UEFA Champions League: Real Madrid vs Manchester United: Live Open Thread

UEFA

A live thread to discuss the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash between Manchester United and Real Madrid - oh, and Dortmund vs Shakhtar if anyone is watching :)

Let's be honest, this is the match we have all been waiting for. Sure, we can't wait for Barcelona to kick-off against AC Milan, but this is the tie of the round. Real Madrid vs Manchester United; quite simply, what a tie. And for Barcelona fans, what timing as well. Thanks to Borussia Dortmund - who are also in action today against Shakhtar Donetsk - Real Madrid failed to top their group, and they paid a heavy price. Maybe they will find a way past Manchester United; but if they do, it's likely to come at a cost. After all, with such a thin squad, even the Special One will struggle to mastermind Los Blancos to victory in both the La Liga and Copa del Rey Clasico and defeat Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Line-Ups:

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Jones, Carrick, Kagawa, Welbeck, Rooney, Van Persie

Real Madrid: Lopez, Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Coentrao, Khedira, Ozil, Alonso, Di Maria, Ronaldo, Benzema

BVB: Weidenfeller - Piszczek, Santana, Hummels, Schmelzer - Kehl, Bender - Blaszczykowski, Götze, Reus – Lewandowski

Shakhtar: Pyatov, Raţ, Chygrynskiy, Rakitskiy, Hübschman, Fernandinho, Alex Teixeira, Srna, Luiz Adriano, Mkhitaryan, Taison.
