CR7 & Bruno come close
Turning attentions towards the action itself this afternoon, the scoreline late in the first-half, somehow, remains locked at 0-0.
This comes despite hosts United having carved out and subsequently fluffed a hatful of presentable opportunities to break the deadlock.
Both Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo have come close, with the latter having also seen what looked set to be the hosts’ go-ahead goal ruled out for offside.
20 minutes gone and #MUFC will wonder how they’re not ahead. Created four really good chances, Ronaldo off the post, had one ruled out for offside and a one v one that Fernandes should have finished. Elanga really bright.
