Man Utd 3 - 3 CSKA Moscow

Manchester United staged a late rally at Old Trafford to claim a place in the last 16 of the Champions League after CSKA Moscow got close to end their 22-game unbeaten home record in the competition.

Manchester United looked like they would have to wait to seal their place in the knockout phase when they trailed 3-1 with only six minutes remaining.

Wayne Rooney warmed up, much to Old Trafford's delight, but before he entered the action United were denied a clear penalty when Fletcher was felled by Aleksei Berezutski.

Scholes headed home Gary Neville's free-kick with six minutes left, and Valencia capped a trademark grandstand finish when his shot from the edge of the area was deflected off Georgy Shchennikov past Akinfeev.
