Manchester United displayed great spirit last night when coming from 1-0 down to beat Romanian outfit CFR Cluj in the Champions League.
The Red Devils fell behind to a strike from Greek forward Pantelis Kapetanos in the 14th minute, but did not have to wait too long to get back on level terms, with Robin van Persie scoring in the 29th minute.
That put Manchester United 2-1 ahead and it was an advantage Sir Alex Ferguson’s men never relinquished, claiming three valuable points in Romania.
Ferguson’s side dominated possession, enjoying 67% of the ball on the night, while they also registered more shots on goal than Cluj.
Even so, the Red Devils may feel they could have produced a better display, especially with the talent they had on the pitch.
Elsewhere in Group H, Portuguese side Braga bounced back from an opening group game defeat to Cluj by visiting Turkey and beating Galatasaray 2-0.
The result opens up the race for second place in the group, while Manchester United are firmly in charge on top with six points.
