Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 Man Utd
The least experienced side Manchester United have ever fielded for a Champions League tie proved unable to contain a Deportivo team determined to end their European campaign on a high.
Victor opened the scoring and Mark Lynch headed into his own net as the Spanish team, who went into the game with no chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals, overcame an unfamiliar-looking United side.
With United already group winners, manager Sir Alex Ferguson selected a team that included the likes of Danny Pugh, Darren Fletcher and debutant Lynch.
Deportivo, who like United have key domestic fixtures looming, rested Diego Tristan and Mauro Silva but had too much class for their youthful but at times na´ve opposition.
The result might have been different, though, if Fletcher had not had an opportunity cleared off the line and Ryan Giggs had not struck the post as United looked to rescue the contest in the final 30 minutes.
United took time to settle and Deportivo enjoyed some early opportunities.
11 mins: Ricardo saves from Luque
32 mins: Victor opens the scoring
47 mins: Lynch scores an own goal
62 mins: Fletcher's shot is cleared off the line
69 mins: Giggs hits the post
Roberto Acuna drilled his long-range shot wide after nine minutes, while Ricardo in the United goal tipped Albert Luque's low drive around the post two minutes later.
And the visitors had nothing but a couple of wayward long-range efforts from Diego Forlan to show for their endeavour before Deportivo opened the scoring.
United's hopes of getting back into the encounter foundered just two minutes after the restart when Lynch headed into his own net.
Lynch and Luque both competed for Victor's teasing cross and, having got the wrong side of the Deportivo striker, the United defender inadvertently put the ball into his own net.
I'm satisfied with the effort from my young team
Ricardo then saved from Luque as Deportivo started to dominate against United's vastly inexperienced side.
Deportivo threatened to administer a hiding but United continued to try and push forward and twice came close to scoring.
Fletcher had a low strike from 10 yards cleared off the line by Cesar and Giggs watched in frustration as his drive rebounded off the post to safety.
