Eto'o: We're favourites now
Samuel Eto'o insists Barcelona have one foot in the Champions League final after last night's 0-0 draw with Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo's second-minute penalty miss meant United left the Nou Camp without a vital away goal. And Cameroon hitman Eto'o believes Barca are now the clear favourites to progress. He said: "I really think that if we go to Manchester and play like this then there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn't go through. It's not an easy task to be the home side when you have drawn 0-0 away from home in the first leg of a knockout tie."

There are similar quotes from Eto'o's team-mates Xavi and Gabriel Milito but it's Cristiano Ronaldo who dominates the back pages following his penalty miss - and his promise to make amends in Tuesday's second leg at Old Trafford.
