Manchester United sinks in Greece
[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Tuesday] Manchester United sank to a new low, becoming the first of six seeded teams not to win the away leg in their UEFA Champions League
round-of-16 series with a 2-0 loss at Olympiakos. The two-goal deficit is not insurmountable but the manner of the performance will do nothing to change the storyline of what has been a miserable
first season for United manager David Moyes.
Argentine Alejandro Dominguez and Costa Rican Joel Campbell -- American fans will remember the Arsenal loan player from World Cup qualifying -- scored tremendous goals to give Olympiakos a two-goal win, its first
in five meetings with Manchester United.
Earlier on Tuesday, Borussia
Dortmund easily disposed of Zenit St. Petersburg, 4-2, at the Petrovsky Stadium, getting goals from Marco Reus and Henrikh
Mkhitaryan in the first five minutes and later two from Pole Robert Lewandowski.
