Champions League: Cluj 1-2 Man Utd – Van Persie Shoulders The Burden For Red Devils (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

CFR Cluj-Napoca 1-2 Manchester United – Champions League – 2nd October 2012

Robin Van Persie continued his superb scoring run with a brace away at Cluj on Tuesday night. His first came off his shoulder after he missed a header on the half-hour mark, but his second, which came after the break, was a superb strike. Latching on to a fantastic chipped through ball from Wayne Rooney, the Dutchman flicked the ball past the goalkeeper with the outside of his trusty left boot.

The Romanians had opened the scoring themselves on 14 minutes, courtesy of a goal from Pantelis Kapetanos after dodgy defending from Patric Evra. However, except for a spell of pressure at the death from the home side, United were worth the win.

    (not sure if it works outside of holland)

  2. Jarren says:

    Brilliant finish from van Persie.

    Wouldn’t put it past him to score a carbon copy of van Basten’s ’88 Euro screamer at some point this season.

    Preferably against City.

    Just sayin’

  3. Baz says:

    pretty pathetic display from United throw most of their forwards on to beat FC Cluj

  4. Graham says:

    Finally, SAF playing Rooney as an *actual* number 10.
    Unfortunately, Evra is still *actually* the first choice left back.

  5. Alex says:

    ManU are a one man team.

  6. Badgers in the Nursery says:

    So, RVP is better now?

    Fitba Thatba still makes me laugh.
