Will Nani win the UEFA Supercup? Next ManU game Aug 29, Manchester United 1-2 Zenit St. Petersburg -Video of goals. Danny won

The next game for Manchester United is the UEFA Supercup. Manchester United v. Zenit St. Petersburg, Louis II stadium, in Monaco. For Manchester United, it will be the chance to make up for the defeat in 1999, when they lost against Italian club, Lazio. I think they will beat Zenit St. Petersburg with a goal by Carlos Tevez.

Manchester United is in 6th place on the table, in the 3rd week:

Cristiano Ronaldo still not fit to play. He was watching in the stands.

Manchester United 1-2 Zenit
Vidić 73 ---- Pogrebnyak 44,
---------------------- Danny 59
August 29, 2008, Stade Louis II, Monaco

Two Portugal national team players:

Manchester United: Nani in the starting lineup on the left side. Not a good game. On the left side Zenith defenders wouldn't give him space. No shots on goal. Zenith in the first half attacking on the left side leaving Nani and Evra out of position.

Zenith: Danny, forward (called up for the next 2 Portugal games), also in the starting lineup. I'm watching it on Fox Soccer channel. Danny many runs in the first half, constantly in the midfield against Scholes, would go forward on the right and left side. Better game than Nani.

In the first 6 minutes, Zenith attacked twice on the left side, #22, pass by Evra and Nani. They are using the counterattack by taking the ball from Tevez in the box. Zenith if focusing on not letting Nani Evra keep possesion on the ball so Tevez doesn't get much service. 14' Nani commits a foul on Portuguese Danny. Tevez is dropping deeper. In the first 14 minutes it's Zenith could have scored. Three times went forward on the left-side, catching Nani and Evra out of posistion. The final touch wasn't successful. #22 kit it over the bar, then the third time, Ferdnand was there to block it and gave a corner kick to Zenith. Van Der Saar caught it. NO Man U shot on target YET. The closest ManU gets to goal is Nani losing the ball or not giving any space to Tevez.

I thought Man U would be the one with the shots on goal. 20' Danny pass to ht far post, Evra doesn't clear it well. Tymoschuk gets the rebound but kicks it over the bar. Claims a free kick.

23' Free kick for Zenith. Fletcher playing in the middle, not going forwad on the right side.
