The hunt for Europe glory starts for the half red of Manchester. Against former giant of Europe. There is no more pushover teams in Europe. Thought it is relatively easy group for United any mistake could cause tougher route towards the dream final.
United is without Ferdinand and Cleverly. Evra and Evans said in doubts. No sure about Vidic. So if without the Serbian United maybe would pair Smalling and Jones as central defender. In midfield United had a lot of choices. Carrick seems to be the choice to take Cleverly place. In attack would be no surprise. Rooney and the Little Pea.
Benfica had two players that I really admire. Both Argentine in the name of Juan Pablo Aimar and Javier 'the rabbit' Saviola. They are the best at their time. Combined with Juan Roman Riquelme they are the best on the field. They are invincible. Hehehehe.... but they are really great players. Hope to see Aimar and Saviola play against United. The was a time they I really hope Sir Alex signed one of them.
The verdict Benfica 0-3 United
