Manchester United 1-0 Real Sociedad – Champions League – 23rd October 2013
After all the palavar over Sir Alex Ferguson’s book, it was back to the football pitch for Manchester United on Wednesday night in the Champions League.
The home side got the perfect start when Inigo Martinez sliced a clearance into his own net with just two minutes on the clock. That OG came after Wayne Rooney’s effort had come back off the post and the England man was the star of the show for the Red Devils, producing a fine display which deserved a goal itself. However, despite being the better side overall in the game, United failed to kill off the Spaniards.
Antoine Griezmann hit the post with free-kick for Sociedad in the first-half while United’s defence never looked fully comfortable. However, ultimately, David Moyes will be relieved to get a win at home after the disappointing draw against Southampton, with the Red Devils now in pole position for a place in the knockout stages.
