Cristiano Ronaldo in Real Madrid squad to face Manchester United

The whole season was massive for us.

It won't be the first time Madrid have worn their black kit in a final.

Last season, Pintus designed a full-year plan that kept most of the squad in reasonable shape for most of the season, and that allowed some of them, such as Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo, to peak at the right time, something we had not seen in previous seasons.

The Red Devils square up to the Champions League winners at the Philip II Arena tomorrow night. It's the same story this time: I'm taking Manchester United to play against Real Madrid, the Champions League winners.

Centre-backs Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are unavailable due to suspension, while fellow defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah is on the verge of concluding a loan move to Crystal Palace. When I won the Champions League with Inter, I left Inter. Madrid have scored 20 goals to United's 16.

Dundee also host neighbours Dundee United in a repeat of last month's group stage match.

Madrid's overall record against English clubs is P34 W14 D10 L10 F48 A38.

The Portuguese star has been included in the Real squad for the game against his former club after returning from an extended summer break. We have a good squad and a team that can try to repeat it.

"I knew the weather was like this and since we came back from the USA I decided to train in Manchester every day at 4pm but it was raining very day", joked Mourinho.

Amid the tense pursuit of Europa League glory and, crucially, Champions League football, Mourinho pointed towards the Super Cup as another incentive.

After scoring just 54 times in the Premier League last season and the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimović leaving a gap in the Europa League holders' front line, new signing Romelu Lukaku will be expected to bring some much-needed fire power to the Old Trafford side.

On paper, Real Madrid still look the better side, even without the prospect of Cristiano Ronaldo playing the entire game.

Juan Mata says Manchester United 'is there' alonside the top clubs in Europe.
