Xabi Alonso admits that he is excited by the second leg of Real Madrid's Champions League last-16 tie with Manchester United following Wednesday's draw in Spain.

Xabi Alonso has admitted that he is looking forward to the second leg of Real Madrid's Champions League last-16 tie with Manchester United following Wednesday's 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Danny Welbeck gave United the lead in Spain before the home side made sure that they ended the night level thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's equaliser.

"I'm looking forward to the second leg, it's quite open the tie," Alonso told Sky Sports News.

"We knew that was going to happen at home and we are looking forward to the second leg at Old Trafford.

"We need to go for a win. We can't approach the second leg thinking about a draw. We want to go to Old Trafford to score goals, that's the best way to go through."

Madrid make the trip to Old Trafford on March 5.
