Manchester United's Champions League dreams ended with a 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid at Old Trafford.

With a 1-1 draw from the first leg at the Bernabeu, and an own goal by Sergio Ramos, United's prospects for a place in the quarter-finals looked good.

But things changed when Nani got sent off for an aerial challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa - much to United's fury.

Madrid used this to their advantage with two goals in just three minutes from Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The game ended with Real Madrid winning 2-1 (3-2 on aggregate) and banking their place in the next round.
