The first leg was 90 minutes of pure entertainment and United took the lead through Danny Welbeck, but a towering header from Cristiano Ronaldo levelled the scores.
Although the Red Devils have an away goal, Real will still be confident that they can score at Old Trafford and progress to the final eight.
Sir Alex Ferguson would have been delighted with the way his men performed at the Bernabeu and since then, they have won all three of their matches and stuck four past Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.
Ferguson started both Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie last time out, which might have surprised a few as they are likely to be in the starting eleven for this encounter as well. Van Persie hasn’t scored since February 10, which is a long time for him given the form he has been in.
The Dutchman will be desperate to get on the score-sheet on Tuesday evening and show the world just how good he is on the biggest stage.
United have dominated English football this campaign and with how they performed in Madrid last month, should be confident that they can reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League. With the attacking players Real have, it is going to be tough, but Manchester United are more than capable of winning here. They are currently at 2/1 to come out on top inside 90 minutes.
Jose Mourinho has happy memories of Old Trafford of course from his time in charge of Porto. His side scored late on to seal their place in the next round of the Champions League and Mourinho ran all the way down the touchline to celebrate with his players.
That night in 2004 was where Mourinho really made his name as a manager and you wouldn’t rule out him doing something similar this time out if his men seal a victory.
The La Liga champions come into this one full of confidence as well after beating their bitter rivals Barcelona twice in a matter of days.
Ronaldo stole the show last Tuesday, getting himself a brace at the Nou Camp, but he was rested for the match over the weekend, so will be chomping at the bit to get on the pitch this time out.
It is sure to be an emotional evening for the Portugal captain as he is heading back to where he made his name as a player and he is likely to get a good reception from the supporters on Tuesday evening. Unsurprisingly, Ronaldo is the 4/1 favourite to break the deadlock here.
The atmosphere inside Old Trafford is going to be electric for this one and with the way these two have played this season, we should be treated to an extremely entertaining evening and it has the potential to go all the way to penalties. Kick-off is at 7.45PM.
