Manchester United fans are in for a treat this weekend as Virgin Media Sport are set to broadcast ten hours of their classic moments in European Cup competitions.

With the country on lockdown and live sport at a standstill, United fans can look forward to at least some temporary respite with a bumper weekend of action on the cards.

On Friday, Virgin Media Sport begin with two of United‘s most recent famous European nights, starting with their comeback win over PSG in the Champions League last 16 from 2019 followed by their Europa League win in 2017.

On Saturday, it’s the turn of two of their European Cup final victories, the first coming against Benfica in 1968 followed by their penalty shoot-out win over Chelsea in the 2008 Champions League final in Moscow.

To finish the weekend, Virgin Media Sport are showcasing two games from United’s 1999 treble-winning season, the first being their Roy Keane-inspired semi-final win over Juventus, with the second being their iconic late comeback victory over Bayern Munich in the final.
