All the pre match hype surrounded the return of professional ginger twat Paul Scholes and he maintained his high standards in this competition by once again doing bugger all. RVN followed up a sensational piece of trickery by Giggs on the left to head the Mancs in front right on half time. Van Nistelrooy returned the favour with a through pass and Giggs, having missed an open goal in the first half, calmly rolled the ball wide of Hildebrand.

Assists : Giggs, Van Nistelrooy


Mols headed Rangers in front but the Greeks hit back immediately. Zutautas beat Klose with an excellently placed low shot. An astonishing 40yd strike sent Pana into the lead and Konstantinou, who I once thought had a great future, broke the offside trap to add a third on the counter.

Assists : Ball, Munch, Sapanis, Epalle

Former Everton defender Michael Ball appeared to clear any danger when he headed Keane's cross out wide but the ball was met by a sensational left foot volley from Forlan, right into the bottom corner. The crossbar denied him a second goal but the ball hit Van Nistelrooy, bounced onto the post and into the net. Van Nistelrooy scored his second from a Giggs free kick.

Assist : Giggs (fk)


Panathinaikos' goal seemed to wake up the Bundesliga leaders. Minutes after Konstantinou's low shot beat Hildebrand, Fyssas finished off a brilliant passing move, for the wrong side. Kuryani gave Stuttgart into the lead with a well place shot from the edge of the box and found Hinkel with a pass out wide, Hinkel beat two players before side footing into the net.

Assists : Papadopoulos, Hleb, Kuryani

Emerson was credited with the opener though it looked like Capucho got the last touch. Substitute Goumas got a second yellow for pulling back Averladze. Papadopoulos volleyed into the ground, the ball bounced towards Konstantinidis leaving him with a simple header.

Can't wait for Rangers vs Man United!

Assist : Papadopoulos
Red Card : Goumas 56 (Panathinaikos)


Lahm beat Gary Neville to a long ball, Rio Ferdinand's slip allowed Szabics a run on goal and he coolly placed the ball into the bottom corner. A fantastic first time pass by Szabics sent away Kuryani, Howard flew off his line but Kuryani beat him with a delightful lob. Van Nistelrooy converted a penalty won by performing seal Ronaldo. An equally theatrical dive by Kuryani gave Stuttgart a chance to seal victory from the penalty spot but Meira was denied by a stunning save.

Assists : Lahm, Szabics, Ronaldo (won pen)

Silvestre bundled in a corner and Fortunate slammed in United's second a minute later. Nikopolidis decided to do the hosts a favour, as if they needed any help, when he let Solskjaer's shot squirm through his hands. Butt scored with a tremendous towering header and Djemba Djemba helped himself to his first goal for the club when Giggs completed a hat-trick of assists.

How RVN didn't score is a mystery. Pana should stick to making AV equipment.

Assists : Giggs (x2), O'Shea, Giggs


Deep into first half injury time Stuttgart were awarded a free kick miles away from goal. Bordon's deflected shot came back off a post and Kuryani stabbed into a welcoming net. Stuttgart, who had yet to concede a goal in the Bundesliga, defended like Real Madrid allowing Nerlinger to draw the Jocks level. Five minutes Loverkrands hit a dramatic winner. He received the ball wide left, went past two players and sent a 25yd drive crashing into the bottom corner, via a slight deflection off Bordon.
