As for united, concede first and we could be in a lot of trouble - I'll say it again, we will regret RVP fluffing that volley.
Ronaldo had a header which he should have scored as well, could have easily been 2-2.

To be fair he was under pressure and RVP had a free volley with no one on him 6 yards from goal.

Both teams had other chances that could have gone in. Welbeck, Contreau etc.

I do indeed think RVP's misses will come back to haunt United. Typical that United's difference maker is potentially the reason you may go out. Mourinho will be thinking, remove United and with the possibility of Barcelona going out.....it well and truly could be on for him.

I just can't believe that David Villa is benched. He offers a more than genuine goalthreat to Iniesta up front on that wide left area, so removing Iniesta into midfield instead of Fabregas is the move I would make. Also Xavi is not the same player anymore. I have been saying it more than a year or so and doesn't impact and control games like he has done with ease in the past. I do think that Barcelona can turn the tie though. Milan away from home in europe are poor, just look back to last season when Arsenal were 4-0 down and then won 3-0 in the second leg.

So 2/8 are almost nailed on to get through, 3 more are looking okay, 2 have a chance, and only Barca are looking potentially out of it. Not bad predicting after one leg...these second legs will have some great football in them!

United are in a very dangerous position to be honest, no matter who scores first it doesn't look great. If they score first it means Madrid will come out of their cage and probably get the away goal smashing the game open, United will then have to chase it, knowing that they have to win the tie to go through with Madrid knowing a 2-2 draw or above would be enough. If Madrid score first, United have their away goals wiped away and need to chase the game leaving their defence open.

Whatever happens, Utd have done exceptionally well against a team that, the strikers aside, is much better on paper.

My prediction tonight because I'm biased:

Utd to go through

Funnily enough I past a betting shop that had "£10 on United 3-2 Madrid pays out £340" on the outside.

On a side note it'll be interesting to see who starts in goal for Real tonight.

I fear for United tonight, just got a feeling with Mourinho and Madrid. RVP's misses could be crucial from the first leg, stopping Ronaldo on the counter-attack is impossible over ninety minutes.

Just curious to know, if anybody knows, but what effect will Arsenal & Manchester United going out before the QF's do for the english coefficient ratings for the champions league. I remember hearing that this poor form shown by City over two years and Chelsea's exit along with United going out a the group stage last year means that the EPL could lose it's four CL slots by 2015. Any truth in this?

Almost no chance of that john

current coefficient scores are as follows

spain 85.168
England 79.392
Germany 76.328
Italy 62.314

the top 3 get 4 spots and then 4-6 get 3!

as you can see England are 17 pts above Italy in 4th, and the coefficent is based on 5 years totals.

in two years time the PL's coefficent will still be 12 pts above italy(by adding the last 3 years scores in total)

I dont even think its mathmatically possibly by 2015 tbh

Actually it is mathmatically possible- but by my very quick calculations italian clubs would need there best efforts for donkies in the next two years. man u and arsernal would have to lose this time and all 4 teams go out in the groups or close to next year.

Could be a masterstroke but Fergie has made some very odd decisions for this match.

Kagawa and Rooney out (best players at Norwich), Nani and Giggs in...

too sentimental with giggs and this appearance thing. got to get the job done and be professional, yes he trusts giggs but he's not 25 anymore......this is madrid. nani is extremely shocking, yes the boy's got talent but he's too inconsistant. maybe he's been told, produce tonight and you've got a new contract in the morning, wouldnt surprise me from fergie with his man management, could be a masterstroke, could easily blow up in his face.

rooney out is astonishing. i feared for united tonight, i fear even more now. should be one hell of a game

Massive gamble from Fergie. No rooney. RVP hasn't been 100% fit and is running the front line on his own. Nani is not a team player. Vidic has hardly played.

I'm massively suprised by this lineup but I suppose you just have to trust Fergie but I am a lot less confident than I was an hour or so ago.

Rooney out isn't much of a surprise to me. First half against Norwich he was abysmal, and 2nd half he profited from a tiring defence. Plus although he'll put in a shift he doesnt really produce in the "big" games.

I dont think we're in a position to question Sir Alex. I'm glad Giggs is playing. He'll be up to it. No problem.

Good first half from Utd. Gameplan perfect so far.

Years ago high boot used to be for head height for head injuries, now it's applied at chest height.

The thing is Nani is just trying to kick the ball. The opponent comes in from miles away, sprints to get there, then dives. Nani wasn't kicking at him at all. As I say never even a yellow card.

When I say dives that probably isn't right. I mean there is contact, but certainly made the most of it I mean.

Man U are in big trouble here because of the away goals rule. If Madrid score again in a minute they would need a miracle.
