Manchester United 3 Celtic 2

An entertaining encounter to kick off the Champions League group stages saw Manchester United overcome Scottish League Champions Celtic.

A brace from Frenchman Louis Saha, who is starting to prove a worthy goal scorer and a single goal from Solskjaer was enough to overcome Celtic.

The Scots however did prove to be more of an opposition than to be expected, even by their own player`s admissions/worries before the game. Celtic were indeed first to score, with Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink putting them 1 up after just 20 minutes. Shunsuke Nakamura levelled the game at 2-2 with a stunning free kick strike.

The joy of the result was slightly dented by the injury to Ryan Giggs. Giggs was injured in the incident that brought about the penalty, the midfielder being fouled by goalkeeper Artur Boruc. Giggs played no further part in the game, with a suspected hamstring injury likely to put him out for a couple of weeks.

United:

an der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Brown, Silvestre, Fletcher, Scholes (O'Shea 79), Carrick, Giggs (Solskjaer 32), Rooney (Richardson 86), Saha.

Those who sat down for 90 minutes: Kuszczak, Evra, Smith, Vidic.

Boruc, Wilson (Telfer 51), Caldwell, McManus, Naylor, Lennon, Nakamura, Gravesen, Jarosik (Miller 55), McGeady (Maloney 69), Vennegoor of Hesselink.

Players not needed: Marshall, Balde, Zurawski, Sno.
