City’s £32.5million ace helped Brazil knock six past a Portugal side which included United winger Cristiano Ronaldo last week.
His Eastlands pal Elano was on the scoresheet that night in Brasilia and the Samba pair are now eyeing a Sunday repeat.
Speaking after that 6-2 thrashing, Robinho told The Sun: “We are all looking forward to the match with United.
"We have good chances to win, although they are very strong.
“But we play at home. We have to think that, in our stadium, we are always favourites.
“And it would be great to repeat the victory I had with Brazil against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.
“I really hope Elano and I can have the same success in the derby that we enjoyed for our national team.”
