Ferguson delighted as Man Utd superb in Kiev

Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney gave Untied a flying start with Cristiano Ronaldo adding a brace as the Old Trafford outfit completed their biggest European away success in nine years.

Victory in the re-match, on home soil in a fortnight, will seal a spot in the last 16 with two games to spare.

And on this evidence, there is little to stop it happening,.

"Our forward play at the moment is excellent," said Ferguson, whose side have now scored 12 times in their last three games.

"Some of our movement was excellent and although the finishes were easy, you have to be there to take them.

"To score four goals away from home in Europe represents a good performance at any time and we could even have had more.

"With people like Rooney, Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez and Ryan Giggs we have great ammunition.

"We have nine points now and that puts us in a very strong position."

Although Diogo Rincon and Ismael Bangoura found the net for Dynamo, with Ronaldo slotting home twice in the middle of those two strikes, the result was never in doubt.

Aside from the Carling Cup defeat to Coventry, United have now won 10 games on the trot, and appear to be hitting form at just the right time.

"Dynamo probably caught us at the wrong time," said Ferguson.

"Our form is strong now, much stronger than it was in our previous matches in this competition."
