Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid

Manchester United have the opportunity to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday night.

United take on Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16 second leg in the Champions League after drawing 1-1 with Diego Simeone’s side in the reverse fixture. Anthony Elanga scored from the substitute bench to salvage a draw for United in that match.

United were humiliated in the Manchester derby but responded with a 3-2 win over Tottenham on Saturday evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick sealed the three points and he’ll be hoping to get on the scoresheet again versus his favourite opponent on Tuesday night, as Ronaldo has scored 25 goals in 36 appearances throughout his career against Atletico.

In terms of team news, Elanga starts while Paul Pogba is on the bench.

Manchester United face Atletico Madrid with a place in the Champions League quarter-finals at stake later today.

Anthony Elanga scored late in the Spanish capital to earn a 1-1 draw for the Red Devils, who were amid a tough patch of form which included a subsequent stalemate with Watford and defeat at Manchester City.

However, United head into this clash with renewed optimism following Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick heroics against Tottenham on Saturday.

Since the first leg, Atletico have enjoyed a trio of LaLiga victories, the latest coming at home to Cadiz on Friday night to cement their own hopes of a top-four finish.
