Manchester United 4-2 Bayer Leverkusen – Champions League – 17th September 2013

Soccer - UEFA Champions League - Group A - Manchester United v Bayer Leverkusen - Old Trafford

Not so long ago, Wayne Rooney looked on his way out of Old Trafford, however on Tuesday night, the chunky hitman was the star of the show for Manchester United against Sami Hyypia’s Bayer Leverkusen side.

The striker bagged a brace to take his total for the Red Devils in all competitions to 200, a superb feat. Robin Van Persie and Antonio Valencia also got on the scoresheet in a game the home side dominated.

Bayer Leverkusen did bag a couple of goals, courtesy of  Simon Rolfes and Omer Toprak, which are sure to have irked David Moyes but overall it was a satisfactory start to United’s European campaign.

    Only one thing to say about that game last night and that is the outrageous dicision for Man Utd’s first goal!! How on earth 3 officials couldnt see that foul on the keeper let alone the offside is a complete and utter joke! that extra offical really should be employed in a “Big-Top” as light entertainment…….

    Of course that first united goal was counted. Everything goes their way
