A return for Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United
Real Madrid fans have put their hopes on the Portuguese attacker to lead the club to UEFA Champions League glory. Club director Emilio Butragueno is certain that Cristiano Ronaldo, who won his only Champions League trophy under a Manchester United jersey back in 2008, will play a pivotal with the Red Devils being Los Blancos’ next opponents.
“I am sure it is going to be special game for him, he's a great professional so I am sure he is going to do his best to help Real Madrid to qualify. But yes, going back there is going to be very special for him.”

AC Milan will be hoping to continue with their impressive sudden revival when they take on Zenit Saint Petersburg at the San Siro stadium on Tuesday.
The Italian giants already assured themselves of a place in the Round of 16 stage of the UEFA Champions League in the previous round, and are expected to rotate their squad for this game.
The Rossoneri are gradually finding back their groove. They played with confidence, pace and creativity in last weekend’s 1-0 victory against Juventus. Looking at the performance Milan put in that encounter, it would be hard for anyone to accept that they are only 10th in the Italian Serie A table.
However, statistics tell that Allegri’s men have a lot of room for improvement. In their latest Serie A fixture, the Rossoneri had a pass success below the 80 per cent mark whereas they had no more than 39 per cent of ball possession.
Juventus travel to Milan on Sunday under different circumstances from last season, when the two teams were fighting for the title. The present day scenario is far different from last season’s photo finish. Milan trail Juve by 17 points and a title challenge would come across as a nocuous suggestion.
This Milan side is still without its regular fullbacks. Abate and Antonini are still side-lined due to injuries. Pato is a doubtful starter and Suley Muntari and Didac remain long term absentees.
Two of the most legendary soccer clubs in the world -- Italian Serie A’s AC Milan and Juventus – meet this Sunday, November 25 at 2:40 p.m. ET to continue their battle to edge up in one of the most tightly contested seasons in years.
It remains to be seen whether rising AC Milan star Stephan El Shaarawy can continue his league-leading scoring drive for the Rossoneri or if Juventus striker Stephan Lichtsteiner will continue to deliver for the team.

With Zenit grabbing a point from their 12:00pm EST fixture at home to Malaga, Milan needed to win to secure tickets into the Last 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The Rossoneri responded well to their mission. El Shaarawy maintained his scoring form by breaking the deadlock two minutes into the second period.
However, it was Philippe Mexes’ strike which seduced the public. The number 5 centre-back scored a daring overhead kick goal to put Milan 2-0 against Belgium giants Anderlecht in the 71st minute.
Alexandre Pato rounded up Milan’s victory with an easy tap in moments before the final whistle, leaving Mexes’ strike to be the talk of the night.
Is this amazing goal better than Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s overhead kick for Sweden against England? You decide!

Match day 5 will see a host of sides making it to the knockout stage, but there are a few hoping to spoil an early party. Arsenal will be keeping tabs on other matches as they prepare to take on French side Montpellier. A win should be enough for them to progress to the next stage, but a shock result could force them to battle it out against Olympiacos in the final group game.
The equation is much simpler for AC Milan as must perform or perish against Anderlecht. Just one point separates the two teams, and to make things interesting, there is just one slot available since Malaga has already qualified.
Group D dubbed as the group of death could see a few heads roll if Ajax and City lose their matches. However, miracles do happen in Manchester, case in point last season’s league title win, and it is either a quick exit from the group, or City might just live to die another day.
AC Milan travel to Belgium knowing that if they manage to rack up three points they would confirm their presence in the following stage of the competition.

Napoli hosted Milan on Matchday 13 of the Italian Serie A. The hosts went 2-0 inside the first 30 minutes with goals from Inler and Insigne. At that point, the Rossoneri looked set to endure their seventh defeat in the league.
However, key player El Shaarawy saved the day for his side. The Italian starlet scored a brace as Milan clinched a point in Napoli. The first strike, scored a minute before half-time, was particularly awesome.
