heinze time and space to measure a cross towards Smith. He glances the ball into the path of Ronaldo, who is charging into the area on the angle. Wanting too much time, his shot is blocked.
  • 10
    Berthod (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
  • 10
    Juninho (Lyon) misses the target.
  • 9
    Ronaldo (Man. United) has a shot blocked.
    The free-kick is played short for the Portuguese international to shoot from distance, but his effort is well blocked by Essien, who takes the full force of the shot in the face.
  • 9
    Juninho (Lyon) is penalised for a foul on Ronaldo (Man. United).
    Ronaldo makes his first foray in from the touch-line, but is tripped by the Brazilian international.
  • 6
    Scholes (Man. United) misses the target.
    A trademark run by the former England man, picking up the ball with a late burst into the box, but only managing to skew his shot over the bar.
