Manchester United gained revenge for last year's 2-1 loss to Benfica in Lisbon that knocked it out of the UEFA Champions League at the group stage with a 1-0 win at the Estadio da Luz on Tuesday night.

United won the match on the second day of group play thanks to a stunning shot by French striker Louis Saha -- its first away win in the competition in nearly three years.

Arsenal and Lyon are the only other teams in Groups E-H with six points after two games.

The Gunners beat Porto, 2-0, at home. Alexandr Hleb and Thierry Henry scored in the night's other Anglo-Portuguese clash.

"The team has a lot of potential and is getting stronger in every game," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

Lyon, which defeated Real Madrid, 2-0, in its opening game at home, won, 3-0, at Steaua Bucharest. Brazilian forward Fred, Portuguese midfielder Tiago and young Frenchman Karim Benzema scored for the five-time defending French league champions.

Real Madrid got its first win in the Champions League campaign with a 5-1 victory over Dynamo Kiev. It was up, 3-0, at halftime on goals by Dutchman Ruud van Nistelrooy, captain Raul and Jose Antonio Reyes, and Raul and Van Nistelrooy each added another after the break.
