Manchester United legend Gary Neville feels his old club are capable of a good result at Real Madrid in the first-leg of their Champions League tie this week.

Neville wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "Their situation is the reverse of United's: they can't win the league, so they have to win the Champions League to salvage the season.

"But United are more than capable of going to that stadium and handling the ball with as much confidence as their opponents.

"They have risen to the occasion in big games this season against Liverpool, Arsenal, City and Chelsea and can do so again."
