Champions League: Round of 16 last games of the 1st Leg

Marseille vs Manchester United
on Feb 24 @ Balls Channel

I’m mildly surprised that players I used to know (are you beginning guess how old I am?) like Edwin van der Sar, Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney are still around.  However, I don’t know if they’re still any good but Man U has always been a strong team.

Speaking of old players, Didier Deschamps (former Juve midfielder) is now the coach of Marseille.  He was the coach of Monaco FC and the relegated Juve for a time.  Apparently, he has a bit of bad luck for tomorrow's match as his three first choice strikers are injured.  So that means no André-Pierre Gignac (groin injury) and Brandão and Loïc Rémy (both twisted ankles) are still not sure if they are fit to play against United.  I wonder how Deschamps will re-arrange his team formation.
