Manchester United are through to the Champions League quarter finals after beating Olympiakos 3-0, giving them a 3-2 aggregate win. Robin Van Persie scored all three of the English side's goals.

Van Persie struck from the penalty spot in the 25th minute after he had been fouled by Jose Holebas.

The Dutchman then added a second in first-half injury-time with a tidy finish from Wayne Rooney's cross, coming just five minutes after David De Gea had pulled off a fine double save to deny David Fuster and then Alejandro Dominguez.

Van Persie completed his hat-trick seven minutes into the second half with a free-kick into the left-hand corner.
