Football Preview: A clash of the Titans (Madrid vs Manchester)

“What’s that? Cristiano thinks he can score tonight? Don’t make me laugh!”

Two footballing behemoths take each other on tonight- Real Madrid and Manchester United. Now, I realise releasing my preview/prediction mere hours before kick-off could make me seem quite foolish afterwards but then I thought that I always seem foolish.. so on with the post!

Now, a lot has been made of the main men Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie on either side, but I’d like to concentrate on what I think will be the crucial matchup of the night: Kagawa vs Ozil. Shinji Kagawa has begun to hit his stride in Manchester with a hat trick on Saturday but tonight he comes up against one of the top playmakers in the world in Mesut Ozil. The German has had a fantastic eighteen months loading bullets into the lethal finishing gun that is Cristiano Ronaldo and if he can continue that form tonight then Real will be unstoppable. On the other hand, Kagawa brings more of a running threat to what is not the paciest of defenses for Real, as both Ramos and Pepe can lack athleticism at times. Of course, the Japanese might not even be selected to night in favour of the much less effective Ryan Giggs, who would make his 1000th United appearance but should most likely hang up his boots now.

In my personal view, Real Madrid will win 2-1, with goals from Ronaldo and Angel di Maria either side of a Robin van Persie goal. I think with the form that Real are in they can hardly fail and the stakes are also very high due to their failure in the league. Manchester are happy to win the league and whilst they’ll put up more of a fight than Joey Barton on a night out, Manchester won’t take the victory.

So that’s my opinion, but what do you think? Leave a comment below with your opinion and please like and follow if you want to see more!
