Real Madrid and Manchester United bosses feel second leg of UEFA Champions League tie could go either way at Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho both left Estadio Santiago Bernabeu with some satisfaction last night, with each feeling that they have as good a chance of progression.
The second leg is at Old Trafford on March 5th, and it could be argued that both Manchester United and Real Madrid hold the advantage.
Manchester United of course have a single away goal, and so from the kickoff it is Real Madrid who have to attack. A 0-0 scoreline of course would see the Red Devils progress.
However, if Real Madrid score two away goals, Manchester United must score three times at Old Trafford in order to avoid being eliminated on away goals themselves.
Make no mistake – this tie is firmly in the balance. Cristiano Ronaldo’s wonderful header and Robin Van Persie’s missed chances could prove crucial.
