Real Madrid is also aware of the threat that Manchester United poses at Bernabeu. They have two of the best strikers of world football- Wayne Rooney and Van Persie. Persie has been playing to the best of his capabilities in the recent years. Madrid needs to put a strong check on him. Ramos, Madrid's central defender will have his work cut out while defending Persie.
Persie is not the only threat for Real Madrid, as Wayne Rooney also has a strong knack for scoring goals. He is one of the key players for Manchester United. He primarily controls the tempo of the game as well. Welbeck, another youngster, relatively unknown to Madrid but there has been several instances when he has brought laurels for Manchester United with his inspiring performances. He is quick, agile and good on the ball, which all augers well for Manchester United.
Both teams are going to go full throttle during the game, for they would not want to be under pressure when they play the return leg at Old Trafford, Real Madrid's home ground. Hence, the game should be an entertaining one for fans of both the teams as well as neutrals across the globe.
