Champions League: Robin Van Persie pulls Manchester United level in the aggregate (GIF)


Manchester United came in to the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 match up with Olympiacos down 2-0 in the aggregate score. They got a goal roughly 25 minutes into the game after United striker Robin Van Persie got a shoulder in the back in the box.

Van Persie buried the penalty kick to bring United with in one goal and he wasn’t done. In stoppage time of the first half Van Persie scored again to pull United level. Wayne Rooney sent a low pass into the center of the box and Van Persie buried it for the tie. If they can get one more goal and hold the clean sheet they’re advancing to the next round.
