Moyes set for 1st taste of Champions League proper
MANCHESTER, England (AP) - David Moyes' experience in the Champions League amounts to two qualifying matches back in 2005, when he was manager of Everton.
He lost both games.
Moyes' pedigree in Europe is therefore under scrutiny as he makes his return to the competition eight years later at the helm of Manchester United.
And he is unlikely to be given an easy ride in the group stage after United was pitted with Bayer Leverkusen, Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Sociedad.
Moyes called predecessor Alex Ferguson after last month's draw, with his fellow Scot telling him "it's one of the hardest ... United have ever had in the Champions League.''
United opens its Group A campaign at home to Leverkusen on Tuesday. Shakhtar travels to Sociedad.
