Robin Van Persie completes hat trick, gives Manchester United the lead in the aggregate (GIF)


Manchester United has done it, they’ve come from down 2-0 in the aggregate to Olympiacos in their Champions League round of 16 match up to take the lead. They’re currently leading 3-0 in the game and 3-2 in the aggregate and all three goals have come from the boot of Robin Van Persie.

The first goal was a penalty kick from the spot after a penalty he drew. The second was on a low cross from Wayne Rooney, and the third was an incredible free kick from outside the box. Since it was his third goal completing Robin Van Persie’s first Champions League hat trick we’ve got three angles of the goal for you.
