Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the pressure will be on Jose Mourinho when Real Madrid and Manchester United clash in the Champions League in midweek.
Mourinho has seen his Real side fail to mount a Primera Liga title challenge, adding extra importance to their Champions League campaign, a competition which the Portuguese has already won with FC Porto and Inter Milan.
He'd be the only person to win the European Cup with three different teams.Sir Alex Ferguson
Ferguson turned up the heat ahead of the last-16 tie first leg in the Bernabeu on Wednesday by saying: "Their target is the European Cup this year.
"They got a bad start in the league and they're chasing their tails because Barcelona's form is incredible. So I think Jose has set his sights on the European Cup this year, there's no doubt about that.
"He'd be the only person to win the European Cup with three different teams, so it's a fantastic challenge for him.
"I think the European Cup has always been important to him. There's no secret to his desire to win the European Cup."
Real are 1.66 to win the first leg on home turf on Wednesday, while they are 1.61 to reach the last eight at the expense of United and 5.50 to go on and win the competition for the tenth time in their history.
