    Vidić (Man. United) scores!
    A long period of pressure by the home side ends with them getting back on level terms after a Ryan Giggs outswinging free-kick from the left is headed in by Nemanja Vidić - the Serbian defender getting in front of goalkeeper Quim to score his first UEFA Champions League goal. This latest twist would see United go through as group winners and Benfica eliminated.

    Nélson (Benfica) scores!
    Benfica take the lead at Old Trafford thanks a marvellous strike from Nélson. Simão created it, wriggling free down the right before cutting the ball back to the defender who curled it high into Edwin van der Sar's net from the edge of the area. Is lightening about the strike twice for United, following their exit at the hands of Benfica last season?
