Manchester United Vs. Valencia: Pablo Hernandez Becomes First To Score Against United In This Year's Champions League

Valencia has taken the lead on Manchester United just part the half hour mark, becoming the first team to score on United in this year's Champions League. Pablo Hernández, beating Ben Amos through the goalkeeper's legs, gave Valencia a lead in the 31st minute at Old Trafford.

The chance came after a turnover from Michael Carrick ten yards into the United midfielder's own half. The ball was picked up by Alejandro Domínguez who, racing to the edge of his box, rolled a left-footed pass to an oncoming Hernández, entering the box even with Amos's left post. The United `keeper raced off his line to cut down the unneeded angles, with Hernández beating him between his legs.

If this result stands, Valencia will finish even with United at the top of Group C and win the group on overall goal difference, one of the last tiebreakers. Should United win or draw,  the Red Devils would win the group.
