Europe's danger men: Benzema
Lyon striker Karim Benzema
Manchester United will come up against Lyon striker Karim Benzema, who is being hailed as the new Zinedine Zidane.

France Football's Xavier Rivoire told BBC Sport: "Benzema is only 20 and he has made a bigger impact for France than Zidane, Thierry Henry or David Trezeguet had at his age. He has already got nine caps and scored three goals.

"Lyon have built their team around him and he has scored 25 goals in 40 appearances this season, with three of those coming in five Champions League matches.

"He is a very instinctive player, his shooting is exceptionally accurate and he is also good in the air. "
