Fans of Manchester United and Real Madrid were in good spirits on the streets of Manchester on Tuesday (March 5) ahead of a crunch Champions League clash between the two sides at Old Trafford. Fans made the most of the sunny weather in the build up to the match which will see the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to United for the first time since his move to Spain. The last-16 tie between the two European giants is equally balanced after last month's 1-1 draw in the first leg. "I think it's going to be a draw, full time, penalties. I think it's going to be that close, too difficult to call I think," one United fan, Mr Lindford, told Reuters. "I do think that the first game in Madrid was very good for Manchester United. It wasn't by chance, it was very good work by Sir Alex, and that's why they have a good chance, good work by Sir Alex this evening," said Samson, who has travelled from Israel to see the match. "United have been in good form too and it's at Old Trafford so we have hope," added Tina from Sweden. Kick off is at 2:45 PM ET. Video Source: Reuters
