CFR Cluj vs. Manchester United: Halftime Score 1-1, Red Devils being challenged

Could Manchester United end up facing a challenge to emerge from a Champions League group filled with inferior opposition for a second year in a row? They're getting all they can handle from Romanian champions CFR Cluj, who already have three points in the group. It's 1-1 at halftime in Romania.

Cluj stunned United with an early goal after just 14 minutes. Camora sprung Modou Sougou down the right flank with a fantastic switch, and he played a low cross into the penalty area. Striker Pantelis Kapetanos was in the perfect spot and finished off the move to give Cluj the lead.

It took 12 minutes for United to hit back through Robin van Persie, who headed in a free kick by Wayne Rooney to draw his side level. United have had more of the ball and some other half-chances, but they're not really bothering the hosts like they should. Cluj are holding their own and look like they have the chops to keep the score level.
