The back pages of today's newspapers are, of course, crammed with quotes from both camps and previews of the big match. Other stories include Ryan Giggs declaring that victory would confirm the current team as United's best ever side. The same player is also urging Cristiano Ronaldo to remain a Red - "Don't go Ron!"

Among the neutrals casting their expert eye over the final is England manager Fabio Capello. The Italian is quoted in the Daily Mirror as saying United's squad is "surely the strongest in the world." On that basis, plus an assessment that "Cristiano Ronaldo has become Cristiano Ronaldo again and is fitter than Messi," Capello is tipping the Reds to make history tonight. "Getting to a European final is already extremely difficult. To win two in a row is awesome. But Sir Alex is THE record man," adds the England boss.
