Real Madrid vs. Manchester United – No love lost!
With the next round of the UEFA Champions League just round the corner, we decided to take a closer look at one of the big ties as we reach the last 16.
After Manchester United topped Group H to proceed through to the knockout stages of the tournament, you might have expected them to get an easier route through to the final by avoiding the giants still in the competition. However, as their noisy neighbours sailed out of the tournament with a 1-0 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund back in December, this result promoted the Germans to the top of Group D, and with it, dropped Real Madrid into 2nd place. As luck would have it, the draw grouped the two giants of English and Spanish football together for a mouth-watering clash starting on the 13th of February 2013 at the Santiago Bernabéu.
