91mins Apologies for the sporadic second half coverage, some intermittent internet reception has put paid to most of the last 15 minutes. The standard of play has been dire since Rooney's penalty. Galati have had Milan Perendija sent off after the defender picked up his 11th yellow card in 13 games and Rooney has notched a second penalty to ensure the United win.

75mins Galati substitution: Ionut Neagu off, Marius Pena on. Man Utd sub: Fabio off, Jones on.

71mins Johnny Evans replaces Antonio Valencia.

69mins Galati can sense a way back into this match now. Antal's shot on goal is blocked by Carrick who's now playing as makeshift centre-back.

64mins RED CARD NEMANJA VIDIC. It's all kicking off in Bucharest. Vidic goes in for a challenge on Gabriel Giurgiu, it's late but it's a yellow card on any given Saturday afternoon in the Premier League but the referee deems the challenge a dangerous one and Vidic is shown a straight red.

63mins GOAL! Otelul Galati 0-1 Man Utd (Rooney pen.) An inexplicable handball by Sergfu Costin gifts United a golden opportunity to take the lead. Rooney spots the ball and sends the goalkeeper the wrong way to open the scoring.

62mins Great chance for Rooney who drags his shot horribly wide. Nani danced into the box down the inside right and picked out Rooney on the penalty spot. The England international took one touch and hit a shot on the turn but dragged it wide of the left hand post.

61mins Apologies for the lack of updates - minor technical issues. Don't worry, you've missed nothing of importance. United knocking the ball around without any real penetration, with Galati attempting to hit them on the counter whenever they get the opportunity. Not a great spectacle, surely only a matter of time before Sir Alex looks to his bench.

45mins A Galati corner is headed over the bar by Antal and the referee brings a rather damp first half to a close. Nil-nil at the break.

42mins Michael Carrick sends a long-range effort fizzing this close over the top of the crossbar. If United are going to score they're determined to do it in spectacular fashion.

39mins Rooney sends a long-ball to Valencia on the right wing. United are prodding and poking but the Galati defence has held firm so far and in truth, the visitors have looked short of ideas.

35mins United have been restricted to long-shots so far and Evra has another one but the angle is too acute and Grahovic saves at his near post.

30mins The home side have grown into this one but it's United with a shot on goal now. The Red Devils win a free-kick about 25-yards from goal. Rooney, Anderson and Nani all fancy it but it's the hirsute Englishman who steps up to curl a good effort roudn the Galati wall only to see Grahoovac get down well to his left to save.

26mins United's iffy defending presents Galati with a couple of decent opportunities. First, Frunzai punts a free-kick into the box from the left-hand side and a long-way up. There's an appeal for handball but the referee waves play on. United scamper the ball clear as far as Ion Filip who beats two, then three United players before slamming a decent effort over the bar from 20-yards.

20mins United controlling possession but without creating any clear opportunities. The away side looking a little suspect at the back, as they have all season in truth. Lindegaard punts a ball into Vidic's back before bouncing away to safety with nary a Galati player in sight. Let off.

15mins Anderson shoots wide from all of 25-yards.

14mins The ball finds Punosevic on the edge of the United area, he has Liviu Antal to his left but the youngster opts to have a pop himself but he's a little over-eager and his scuffed effort dribbles into Lindegaards welcoming gloves.

13mins First shot on goal for Galati when a poor pass from Nemanja Vidic finds Bratislave Punosevac, he fancies his chances but his shot is straight at Lindegaard

5mins United dominating the early exchanges, as expected really. Otelul look slightly overawed. They've lost their opening two matches, the home side, and tonight could be a long old evening. Antonio Valencia embarks on a little foray down the right, crossing for Fabio Silva but his ball out to Patrice Evra finds the Frenchman offside.

1min United get us underway, kicking from left to right in their away kit of navy and royal blue in front of a crowd of around 25,000 or so. Otelul in white shirts with red and blue stripes, white shorts, white socks.

1943 Not long to go now in what is a sparsely populated National Stadium. The United fans outnumber the locals by virtue of a. the large Romanian following United engender, b. over 1,000 travelling fans, and c. the 300-odd miles between here and Otelul's home ground. The Romanian side have been forced to switch their Champions League games to Bucharest, which is a shame, all things considered as it deprives the home side of the vital "12th man" a side's performance provides.
