After a lackluster and drab performance in the first leg, Manchester United host Olympique Marseille in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16, at Old Trafford.

The two teams played a scoreless match in Marseille, and Tuesday's meeting will be a battle of the Red Devils' potent offense against Les Phoceens' stingy defense.

Both clubs are coming off momentous victories.

Manchester United pulled off a 2-0 win at Old Trafford against Premier League rivals Arsenal in FA Cup action on Saturday. Marseille defeated second-place Rennes 2-0 in an important La Ligue 1 match on Friday.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson received some very good news on the injury front. Portuguese wing Nani has made an unexpectedly speedy recovery and will be available Tuesday.

Ferguson was also pleased with Antonio Valencia's fitness. The Ecuadorian midfielder returned from a severe ankle injury to play 45 minutes against Arsenal, prompting Ferguson to now juggle how he wants to use the wing who has shown flashes of brilliance in his career.

As for Marseille, manager Didier Deschamps has a weapon in Mathieu Valbuena. The midfielder might be making a move to Manchester United when the season is over, and is currently recovering from a knee injury. He will likely be a substitute in Tuesday's match.

Also, forward Andre-Pierre Gignac, who had been hobbled in recent weeks, played 71 minutes versus Rennes.

Manchester United has never lost to a French team at Old Trafford.
