Manchester United take on Real Madrid in the European Super Cup tonight – we take a look back at when we won the trophy back in 1991.
In one of the most memorable European games at Old Trafford, the game was a one-off affair instead of the then-usual format of a two-legged tie, due to political unrest in Yugoslavia.
Red Star played every inch like the European Champions they were after recovering from an early hiccup where they conceded a penalty; thankfully for them, the goalkeeper saved Steve Bruce’s effort. Belgrade then proceeded to dominate the game but in the 67th minute Brian McClair scored the game’s only goal.
After defeating Barcelona in the Cup Winners’ Cup Final, and now Red Star, United’s players felt like the best in Europe, and who could blame them?
