Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra is hoping to face Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo. United will meet Real in the Champions League.

Evra is not worried about facing his former training ground partner. Indeed, he quite fancies his chances.

"I hope he plays on my side," said Evra. "He knows from training what a tough defender I am. I know how to catch him.

"I know he can make the difference at any time but the emotion means it will be really difficult for him."
