Man United 2, Benfica 0: Daley Blind, Mile Svilar Goal Videos



Manchester United, behind the strength of a penalty kick conversion from Daley Blind, and an own goal by opposing goalkeeper Mile Svilar, were 2-0 winners in the UEFA Champions League tonight. The Old Trafford faithful were sent home happy as the Red Devils all but clinched passage into the knockout round of the UCL.

They’ve played four group stage games in the European tournament, and they have won all four.

Here’s footage of Blind making good on the PK in the 78′

Now here’s the footage of the shot by midfielder Nemanja Matic (who gave a great postgame interview, watch it here) reaching the post, which then ricochets into Mile Svilar, who accidentally knocks it in the net.

Svilar is the youngest goal keeper in Champions League history, and he’s full of promise.

There are much better days from him ahead.

Daley Blind and company need just a point in their final two games to punch their ticket to the knockout round. The only way they don’t get through is if 1. they lose both of their remaining games. 2. CSKA Moscow and FC Basel both win each of their remaining two. That’s a lot of if-then scenarios, and highly unlikely of course.

It’s pretty safe to say now that United are moving on.
