Manchester United secured their place in the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League in style by thrashing Bayer Leverkusen 5-0 at the BayArena yesterday evening.
Antonio Valencia put the Premier League champions in front on twenty-two minutes, turning in Wayne Rooney’s cross before Emir Spahic turned in to own net to double the visitors advantage on the half hour mark.
Manchester United will be without Robin van Persie and Nemanja Vidic for this evening’s Champions League clash with Bayer Leverkusen.
Both missed Sunday’s draw with Cardiff City, and neither flew with the squad to Germany despite Vidic taking part in training ahead of the trip.
Manchester United duo Michael Carrick and Nemanja Vidic have both signed new contacts with the club, the Daily Star understands.
England international Carrick has put pen to paper on a new two year deal which could see him end his career with the current Premier League champions, while club captain Vidic has extended his deal by a further twelve months.
