…reports from the Ukrainian capital last night suggest that their supporters have taken this spirit literally.
Sir Alex, "The intention will be for us to win the match because the rewards are great. We expect Kiev to be really positive about the game and have a go, but we see it as an opportunity for us with the double header against them. We want to get some points from the two games that would put us in a great position. Obviously you get selfish and you want to win here, with Roma and Sporting Lisbon drawing. It doesn't always work that way. The best thing to do is approach your own game with the right attitude and win it. Hopefully we'll do that here.
"Kiev have some talented players. They were unlucky against Sporting Lisbon. They had some chances and should have won that game."
