How Can Manchester United seal the deal against Atletico Madrid? 

manchester-united-vs-atletico-madrid

Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are one of the most prominent football clubs in the world, with a long and illustrious history and a track record of constant success.

Red Devils have had a difficult week following some harsh criticism following their defeat in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium.

During the 4-1 loss to City, Ralf Rangnick’s team was accused of giving up, but Pogba insists the spirit in the camp is still high, and that the win against Tottenham, in which they were twice pegged back, was the right answer.

1st leg Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United 

First leg between United and Athletic took place on 24 Feb 2022. Thanks to Elanga’s second-half goal, Manchester United were able to square the game at 1-1.

Moreover, Lingard took a 20-yard shot in the bottom right corner. Oblak counters with a parry. Simeone drags himself through the tunnel, while Elanga is applauded by his teammates.

That very well sums up the performance on an evening when they were outplayed for the bulk of the game, but they stayed in there, fought hard, and stole a late equaliser. 

Ronaldo vs Atletico Madrid

The performance of Cristiano Ronaldo versus Atletico Madrid will wow you. Ronaldo has a propensity of scoring against a wide range of opponents, but no club has suffered the brunt of his anger more than Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Ronaldo’s teams have eliminated Atlético Madrid in 5 of their last 7 Champions League knockout round outings, whether it was with Real Madrid or Juventus. His numbers against Atlético are incredible: 25 goals in 35 games, 4 hat tricks, and 2 victories in the Champions League final while playing for Real Madrid’s crosstown rival. He has a total of 16 wins and 16 draws against Atletico.

Now he’ll be trying to add to his total when he faces them on Tuesday night with Man Utd.
