A Few Statistics!

A Few Statistics!

As Europe awaits the clash of two titans in the shape of Manchester United and Real Madrid, we`ve a few statistics to whet your appetite.

If United are to come away from Madrid with a good chance of progressing to the next stage of Europe`s premier competition, then we might need to reverse a trend that has seen us concede the first goal in our last 5 Champions League fixtures.

Also, we may have to put a dent in Real Madrid`s home scoring record which has seen them only fail to score once in their last 31 Champions League games.

A successful evening in Madrid would se us reverse a records that has seen us fail to win on our last four visits with Real Madrid having won 2 and drawn 2

The scene has been set!

Can't see any statistics having any bearing on how this game will pan out. I hate to concede it but I do reckon we'll be the ones going out. No doubt Madrid will boost their ego and strut around like they're something special if they do knock us out but the reality is we're getting Real Madrid at 100%, their season par the Champions League is already effectively over. In contrast we're still focusing on two other competitions and can't afford put in half-arsed performances knowing we're guarenteed a top four finish like Madrid can. The positives we can take coming into this game is there's still unrest within the Madrid team, Casillas isn't playing, they're still not at their best defensively and still suspect at set pieces and their form isn't the greatest coming into the game.
