Match Commentary

93' Typical predatory goals by Ruud. Only the third goal did he have to work for, Sparta gifting the rest. But the result is what counts and United march on!
93' And that's it. United win 4-1. Ruud bagging the lot. The home side were sloppy at times and against better, more clinical finishing could have been punished.
92' Old Trafford find their voice and the Red Flag is flying.
