Ronaldo backs Real to take United scalp - Champions League Betting

cristiano-ronaldoCristiano Ronaldo has backed Real Madrid to see off his former club Manchester United, when the Spanish giants continue their bid for a record tenth European crown.

The pair meet in the last 16 of the Champions League, with Real hoping to make up for a faltering league campaign by mounting a challenge in Europe, with their ninth title having come just over a decade ago.
If we play the way we are capable of, we can beat them.Cristiano Ronaldo
Last season Real lost out on penalties to Bayern Munich in the semi-finals and Ronaldo is desperate to do better this term, starting by disposing of United.
"Every Madridista wants that tenth European Cup - we are more than aware of that," Ronaldo told FIFA.com. "Last season we fell just short, which was very frustrating.
"The fact we face Manchester United next makes it more difficult. It is not going to be easy and I reckon the odds are about 50-50, but I am still very confident."
"If we play the way we are capable of, we can beat them."
Real and United have met in two previous ties in the Champions League era, with the Spaniards coming out on top in both 1999-2000 and 2002-03.
Madrid are 5.50 to win the Champions League this season, with United 13.00 and Barcelona 3.00.
