It finished Real Madrid 1-1 Manchester United at the Bernabeu, meaning United will have an away goal to protect in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at Old Trafford.

Danny Welbeck put United ahead in Madrid, but Cristiano Ronaldo—who else?—replied for the home side to set things up very nicely for the return.
