The match we've all been waiting for has finally arrived. Premier League leaders Manchester United travel to the Bernabeu to face Real Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16 1st Leg. Excited much?

I know there's no direct fantasy implications but this is such a huge clash that I thought it deserved it's own live chat thread.

Champions League knock-out stages.

Real Madrid vs Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho vs Sir Alex Ferguson.

Cristiano Ronaldo vs his former side.

Club football really doesn't get much bigger than this.

We'll have full team news as soon as it's available but there is already early journalist chatter on Twitter suggesting Shinji Kagawa and Phil Jones will both start for United tonight.

Until we see the teams it's quite difficult to make an accurate prediction my head is telling me Madrid will take this by a couple of goals. What the heck; I'll go for a 3-1 home win including a Ronaldo brace.

How do you see this one playing out?
