UCL - United Won San Siro Clash

Ronney Brace Gives United Edge

I was so occupied last week to blog on mid week league game against Aston Villa. I always have this kind of uncomfortable feeling everytime United played on Villa. No matter what position Villa occupied in the league, match against them is usual very tough. Luckily it was 1-1 although Nani got sent off.

The big match for this week was the second round of UCL the resume this week. United off to San Siro for the clashed with Serie A giant AC Milan. The Rossoneri are third in the league although they had sluggish start of the campaign. Their form recently could considered medicore as for the last five games they recorded two wins, two draws and a lost. The aging team lead by their gaffer Leonardo still in recovery process of losing their best player Kaka to Real Madrid. Like Ferguson said this was the best time for United to visit San Siro.

Well AC Milan still among the best team in Europe if not in the world. United used to have jinx against Italian team. But not nowadays. After big result against Roma few years ago, United confidence now grew high.

And United showed their great character by defeating the Italian 3-2 with help from Rooney brace. Though  just a slim lead but three goals and a win are big moral boost. Although 3-1 would be a healthy lead that almost took them into quarter final.

The best things is it was United first ever win in the San Siro. Glory Glory United
