Manchester United vs Juventus. These are the Champions League games that you look forward too.
Old Trafford under the floodlights in a huge European fixture is always pretty special, I’m expecting tomorrow to be no different. The game itself will undoubtedly be a close, tight-knit affair between two top quality sides.
This one is special for another reason, too. Cristiano Ronaldo will play at the Theatre of Dreams in Juventus colours for the first time. Today, he returned to his old stomping ground as he prepares to take on the club that helped make him who he is today.

Ronaldo will always be considered a legend around these parts. He came here and won absolutely everything there is to be won. I remember that goofy-looking teenager who joined United way back when, even then, he had all the talent in the world.
Over the next decade-and-a-half, Ronaldo has turned into arguably the greatest footballer of all time. He’s done it in two countries at the highest level, now he’s trying his hand in Italy. No doubt he’ll enjoy immense success with the Old Lady, but let’s hope tomorrow night is one that United are celebrating, rather than Juventus…
