Man Utd survive tricky Lyon test
Manchester United fell behind in Lyon but bounced back to win the tie

Manchester United were drawn against French champions Lyon in their last-16 tie, with the first leg played away from home.

It was a difficult evening for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, with young French sensation Karim Benzema brilliantly shooting Lyon ahead after 54 minutes.

United appeared to be slipping to defeat but Carlos Tevez equalised close to full time after Lyon failed to clear a corner.

Cristiano Ronaldo put United ahead in the return leg and, despite Lyon hitting the woodwork, it was enough to win the tie and book a place in the quarter-finals.
