Paul Scholes header was enough for Manchester United to begin their 2009-2010 Champions League campaign with 3 points, beating Turkish side Besiktas 1-0 with the redhead’s goal coming in the 77th minute. United were the more dominant side for most of the match but the Turkish side did have a few chances, with only one of them coming really close. Michael Owen, who came in for Rooney in the 64th minute almost poked in a second goal, but Alex Ferguson will be happy with the result, as English sides don’t always fare so well in Turkey.
