EUFA Champions League: Real Madrid Vs Man U

Two European football heavyweights Real Madrid FC and Manchester United FC will today square off in the Spanish capital in a champions league game which has captured the imagination of a global sporting audience.

Real Madrid are said to be the most successful side in the history of the European Cup, however, they have not lifted the trophy for 11 years now.

Jose Mourinho's men have been forced to make the Champions League their top priority this season, as the La Liga title is now out of their reach.

In contrast, our dear Man U are heading into this midweek action 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and unbeaten in all competitions since 5th December - a 14-match unbeaten run.

This two-legged knockout tie  is a big occasion for both Real Madrid and Manchester United, with a managerial duel between Mourinho and Sir Alex Fergsuon.

This will be Cristiano Ronaldo's first outing against Man U since leaving England for Santiago Bernabeu in 2009 providing intriguing subplots.

Paul Scholes' vast experience will be missing from Manchester United's midfield due to a knee injury. 

Man U expected squard 
Lindegaard, De Gea, Amos, Rafael, Smalling, Evans, Vidic, Ferdinand, Jones, Buttner, Evra, Cleverley, Giggs, Anderson, Carrick, Kagawa, Young, Nani, Valencia, Hernandez, Rooney, Welbeck, Van Persie.
