On Tuesday, March 5th, 2013, Real Madrid and Manchester United will be squaring off in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 match-up. This game, which will be hosted by Manchester United, will begin at 20.45 local time on Tuesday evening.

The first match between Real Madrid and Manchester United ended up a 1-1 tie, with Ronaldo scoring for Real Madrid and Welbeck scoring for Manchester United.

The two teams have played nine games against each other in the past, with Manchester United sporting a record of 2-4-3 and Real Madrid sporting a record of 3-4-2. Manchester United has a lifetime record of 11-18-15 against teams from Spain, while Real Madrid has a lifetime record of 10-9-10 against teams from England.

One of the biggest stories in Tuesday's game will be Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be making his return to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving the team. Ronaldo established himself as one of the best players in the world during his six-year tenure with Manchester United before leaving for Real Madrid.

One consideration for this game will be the energy levels of the players from Real Madrid. This will be their third match in the last eight days - Real Madrid also played two energy-sapping games in recent days against Barcelona (both games resulted in wins for Real Madrid). How much will they have left in the tank when they travel to Manchester United on Tuesday evening?

Despite the fact that the game is being played in Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, bookmakers are giving Real Madrid the slight edge. Here are the current betting odds:
