Inter defeated Real Madrid on penalties Saturday before losing this match between traditional European powers looking to rebound from sub-par seasons last year.

Inter finished fifth in their 2013-14 Serie A campaign, while United was seventh a year after winning the Premier League in manager Alex Ferguson’s final season.

United created the majority of chances throughout regulation. It came closest to scoring when Samir Handanovic made a diving stop on Jonny Evans’ header in the 11th minute.

The game attracted a crowd of 61,238, and most wore United’s Red and White. But the loudest ovation during pregame introductions went to Inter Milan defender Nemanja Vidic, who joined the squad this season after eight-and-a-half years with United.
