MU drew, Milan won

Prior to their second meeting in the last three champions league season, Manchester United and Milan have a different story in their quest in the league. Milan won 3-1 against lower table Cagliari, thanks two goals from "Il Phenomenon" Ronaldo. Since joining Milan from Real Madrid, Ronaldo has scored 7 goals in 12 appearances. It's like he has found his killing touch which make him so famous. His first goal came in the first half, following a good cross from his fellow countryman Marcos Cafu. He scored the second goal in the 69th minute, using his chest following a scramble in front of the Cagliari's goal. Another goal from Andrea Pirlo from a free kick practically ended Cagliari's hope to get an equaliser after David Suazo scored from the penalty spot. The penalty were given after Capone was fouled inside the area by Kakha Kaladze. Kaladze were sent off four minutes from time after pulling Capone's shirt. Although playing with ten men, Milan went on and got three points which they much needed in securing 4th place in the table which means Champions league qualification for next year.
Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford by their visitor Middlesbrough. This draw means they are now four points ahead of Chelsea who is facing Newcastle tonight. A win for Chelsea and the advantage will be cut to only one point and throw the championship wide open. With the superclash match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge still to come, it seems now the treble for Manchester United is a very tough task to fulfill. Manchester started the game well, and were infront after just three minutes, thanks to Kieran Richardson's goal. Viduka scored for Boro just minutes before the half time break. This goal was pretty much helped by the injury to Rio Ferdinand, who is now in doubt for Tuesday Champions league semifinal against Milan.
