Clarence Seedorf’s skilful 85th-minute flick finish gave Milan a fighting finish as united held for there first ever win in Milan , Michael Carrick was sent off in injury time for kicking the ball away.
United’s defence  at times wea poor tonight particularly Jonny Evans –were vulnerable whenever tested, even gifting Milan opportunities at times, but come the home leg in three weeks time im sure this will be different.

Real Madrid was also out played tonight away at lyon lost 1-0 despite the presence of such standouts as Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema,

Lyon will be kicking themselves not having put another two or three goals past the Spanish side, but squandered chances and bad luck haunted the French team.

The post denied Cesar Delgado a goal when he hammered a volley into the woodwork in the first half, and Lyon had to settle for Makoun’s 47th-minute strike with a wonder 25-yard volley that easily beat Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas

Former Lyon idol Karim Benzema came off the Real bench 25 minutes from time but failed to make much of an impact.

Lyon striker Lisandro Lopez said that “this is an excellent result for us, though it could have been ever better.”

Jorge Valdano, Real’s general director, admitted that it had been “a bad night” and that “we were not really us tonight…”We are now obliged to make a real concentrated effort” (in the return leg).
