The Mexican scored his second in the 75th minute from another cross, this time from Ryan Giggs.

Wes Brown scores an own-goal

With just seven minutes to go, United's Wes Brown scored an own-goal, setting up a nervous end to the match. If Marseille scored again then they'd win on away goals.

But United held on for a win and a place in the last eight of the competition. It's the fifth season in a row they've got to the quarter-finals.
