Sami Hyypia was having a very good season. Bayer Leverkusen were yet to be beaten at home, when Wayne Rooney & Co. decided to spoil their party. Manchester United not only beat Leverkusen, but destroyed their morale and demolished the club’s self-esteem. No better words to describe a 5-0 thrashing in their own backyard.
What was supposed to be Bayer’s night when a single point would have been enough to secure their place in the knockout rounds of Champions League, turned into a nightmare as they are now faced with the possibility of finishing in 3rd place. Matchday 6 will see them play against Real Sociedad in Spain, where even a win would not guarantee a knockout place.
