Manchester United have a 1-0 advantage going into Tuesdayâ€™s away game to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
The defending champions were dominating in every parts of the field and Cristiano Ronaldo believes that this is a reason for the Red Devils to travel to London full of confidence to finish the job.
â€œIâ€™m very confident. It will be difficult against Arsenal but Iâ€™m dreaming of the final in Rome. The Olympic Stadium is great and Iâ€™d love to play there again,â€ Ronaldo told The Sun
Cristiano Ronaldo had some good and bad moments in his two trips to Rome. The Portuguese winger featured in Manchester Unitedâ€™s disappointing 2-1 lost to AS Roma two years ago but had the better of the Italians last season as he scored an amazing header to affirm his authority on the pitch.
Cristiano Ronaldo is already dreaming of reaching the final and score one more time at the Stadio Olimpico. With more than five games left in the season for Manchester United, Ronaldo â€“ who currently has 23 goals to his tally â€“ wishes to clinch his 30th and final goal of the campaign.
â€œIâ€™m quite happy with my season so far but weâ€™ve got seven games left if we get to Rome so hopefully Iâ€™ll be good in those last games and maybe get to 30 goals.â€
Cristiano wanted to reach 42 goals last season by scoring in the Champions League final in Moscow, and his dream came true.
It might be the same successful story for the Reds this time too, and this imperatively requires them to triumph against Arsenal over the two legs. The World Player of the Year â€“ like the rest of his teammates â€“ is well aware that complacency is out of range.
â€œTo win 1-0 is a good result but we know we could and should have scored more goals.
â€œWe created a few clear chances and didnâ€™t score from them, Almunia made a few great saves but I still believe we can go to Arsenal and score a goal or two.â€
At 1-0, the tie is certainly not closed yet. Can Manchester United surmount the test of facing Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday?
