Guadalajara Chivas has inaugurated its new US$150 million stadium with a 3-2 exhibition victory over Manchester United, in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The star of Friday's match was Mexican Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

Hernandez moved from Chivas to Manchester United over the summer but he played the opening 45 minutes for his old team, scoring the game's first goal in the 8th minute on a bouncing 20-metre shot.

Chris Smalling equalized for Manchester United a minute later, but Adolfo Bautista gave Chivas a 2-1 lead in the 38th and Hector Reynoso made it 3-1 on a header in the 59th.

Nani narrowed the lead to 3-2 in the 80th. Hernandez played the second half with Manchester United but had few chances in front of a sellout of 45,000.
