UEFA Champions League Preview:



Hello again everyone, and welcome to my latest blog post where I have a preview with Analysis for 2 of the 8 UEFA Champions League Last 16 2nd Leg Ties, Manchester United vs Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund vs Shakthar Donetsk.

Tonight - Manchester United (1) vs Real Madrid (1):

This is part 2 of the epic encounter between two of the best teams in the world. In part 1, we saw Ronaldo steal the headlines after an amazing header were he flew into the air like a rocket and beat De Gea.

English striker Danny Welbeck was under critiscm from many United fans, whether he should play or not, but proved doubters wrong with a crucial away goal for Sir Alex Ferguson's men to take back to Manchester.

The 2nd leg will be played at Old Trafford tonight, as United look to pull off a slight upset over the favourites for the tie - despite having an away goal.
De Gea will be once again important for The Red Devils, looking to prevent Ronaldo, Di Maria, Benzema and Ozil from scoring tonight.

Do not forget however the strikeforce of Rooney, van Persie and Welbeck.

Tonight - Borussia Dortmund (2) vs Shakthar Donetsk (2):

Dortmund will certainly have the advantage going into this match....

Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels ensured that the tough German side took 2 away goals away from Ukraine, and they should have enough quality to press Shakthar on the counter with Gotze, Reus, Kuba and Lewandowski.
