Late Valencia strike gives Man United 1-0 win in Moscow

October 22, 2009 00:20 IST

A late strike by winger Antonio Valencia gave Manchester United a 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow in Champions League Group B on Wednesday.

Valencia fired in from a tight angle from Dimitar Berbatov's headed pass four minutes from time to earn the English champions their third win in three matches in the competition.

United were playing at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium for the first time since their victory in the 2008 Champions League final when they beat Premier League rivals Chelsea in a penalty shootout.

United top the group with nine points.
