Gallery: Cluj claim win

Manchester United fell to a disappointing 1-0 defeat to CFR Cluj on Wednesday night after Sir Alex Ferguson fielded a rotated team in the UEFA Champions League.

With qualification to the knockout stages already secured and one eye on Sunday’s Manchester derby, the boss rested several first team players and started several fledging Reds at Old Trafford.

In the end, Luis Alberto’s 25-yard wonder strike was all that divided the two sides, earning Cluj a place in the Europa League and succumbing United to a first Champions League loss at home in three years. 

As ever, club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to capture the action at the Theatre of Dreams and we’ve compiled the best of their work in our handy gallery above.
