Real Food For Thought!

Last night tuning into the clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid proved to be an enlightening experience.

With Barcelona perceived as being the favourites to go through, Real Madrid, under the managerial skills of Jose Mourinho, produced a performance that will have given the watching Sir Alex Ferguson plenty of food for thought.

Real sat back, absorbed everything Barcelona could throw at them and then pounced, with great efficiency, to open up the Catalan side on the counter-attack.

More worryingly our ex-striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, showed that he remains the biggest danger to us progressing to the next stage of the Champions League with the Portuguese star scoring a brace.

Next week, at Old Trafford, could be one of the most enchanting fixtures for many a month but it could also be the most nail-biting we`ve witnessed for many a year, but let`s bring it on!

Said before this will be a tough match probably toughest of the season. I'm fully expecting to have no fingers never mind nails by the end.

How Real played against Barca is how we'll be setting out against them. They've got the better midfield and as such will expectedly dominate possession. We will look to expose their very fragile defence, par Varane, on the break. Hopefully we'll get a similar result to what Real did against Barca. However I still maintain I've got this horrible feeling it will end 2-2. I can't see Madrid not scoring at Old Trafford, especially if they want the Champions League more than what they want the Copa Del Rey. Will be a hard one to watch and I think I'll be joining MotorMad in the no fingers department let alone no nails. If we get through I reckon we've got a very good chance to go on and win it. Dortmund and Juventus are very good sides but if we can see Madrid off I'm confident we can cope with them. Barca look likely to go out at the moment but are more beatable now than ever in the event they do go through, still one of two I fear though. Bayern are just unbelievable at the moment and the only opposition that fill me with real dread.
