Couple of cracking free-kicks from Bale tonight, he's in the best form of his career without a doubt.

But never take anything for granted with Mourhinho. His Porto drew at home to UTD then against all expectations beat them at Old Trafford.
For me it's too close to call, but if I had to bet on it I'd go with UTD as the odds are in their favor now, but my gut is telling me Jose might yet have the last laugh.
The only thing I would be surprised by is if either team got blown away in the second leg, I think it'll go down to the wire and be decided by one goal either way.

I think we'll need to be measured, try and control the tempo better than we did when we got the ball at the Bernabeu, especially for the first half. If we can do that and Madrid get more desperate in chasing the goal then we can utilize out counter attack.
