Manchester duo face up to Europa task
15 February 2012, 08:24
The city of Manchester were hoping to see their two football sides fight
out the Champions League final but instead on Thursday both sets of
fans will have to make do with the lesser fare of the Europa League.
However, both face tricky second round ties if they are to progress a
step closer to the final on May 9 in the mundane surroundings of
Bucharest rather than the glamour of the Champions League final in
Munich on May 19.
Bigspending City - who finished third in a tough Champions League group
behind Bayern Munich and Napoli - have to travel to defending champions
Porto in Portugal while United, who surprisingly finished below Benfica
and Basle, are away at Dutch giants Ajax.
