Real Madrid beat Barcelona again today for the 2nd time in just 5 days and even left Ronaldo on the bench for the 1st hour!

Man Utd on the other hand had an easy romp at home against Norwich but Van Persie seems to be struggling a bit with injuries.

I have a feeling at the moment that Los Blancos will just be too good for the Mancs and will score at least 1 or 2 away goals at OT.

Any more comments or predictions for this 2nd leg clash?

As usual i think Man u may bottle it yet again against a big named european side! It's just a weakness in their dna that they seem to buy into the paper hype and wake up the day of the game i a cold sweat. The only time they far well is against their premiership rival due to the familiarity. personally i think MAn u are better equipped to win this match and players such as Ozil and Kediera should have a chance on the same pitch. The only threat Real offer is down the wings and if Marcelo is on top of his game.
I really don;t see anyone that has played in the last few man u games that has the ability to gather the players round when Real goes ahead and keep them focussed like a Ferdinand ,who i think must start this game if he's fit.
If they don't have that fatherly voice keeping them on point when times get tough it could get ugly.
