Ronaldo aiming to score in showdown against rival Man Utd

CRISTIANO Ronaldo returns to Old Trafford tomorrow morning for the first time since his move to Real Madrid in 2009 and the Portuguese star has one goal - to score against Manchester United.

The Red Devils and Real Madrid collide in the Champions League second-leg in the round of 16 - the two super powers could not be separated in the first leg in Spain three weeks ago, the game ending 1-1.

Ronaldo was on target that night, scoring Madrid's equaliser following Danny Welbeck's first-half strike.

He is keen to score again, but said he was unsure how he would react.

"If I score against them it would be spectacular, a beautiful sensation," he said.

"I can't say what I'll do. It would be something spontaneous - I'd love to be in that situation."

In the other tie to be played, Germany's Borussia Dortmund host FC Shakhtar Donetsk.

Dortmund, which has beaten Ajax, Real Madrid, and Manchester City at home this season, has a slight away-goals edge in the tie following the 2-2 first-leg draw in Donetsk.
