Manchester United vs Atletico Madrid Match Preview and Team News
Manchester United snapped a three-match winless run ahead of their return leg clash at home to Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. A Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick ensured United beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 at Old Trafford, and they will be gunning for a win as they welcome the Spanish champions. This tie is well poised at 1-1 from the opening leg, with United having come from behind to level. They go to this game with a clear need to work on their defense, as their only clean sheet in the last five matches was against relegation-threatened Watford, which ended 0-0. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
Atletico Madrid is in good form; their earlier struggles have dissipated, and they have a five-match unbeaten run going into this game. They have four wins in these five matches. Four times in their last five games, they have scored two or more goals, and both sides have scored in three, with Atletico keeping two clean sheets only in the previous five matches. The Spaniards are coming from a 2-1 win over Cadiz in La Liga, that being the third of their last five games to produce over 2.5 goals. Joao Felix enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Diego Simeone seeks responsibility in every game, and it doesn’t matter who the opponent is. The players have to do their best, which is why he is one of the best coaches in the world.
