Manchester United's season is on the verge of self-destruction, but if they can pull out a result from the abyss against Olympiakos, perhaps the vultures can be staved off a little while longer.

It's a sad indictment of a shocking season under David Moyes, but it's the truth: Lose on aggregate against the Greek champions, and all hell will likely break loose.

The Red Devils trail 2-0 from the first leg, so can they turn it around? Join us for what we hope is a true goal-fest, and check in on our live player ratings—updated at half-time and full time.

B/R UK

De Gea: Did very little of note for long periods, then pulled out a world-class double-save to rescue United's hopes.

Rafael: Gave the ball away a few times, but had some good runs ignored by ball-players too.

Jones: Had an absolute nightmare coping with Joel Campbell. Improved in the second half.

Ferdinand: Solid enough; the action was quiet on his side.

Evra: Threatened with a great header in the first half; a good attacking presence on the left, but suspect defensively. Committed a very poor challenge and will miss the second leg.

Valencia: Played on despite taking a big hit to the head; Strong in the run but poor in his decision-making.

Carrick: Recycled the ball well, but did very little to influence the game.

Giggs: Played some nice balls and broke up play rather well. Impressive from the veteran.

Welbeck: Threatened over the top early on, but his influence waned. His touch let him down.

Rooney: Played a varied role that saw him pop up in plenty of different areas; Effective, and claimed two assists.

Van Persie: Smashed home his penalty well and played on the shoulder of the defence. Slotted a second past Roberto with aplomb and converted a free-kick for his hat-trick.
