Only one Premier League has had more than the 10 goals that where scored at Old Trafford today. Name the teams and the result.
Reports from the Libyan capital Tripoli claim that Muammar Gaddafi’s third son Al-Saadi Gaddafi has been captured by rebels. Gaddafi Jr. enjoys his football and has captained the national team and was president of the Libyan football federation. He has tried his luck in Italy playing one match for Serie A club Perguia before failing a drug test. He was also a member of the board of Juventus where a Libyan consortium own 7.5%.
20-8-1971 Manchester United played their first home match of the 1971-72 season at Anfield in Liverpool. United had to play their first two matches away from Old Trafford due to hooliganism at the end of the previous season. The league game at
Anfield was played on a Friday evening in front of a crowd of 27,649. United won the game against Arsenal 3-1. The Gunners took an early lead through Frank McLintock, but goals by Gowling, Kidd and Charlton secured a home win.
The next morning The Guardian reported these scenes before the game:
“As soon as the teams arrived on the field the Kop vomited scores of young ‘supporters’ of both sexes who ran down the field to the end where United were warming up. The police, although hopelessly outnumbered, did their best and removed as many as they could capture. When the invaders discovered that United would attack the Kop end they retraced their steps and suffered further losses.”
Two moments of magic by Barcelona’s Lionel Messi resulted in a 0-2 victory in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final in Madrid. Messi netted his 51st and 52nd goals of the season and set up a probable final between Barca and Manchester United at Wembley in May.
