Manchester United vs Atlético Madrid build-up
While there are certainly wrinkles that each team need to iron out, it’s worth noting that Man United currently sit fifth in the Premier League (admittedly, having played three games more than fourth-placed Arsenal) and have suffered a single loss in the league since January 3rd. Meanwhile, Atleti have won their last four in La Liga, and sit fourth in the table, level on points with third-placed Barcelona (who do also have a game in hand). In the Champions League, after dropping their group stage opener against Young Boys, Man United are now unbeaten in their last six, while Atleti had to snap a three-match losing streak in their group stage finale to simply reach the knockout round.
There was nothing to separate these sides when met three weeks ago in Madrid. That first leg battle ended 1-1, with Anthony Elanga’s 80th-minute equaliser offsetting Joao Felix’s early opener. Both teams have the talent and experience to get through to the quarter-finals, though recent misfires in big domestic games raises questions about each side.
Manchester United team news
Man Utd were somewhat shorthanded in Saturday’s win over Tottenham, as Bruno Fernandes, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw all missed out. However, Fernandes and McTominay have been declared fit for Tuesday, and should feature in Ralf Rangnick’s starting XI, and Shaw is back in training too. Meanwhile Diogo Dalot, who returned to the right-back spot after a four-game absence, should start on Tuesday in place of Victor Lindelof, who started the first leg in Madrid.
Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea; Telles, Maguire, Varane, Dalot; Fernandes, McTominay, Pogba; Sancho, Ronaldo, Rashford.
Atlético Madrid team news
Complicating matters for Diego Simeone will be a host of absences, as a whopping six players – Matheus Cunha, Mario Hermoso, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Thomas Lemar, Sime Vrsaljko and Daniel Wass – will miss out on Tuesday due to injury, while Yannick Carrasco will still be serving a suspension for a red card he received in Atleti’s final group stage game against Porto.
Atlético Madrid predicted XI: Oblak; Savic, Felipe, Reinildo; Llorente, Herrera, Koke, De Paul, Lodi; Correa, Griezmann
