AaB Aalborg 0-3 Man Utd

Oct 1, 2008

Dimitar Berbatov got off the mark with a double strike as Manchester United cruised to Champions League victory against Aalborg in Denmark.

Wayne Rooney slid home a pass from Ryan Giggs – on for Paul Scholes after he was stretchered off with a knee injury – to open the scoring after 22 minutes.

Berbatov opened his goal account when he took advantage of a defensive mix-up to score 10 minutes after half-time.

He then volleyed in Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross for his second after 79 minutes.

United outclassed Bruce Rioch’s minnows, but injuries to Scholes and Rooney cast a shadow over the win, which leaves them with four points from their first two group games.
