The red card changed it, no doubt but United still had chances and Real took their rare ones. The one person who's got away with this amongst all the referee talk is Rafael. The way he had his back to Ronaldo, allowing him in the back post was criminal, absolutely criminal defending, especially given the score at the time. You can't turn your back on Ronaldo like that.
