Wayne Rooney scored Manchester United's first goal of the 2013-14 Champions League season at Old Trafford.

The head-banded one met Patrice Evra's left-wing cross to put United ahead against Bayer Leverkusen midway through the first half.

 

It was Rooney's second Old Trafford goal in four days, following his fine free-kick in United's 2-0 win against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
