They say that you get what you wish for---David Beckham prayed for a meeting between his loan club AC Milan and United. It's certainly an opportunity for him to return to OT on club duty for the first time in seven years.
From a United perspective, this is one of the toughest draws that we could possibly have got. Milan are not quite the side that humiliated United in 2006 but they do raise their game when occasion demands. Their victory at the Bernabeau this season is testimony to that.
One really hopes that by the time the two legs come around, we don't have the likes of Carrick playing central defence. I do fancy United against any side when we are at full strength!
We might just have the likes of Hargreaves around for this one so it's all about crossing our fingers as far as injuries to our stars is concerned!
