It was a good night for the Manchester clubs in Europe last night…
PORTO 1-2 MAN. CITY
Man. City came from a goal down to beat Europa League holders Porto in the first-leg of their last 32 tie in Portugal last night!
Silvestre Varela gave Porto the lead, but City deservedly leveled when defender Alvaro Pereira turned Yaya’s Toure’s cross into his own net.
Sergio Aguero came off the bench to hit a late winner and give City the edge in this tie!
MAN OF THE MATCH: Yaya Toure
AJAX 0-2 MAN. UNITED
Man. United are in control of their tie thanks to a wicked second-half performance!
Ashley Young gave United the lead on 59 minutes with a drilled finish and Javier Hernandez grabbed the second away goal after exchanging passes with Wayne Rooney.
Young hasn’t finished on the losing side in any of his last 20 games now!
MAN OF THE MATCH: Ashley Young
STOKE 1-0 VALENCIA
Stoke lost their first European match last night to put their hopes of progressing in danger!
Mehmet Topal delivered the killer blow on 36 minutes with a 30-yard screamer!
Stoke couldn’t find an equaliser and must now win the return leg in Spain on 23 February.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Mehmet Topal
