Manchester United had to settle for a goalless draw against 10-man Villarreal at El Madrigal, but the result took both sides into the next stage of the Champions League.

Cristiano Ronaldo came closest to making the breakthrough, his shot in the first half being touched onto the bar by goalkeeper Diego Lopez.

The winger's teasing prompted Joan Capdevila into a high challenge in the 83rd minute which earnt him a red card.
