Uefa Champions League Live
Wed Feb 13, 6-10.15pm, Sky Sports 2
Wed Feb 6 2013
With the pointless, pre-Christmas cash-cow phase of the Champions League out of the way, now we get down to the red meat. This is where things start getting interesting. And tonight’s game is very interesting indeed. Real Madrid versus Manchester United is a lipsmacking tie under any circumstances – but the likely presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Real ranks makes it potentially unmissable.
Real are struggling in domestic football, languishing in a frankly humiliating third place in La Liga – behind Athletico Madrid, no less. Still, this isn’t a vintage United side either – they’re running away with the Premier League, but that’s more to do with the inadequacies of their rivals than their own strengths. A fascinating prospect – this is the kind of occasion the Champions League was invented for. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.
