Last night, in front of 85,000 supporters, United and Real played out a classic encounter.

After the game, Sir Alex Ferguson, in his post-match interview, spoke about the tie and how we still need to show a degree of caution, at Old Trafford, on March 5th, remarking,

“The players battled hard and it is a good result for us.”

“The tie is very open but I`m sure we`ll score at Old Trafford. We still have a big job on our hands but it is definitely within our grasp.”

“Real are a great counter-attacking side and will be very dangerous because they have a lot of good players.”


Indeed they do and last night we had to be at our very best to ensure that our defences weren`t breached a second time, after Cristiano Ronaldo had gotten Real back on level terms!

March 5th, at Old Trafford, looks like it could be another night to savour!
