Dimitar Berbatov then broke his United duck on 55 minutes when he volleyed home after a blunder by Thomas Augustinussen. Berbatov added United’s third goal in the 79th minute with a fine scissor finish after Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross.

Villarreal 1-0 Celtic
A high-quality affair at El Madrigal was decided on 67 minutes when Villarreal captain Marcos Senna struck a perfect free kick past goalkeeper Artur Boruc.
