Rioch: Man Utd clash biggest in Aalborg history

Aalborg coach Brian Rioch says facing Champions League rivals Manchester United tonight is the biggest game in their history.

There will be only 10,000 people in Energie-Nord Arena on Tuesday evening, but Rioch warned: "If we were to take a point off them then it will be like an earthquake in here.

"This is the biggest game in our history. To get to this stage of the Champions League is a fantastic achievement. But to play Manchester United is something else. This is a huge day for Danish football as a whole.

"Everybody here knows Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez and Dimitar Berbatov. There is a party that leaves these shores every Saturday to go and watch Manchester United.

"I was the same as anybody else when this group was drawn and we got Celtic and Manchester United. I was buzzing, just like the town."
