I've been trying to wrap my head around this, maybe it's because I'm not a native speaker but I cannot tell when an ellipsis is appropriate and when not, unless it's REALLY obvious.
Wrong: French wines taste better than Australian wines- What is ambiguous about that?
Manchester United played better than Real Madrid- Is that also wrong? Why, why not?
When can I compare action and leave out the 2nd verb without making the sentence ambiguous?

Thanks!
