Besiktas 0 United 1: Player ratings
Foster: Didn?t have an awful lot to do but what he did was very assured 7 Neville: The veteran held his ground and was on top of his immediate opponent throughout 7 Evans: Drafted in for injured Ferdinand and he looked as composed as the England defender 8 Vidic: Had a couple of moments when he put United in trouble 6 Evra: Defensively sound and was a threat overlapping Nani 7 Valencia: Started with some nervous touches but got into it and put in some decent tantalising crosses 7 Anderson: Not quite up to his Tottenham standard but he was still dominant in midfield 7 Scholes: Quietly imposing in the engine room to keep Reds ticking and popped up for a now rare goal 7 Carrick: Never really got a hold of the game and wasn?t really needed to guard defence 6 Nani: Tendency to overdo it spoilt some decent possession 6 Rooney: Ploughed a lone frustrating furrow and didn?t look a happy chappy 6 Subs: Owen (sub Rooney 63) Busy effort 6 Berbatov (sub Carrick 63) Didn?t really show 5 Park (sub Valencia 84) Kept it tight 5 Brown, Park, Fabio, Gibson, Kuszczak not used Besiktas: Arikan, Kas, Sivok, Nobre, Tabata (Tello 69), Dag, Uzulmez, Ozkan (Simsek 59), Holosko, Ferrari, Ernst Goals: Besiktas: United: Scholes (77) Bookings: Besiktas: Sivok (6) Nobre (53) United: Vidic (89) Battle of the Bosses Fergie?s cautious plan kept Besiktas quiet and then he went for the attacking option. His Turkish counterpart didn?t seem to have any plan B Referee: Nicola Rizzoli (Italy) - No problems to worry him. 7 Attendance: 35,000 Agree with the ratings? Have your say.
