|Real Madrid players celebrate a goal against Ajax|
Mourinho's Real Madrid keeps an average of nearly two goals per game away from home in the 15 games played in the top European competition. 27 goals for the white team that will attempt to expand its numbers at the stadium of Manchester United, a field that Mourinho has not visited as Real Madrid coach until date. Managing white team, he has previously visited English ground, beating Tottenham (0-1) and a draw (1-1) against Manchester City.
With this data in its favor, Real Madrid will seek a positive result at Old Trafford and reach the quarter-finals round. The first European away match of Real Madrid with Mourinho on the bench, was against a French team (Auxerre) in September 2010. Di Maria's goal gave the victory to whites by 0-1. Since then, 15 consecutive games scoring away from home.
Anyway, keep up the scoring momentum in away matches will be vital to defeat Red Devils. Real Madrid has scored against Milan, Barcelona and Bayern Munich in their own stadium. A major list of European teams. Why not against Manchester United?
