United 3 Real Madrid 1
As our tour of the USA continues and with the squad racking up huge amounts of air-miles, the good form shown so far continued last night.
In Michigan, at the Big House stadium and; in front of a crowd of 109,318; Manchester United produced another decent performance to defeat the current Champions League holders Real Madrid.
Sticking with the new 3-4-3 formation, United took the lead after 20 minutes when Ashley Young saw his fierce shot beat Iker Casillas in the Madrid goal.
In the 25th minute Real Madrid got back on level terms when Gareth Bale scored from the penalty spot after he`d been fouled by Michael Keane.
Three minutes before the break United`s lead was restored when a cross from Ashley Young evaded everyone to drift into the net.
The second half saw the appearance of Cristiano Ronaldo but the former United favourite could do nothing to influence the result and United extended their lead when Javier Hernandez headed home, with a flying header, in the 80th minute.
