Pic Special: Anzhi 0 Newcastle 0
Once again in Europe, Alan Pardew got his tactics spot on as Newcastle gained a useful 0-0 draw against Russian superclub Anzhi Makhachkala.
Samuel Eto'o and Co could find no way past a well-organised Magpies defence while Hatem Ben Arfa arguably had the best chance of the night when his chip was saved by Vladimir Gabulov.
That would have given United an important away goal but they're very much in the tie going into the second leg at St. James' Park next week.
And while there was not too much action at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Ian Horrocks brought nufc.co.uk this gallery.
