  • Olympiakos 2 Man Utd 0. A tough season for the Red Devils hits another low. United were second best and can have few complaints. They have it all to do in the return leg at Old Trafford.

  • Evra with a hopeful lump forward. Van Persie slips, but the ball breaks to Young. He sees a snap-shot deflect behind. Young takes the corner, Vidic fails to connect.

  • De Gea scuffs a clearance, but to a team-mate. Olaitan frustrates United by holding off two defenders and winning a throw. Seconds ticking away. Ball touched behind for a goal kick by Olaitan.

  • Break in play as Olympiakos play the clock. Olaitan down. Welbeck gives them the ball back. Roberto takes as long as possible to get the game going again.

  • Kagawa into Rooney. The ball is played back to Kagawa, who has Evra flying down the left. He is forced towards the by-line and can't cut the ball back towards the penalty spot.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • Young crossing towards Welbeck, but can't pick him out. Rooney looks right again, but Young's touch lets him down. Ferdinand fells Fuster with a lunging tackle and is rightly cautioned.

  • Van Persie unable to make telling connection with a Welbeck pass prodded through a collection of bodies. Roberto able to gather and calm things down.

  • Kagawa sent tumbling, but deep inside his own half. Vidic leaves the free-kick to De Gea. He drills long, but Welbeck is beaten in the air by Salino.

  • Holebas swings the ball into the box, but away from the runners in the middle and behind for a goal kick. De Gea in a hurry to get the ball back in play.

  • Final change made by Olympiakos, with Valdez thrown on in place of the hard-working Perez. On the field, Rooney concedes a free-kick 40 yards from goal.

  • Moyes still barking out instructions, but you wonder if anyone is listening. Back to the drawing board - again - for the United boss.

  • Rooney outnumbered in midfield. Olympiakos always seem to have numbers where they need them. They can't threaten on this occasion though.

  • Welbeck thinks he has won a corner, but doesn't get the call. Evra joins the debate and needs to be careful as he has already been booked. Ball looked to have hit Manolas last.

  • First clear chance of the night for United, and they waste it. Great run down the right from Smalling. He feeds over a clever cross. His first touch is great, but the second is with his right foot and sees him lash over the top from 10 yards out.

  • Van Persie with a hopeful shot from 20 yards out which cannons into the back of Welbeck. Sums up United's night. Looking increasingly likely that they will leave empty-handed.

  • Smalling clears on the edge of his own box. United still being forced to play backwards far too often. Young is able to beat the offside trap and send over a dangerous low cross which Roberto has to punch clear on the slide.

  • Evra up above Perez, but flicks out for a throw. United now running out of time if they are to get anything to take back to Old Trafford.

  • Perez with a direct burst at Evra. The United full-back can only watch as the ball breaks off his shins and behind for a corner. Machado over the set-piece. His delivery drops inside the box, before Young hacks clear.

  • The ball bounces too high for Kagawa to do anything with it and he has to settle for a throw. Ferdinand then invites Smalling forward, but Olaitan nicks the ball back for the hosts. Poor pass from Carrick this time.
