United Advances to Quarter Finals On RVP Hat Trick

Van Persie

Hat Trick against Olympiakos

RVP scored a goal from the spot, finished a Rooney pass, and a beautiful free kick to see United through to the Champions League Quarter Finals. Olympiacos had scored two unanswered goals in the first leg so United needed something special to keep their Champions League hopes alive. They got the something special from Robin van Persie. Unfortunately for United, RVP was injured by a ridiculous challenge near the end of added time and was stretchered off. This is a blow to United who just got van Persie back in form after his long recovery from a thigh injury.  However, his goals and the final aggregate score brought a welcome result at Old Trafford where their ‘Field of Dreams’ has been anything but, of late.

The next leg promises to be an even bigger challenge as they are taking on Bayern Munchen, the defending Champions. It’s truly unfortunate that RVP will be out for those matches. However, United has many good experienced players, and Rooney is finding his form, so here’s hoping the team can knock off the champs and move on.
