Cristiano Ronaldo believes it will be a case of “kill or be killed” when Manchester United face Inter Milan in the first leg of an eagerly awaited last-16 Champions League clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
“From now on, all games are important. It’s time to kill or be killed,” the World Footballer of the Year told uefa.com.
Whoever loses will exit the competition and we don’t want to lose, we don’t want to get stuck along the way. It will be a difficult game, but I think that Manchester United have a better team, and we’ll do our best to win it.
They’re a team with very experienced players, but we also have our aces and great players. We have a more experienced team, we’re the reigning champions.”
The Portugal international added: “It will be a good game, a well-contested game, and the better team will win.”
