The last time Real Madrid and Manchester United met in the Champions League, it ended up being an epic two leg battle, with one incredibly dominant performance at the Santiago Bernabeu and a legendary match at the Old Trafford. The first leg offers the same potential for thrills, and if you don’t know where to watch this game live, we’re here to help.
Real Madrid have had better seasons in the past, currently only third in the La Liga, four points behind Atletico Madrid (2nd) and a whopping 16 points behind Barcelona, which means the league title has been gone for a long time. In the Champions League, they came out second in a group that included Manchester City, Dortmund and Ajax. Cristiano Ronaldo led the team in scoring with 6 goals through the group stage, followed by Karim Benzema with 3.
Things are a bit simpler for Manchester United, leading the Premier League, 12 points ahead of Manchester City, not too far from already netting their first title of 2013. United finished first in a group that included Galatasaray, Braga and Cluj. They were led by both Javier Hernandez and Robin van Persie in the group stage, scoring three goals each.
