United are away to Marseille in the first leg of their Champions League encounter and Scholes is expecting a difficult test in the South of France.
He added: "Marseille won't be easy. It's a tough place. We played there before quite a few years ago and got beaten.
"But we are looking forward to it. Hopefully it is the start of a good end to the season for us and we can go all the way to the final again and win it."
