0-1. 85. Hernández. Controlled Macheda cross and shot low past César.
Valencia were beaten 0-1 by Manchester United in their second group game, a set back to their aspirations after their opening victory against Bursaspor. Berbatov fired an early chance just wide of the upright, but after that the locals had the better chances, with Soldado in particular heading over the top with the goal at his mercy. Pablo drove an angled shot wide of the post after the restart, and Rio Ferdinand did well to cut out a couple of attacks by Pablo and Soldado, but César had to be at his best to keep out Berbatov at the other end. Ferguson turned to Chicharito Hernández though, and a couple of minutes after the Mexican striker hit the post, he picked up a cross from Macheda and cut between the two central defenders before drilling a low shot in to the net. A first defeat for the Ches this season, and with Rangers beating Bursaspor as well they drop down to third in the table.
