Man Utd's Ferdinand ready for Benzema showdown

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand admits he faces a big test tonight against Olympique Lyon star Karim Benzema.

"He got the ball, took a touch and, in one motion, opened up and scored. It was a fantastic finish," Ferdinand recalled of Benzema's strike in the first-leg of their Champions League clash.

"Hopefully tomorrow night we won't be giving him as much space to work with.

"In the Champions League you are always going to come up against players capable of doing that. How well you do against them usually decides who goes through."
