In the Champions League Round of 16 match we will have United traveling to face Marseille in the knock out stages and it will be interesting to see how the go about this match. United went there several years ago and lost to Marseille when Walliem Gallas scored for the home team. United are strong this time around and all of their big name players are in good form at the moment, with the likes of Rooney, Berbatov and Nani are playing very good football of late and Sir Alex must be hoping for a good result against them in the Champions League so that they can comeback to Old Trafford with some sort of lead and make thing easier for themselves.
