It's not over, not by a long shot.
It is, however, a very good start.
Manchester United are half-way to the Champions League Quarter Final after their heroic performance at the Bernabeu last night against Real Madrid. The game finished 1-1, United coming up with a vital away goal in a game which was as frantic and fascinating as we all hoped it would be.
The hype surrounding this game was extraordinary, mainly due to Cristiano Ronaldo playing against the Club that had sold him to Real Madrid for a world record fee of £80 million ($124.9m) for the first time. Ronaldo often speaks of his admiration for his former club, the fans and the manager and even teases the United fans with the prospect that one day he could possibly return. Ronaldo has thrived since moving to Spain to become arguably the most complete player in the World. There is no dispute that Lionel Messi and himself are the two best in the World currently. Could he put his emotions to one side and come up with the performances to guide Madrid into the Quarter-Finals.
