As Europe awaits the clash of two titans in the shape of Manchester United and Real Madrid, we`ve a few statistics to whet your appetite.

If United are to come away from Madrid with a good chance of progressing to the next stage of Europe`s premier competition, then we might need to reverse a trend that has seen us concede the first goal in our last 5 Champions League fixtures.

Also, we may have to put a dent in Real Madrid`s home scoring record which has seen them only fail to score once in their last 31 Champions League games.

A successful evening in Madrid would se us reverse a records that has seen us fail to win on our last four visits with Real Madrid having won 2 and drawn 2

The scene has been set!
