Formula 1 racing star Fernando Alonso is backing Real Madrid to win their Champions League tie with Manchester United.

Real are at Old Trafford tonight.

Alonso said: "I hope Real Madrid goes on to the next round and easier games will be coming up. If we make it to the next round, they will have smoother sailing than now, and there will be more happy times. I hope we make it, at the last minute, in penalties, however we can."
