Elite European ball clubs will take centre stage on Monday as Real Madrid takes on Granada, while Manchester United and Chelsea are set to rekindle their long seethed rivalry at Old Trafford, England.
Wayne Rooney vs. Fernando Torres
Coming off a 2-1 win over Real Betis in their La Liga Opener, Real Madrid looks to sustain their winning ways against Granada. Cristiano Ronaldo is out to prove he's still one of the most prolific goal scorers in the world, but the impending arrival of Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale will further boost the Los Blancos' title hope this season.
On the other hand, Granada is also fresh from a 2-1 win over Osasuna in the La Liga opener, and they will try to keep their flawless record intact on Monday.
Meanwhile, Manchester United and Chelsea are pitted in an emotionally charged showdown. Despite the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson and the arrival of David Moyes as manager for Manchester United, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said the excitement of facing the Red Devils remains the same and he's ready to embrace the new challenge at hand.
Moreover, Chelsea's desire to get Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney put more heat on the rivalry, prompting an exchange of feisty words between Moyes and Mourinho.
Manchester United will be fielding Rooney, Robin Van Persie and the rest of the Red Devils core group, while Chelsea will counter with Fernando Torres and company.
