HIGHLIGHTS: Champions League: Manchester United vs. Olympique de Marseille


via Fox Soccer Channel

Javier Hernandez continued his impressive European form by scoring a brace against the defending French champions as Manchester United move on to the round of 8 in the UEFA Champion's League.  United fielded a side that included John O'Shea and Wes Brown in defense as Nemanja Vidic was a late scratch and Rafael was being rested following Saturday's FA Cup game that saw him playing on the wing. 


Brown scored an own goal in the 83rd minute, putting Marseille in the position of equalizing and thus advancing through based on away goals for the final seven minutes plus stoppage time.  However, the United defense were able to hold on and secure their place in the next round of the competition.
