Ronaldo finally returns to Old Trafford!

It's going to be one hell of a game and I for one am really looking forward to it!

Manchester United v Real Madrid, Sir Alex v Mourinho, Ronaldo v RVP, Valencia v Di Maria, Rooney v Ozil, Carrick v Alonso, De Gea v Casillas

If United played Madrid right now, they would win. Madrid's form and motivation are really poor. Their defence is highly vulnerable. There would be a bunch of goals but United would take it.

However Madrid have got 2 months to get back in form. It'll surely be more difficult by then.

If Madrid qualify for the spanish cup semi final they will play Barca - United - Barca - United - Barca.

what a draw this year! I like both United and Madrid and it's really sad to see 1 has to go home so early! damn Galatasaray got it easy and they were 2nd in the group!

Barca vs Milan will be a huge one too!

wantedboys1378d ago

both Madrid and man united are f*****

I`m trying to understand your word. They are? Fucked? It still doesn`t make any sense.

My thought process:

Arsenal vs Ba...

"I fuh qing knew it!"

..yern Munich

"See? I fu...wait, what?"

imtiyaz61378d ago

I wasn't surprised at all. I kinda knew we'd be facing either Barca, Bayern, Juve or Dortmund. We've always been unlucky in the draws.

no_more_heroes1378d ago

I thought it would be between those teams as well, but I was dead certain that out of those options we'd be paired with Barcelona AGAIN.

Arsenal have little hope against anyone they are drawn anyway :-/ only Malaga realistically would give Arsenal a chance. Munich will walk over Arsenal no problems. Especially away from home in europe Arsenal are hugely shaky and only got through their group because of how weak it was.

Schalke won it, and they are in 7th in the Bundesliga! Munich are already running away with the title.

Arsenal can buy in January but any top quality they manage to buy will no doubt be cup tied in the Champions League.

What an amazing draw for Arsenal and Man. United.
Arsenal need a CDM and I hope Diaby is back in February. Another striker may be needed as well since we don't know how the Walcott situation will end. Injuries may play a role too......Oddly enough I don't feel that nervous as I thought I would. I was fearing Dortmund more than even Barca this time.
Man. United IMO has a equally or even tougher match. They need to do something about that defense and maybe reinforce the midfield......Upfront they should be fine against any team.

I'm reading also that this draw was also the exact same as the rehearsal draw the day before.

Holy coincidences, Batman!

...or is it?
