The Champions League round of 16 second legs return this week and Manchester United entertain Real Madrid at Old Trafford this evening in what is set to be a superb encounter.
The score is currently tied at 1-1, so United do have the away goal, but Real will also be confident they can progress to the final eight.
A lot of eyes will of course be on Cristiano Ronaldo for this one as he is returning to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving United in 2009. The Portugal captain was Real’s scorer in the first leg as he leapt over Patrice Evra and scored a header right out of the top drawer.
His reception from the home fans is sure to be a good one, but with the way Ronaldo is playing right now, he might not be in too many good books come the final whistle. He is at 5/1 to score to goals or more.
Of course Real Madrid are not a one-man team as they do have quality all over the pitch with players such as Mezut Ozil, Xabi Alonso and Sergio Ramos all sure to be in action.
Jose Mourinho is likely to have a game plan for this encounter as well and if his men can execute it, then they should reach the quarter-finals. The Portuguese has already said that he won’t be running down the touchline if his side score in the closing stages, but you can be sure that he will be just as passionate as he was back in 2004.
Manchester United are one of the form teams in Europe right now, especially on home soil as they have lost just twice at Old Trafford in all competitions this campaign.
Sir Alex Ferguson might be 71-years-old, but he will be just as excited and determined to win this match as he was back in the early stages of his career.
Ferguson needs his big name players – such as Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney – to perform if they are to have any chance of winning this one. Van Persie is a 5/1 shot to break the deadlock, with Rooney at 7/1.
Remaining solid at the back is also key and if he has Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic available, that is a big boost for the Scotsman.
The Red Devils look to be as hungry as ever for titles this campaign and if they manage to beat Real this evening, will fancy their chances of going all the way to Wembley and lifting the Champions League trophy. As they are on home soil, you have to say that United look like good value to win on the night at 23/10.
Both of these teams have scored a lot, but also conceded plenty of goals this campaign and with Real Madrid having no choice but to come out and attack as they need to find the net, it should be a very entertaining match.
It is difficult not to get excited about this one as two of the world’s most famous clubs lock horns in the biggest club competition on offer. It all gets underway from 7.45PM.
