Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says tonight's clash with Real Madrid will not be a boring 0-0 stalemate. Ferguson intends to go with an attacking line-up.

"I can assure you of that," he says. "It can live up to expectations. History always plays a part in these types of games, as well as the two teams' desire to go forward. It's a shame we're meeting this early in the competition. I wish it had been at Wembley [in the final]."
