LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) - Robin van Persie and Nemanja Vidic will both miss Manchester United's Champions League match against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday.

Van Persie has a groin injury and Vidic is still not being risked after being concussed against Arsenal earlier this month.

United will secure a place in the last 16 with a victory in the Group A match.
