The Reds' return to Champions League action is celebrated in style by the official match programme for Wednesday night.

Retaining the European Cup is a key theme of the United Review's content, with Sir Alex Ferguson, Pat Crerand and a panel of experts including Edwin van der Sar and Teddy Sheringham pondering the prospects of a repeat success.

Villarreal are the first hurdle and their challenge is assessed by Reds skipper Gary Neville while ex-United striker Giuseppe Rossi gives an insight into life at the Spanish club. The programme also has profiles of Villarreal's top players plus their coach Manuel Pellegrini.

As the first Champions League match programme of 2008/09, it's fitting that United Review reflects on the glorious run of last season with a comprehensive A-Z guide to the Reds' third European Cup triumph.

There's also a pull-out poster of the Reds proudly holding the trophy aloft in Moscow, backed by a behind the scenes shot of Wes Brown in training and a classic image of Sir Matt Busby
