Ferguson: Man Utd could've put SIX past Real Madrid defence

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes they could've scored SIX against Real Madrid in the first-leg of their Champions League tie.

Ferguson admits the way they played in the first leg gives him real cause for optimism.

He said: "We could have scored five or six.

"Unusually for Robin van Persie, he missed two great opportunities and their goalkeeper made a couple of good saves.

"Danny Welbeck missed one just before half-time.

"We expected Madrid to have a lot of possession, there was nothing that worried me and they weren't carving us open."
