After draw in the first match (1:1), Murinho’s players demonstrated their power collected four won matches in a row.
They gained a lot of morale by beating Barcelona again and we think they can continue their winning row by beating Man Utd in the second leg. In the last match against Barcelona, Real showed their strength with 13 goal attempts (8 of them were shots on goal). Cristiano Ronaldo plays fantastic and with him in team Real can beat everyone. In the last match against Barca, Mourinho had rest some of his key players and they all will be in the starting line-up against United. Real Madrid, under Jose Murinho, have lost only two of 15 away fixtures in the Champions League.
United continue to dominate in England humiliating Norwich 4:0 in the Premier League. In the starting line-up will return Rio Fedrinand and together with Jonny Evans will try to keep a clean sheet. Bad news for United could be absence of Phil Jones (an ankle injurie). He done the fantastic marking job on Cristiano Ronaldo in the first leg.
Real Madrid have to attack from the 1st minute and to score if they want to go through the 1/4 final, which can be very dangerous for their defenders with great United attackers.
