PSV 2-3 ANDERLECHT
Koller and Radzinski flicked on a corner, Stoica's superbly placed header gave Waterreus no chance. Dheedene ran onto Hoflund's hospital pass and squared for the giant Koller to tap-in Anderlecht's second. Kezman came on as a substitute and got PSV back in the match, his beautifully weighted cross was turned in by Ramzi. Ramzi equalised with another tap-in - from Bruggink's pass. Hoflund was sent off for bringing down Youla when through on goal. De Wilde launched a ball downfield, Youla raced onto Koller's flick on and drilled the ball past Waterreus, here come the Belgians!
Assists : Radzinski, Dheedene, Kezman, Bruggink, Koller

ANDERLECHT 2-1 MAN UNITED
Donkey Silvestre stood appealing for offside as Radzinski raced onto Baseggio's pass and shot Anderlecht into the lead. Radzinski swept a brilliant first time shot past the bald twat Barthez. Irwin converted a penalty awarded for a foul on Cole.
A win at home to Kyiv will see Man United into Phase 2. Anderlecht need to be beat PSV.
Assists : Baseggio, Koller, Cole

ANDERLECHT 4-2 DYNAMO KYIV
Khatskevitch flicked on a corner and Kaladze headed high into the net. Shovkovskyi came out for a corner and punched the ball against Vaschuk, own goal. Radzinski threw himself at Crasson's cross to give the Belgians an unlikely lead. Basseggio hit a free kick straight into the Kyiv wall and Radzinski was first to react, poking in his second. Goor and Koller combined for Anderlecht's fourth though Shovkovskyi got a touch to Stoica's shot. Bialkevich got one back late on.
Assists : Khatskevitch, Crasson, Koller, Kuzmichev
MAN UNITED 3-1 PSV
Sheringham headed in Beckham's corner. Donkey Silvestre headed a cross straight back into the danger area and Bommel spectacularly volleyed the Dutch level. Silvestre made up for his earlier mistake with a superb cross field pass to Yorke, he turned the ball on, Cole let it run through his legs, Scholes flicked it up before volleying past Kralj. Giggs flicked on Scholes pass to release Yorke and he outran the PSV defence before shooting into the corner.
Assists : Beckham, Yorke, Giggs

DYNAMO KYIV 4-0 ANDERLECHT
Husin finally scored after a session of pinball in the box. Shaktskikh converted Dmytrulin's cross. Demetradze chipped De Wilde from close range thank to an awesome disguised pass from Shaktskikh and scored an outrageous second, mortgaging two defenders before rolling the ball inside the post.
Assists : Dmytrulin, Shaktskikh, Bialkevich
PSV 3-1 MAN UNITED
Ferguson left Beckham, Giggs and several other stars on the bench. Waterreus was lucky not to be sent off for bringing down Solskjaer in the box. Scholes slammed in the penalty. Nikiforov launched a ball downfield, Bouma raced clear as the United defence stood for offside and drilled the ball past Van der Gouw. Kezman released Bommel with a superb pass and he stuck the ball under Van der Gouw's legs to give the Dutch a shock lead. Kezman missed an open goal as once again United's offside trap failed. Kezman made sure of the points with a tremendous goal, he surged down the right flank, cut inside the box and from the type of angle you expect a cross to be delivered from he blasted a shot into the roof of the net.
Assists : Solskjaer, Nikiforov, Kezman, Van Bommel

MAN UNITED 5-1 ANDERLECHT
Cole got his first with a bullet header from a Giggs cross. Giggs lost his balance in the box and the ref decided to award a penalty, like they needed any help. Irwin converted. Sheringham scored at the second attempt from Beckham's cross.
Cole helped himself to a second capitalising on a shocking attempted clearance. Baseggio rode a tackle from Keane before releasing Koller with a super pass, Barthez came out of his goal, made a pathetic attempt to block Koller and his shot hit the post and trickled over the goal-line. Cole completed his hat-trick by heading in a deep Beckham cross.
Assists : Giggs (x2), Baseggio, Beckham
