The first match in Madrid was very stubborn and did not give any advantage to either team. In the first half and the beginning of the second, Atlético dictated their terms, leading 1-0 thanks to a goal by Joao Felix, who scored already in the 7th minute, but then a miraculous transformation of the English club took place. Manchester United had a better ending, bounced back in the 80th minute with the efforts of Anthony Elang and confused everything in this confrontation.

If before the first game everyone noted a decline in the game of both opponents, then before the second leg they won important victories. Atlético have already given out a winning streak in the Example, which already has five matches. In the last round, he won at home against Cadiz (2: 1), and before that he won a key victory in the tournament plan – away over direct competitor Betis (3:1). This allowed the “mattress” to rise to third place.
The team of Diego Simeone, who was even recently dismissed by rumors, now has a good chance to fight for silver – the gap from Sevilla is not so big, a couple of misfires of the opponent – and he can be overtaken. Although competitors are pushing, Atlético will have to work hard to keep Barcelona and Betis from gaining momentum ahead. But the change in a positive direction in Madrid already seems to have occurred.

With a good mood will go to the match and Manchester United. Cristiano Ronaldo triumphantly returned to the squad after the scandalous story of leaving for Lisbon last week. In his absence, United were defeated in an important match in the Premier League “Man City” (1:4). In the next game with Tottenham, the Portuguese striker scored a hat-trick, bringing victory to the team of Ralf Rangnick. The former “curator” of the Moscow “Locomotive”, they say, cannot find an agreement with the main star. But judging by the last meeting, this does not prevent both of them from giving bright matches and continuing to fight for the top four.
Ronaldo on Saturday was as good as in his youth. All three goals against Spurs were scored in great style. Everyone knows that when Krish is angry, he can move mountains. And now just such a case. In this regard, Atlético were not lucky. Ronaldo always sets himself up for the Champions League matches in a special way. And he scores in the European Cup regularly. In the current draw, he had 6 goals in the group. Atlético is one of Ronaldo’s favorite teams. He upset the people of Madrid very often. In 36 matches in all competitions, the 37-year-old Portuguese has scored 25 goals. It will be incredibly difficult to close it, especially on a foreign field.

Moreover, unlike the rival, Atlético is experiencing personnel problems. Midfielder Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco will not help the team in Manchester due to suspension. Injured Geoffrey Kondogbia, Matheus Cunha and Daniel Wass. It is not yet clear whether Angel Correa, Mario Hermoso and Sishe Vrsaljko will appear in the game.
Bookmakers see Manchester United as the favorite of the pair, but this can be argued. Simeone as a coach is stronger than Rangnick, the Argentinean has much more experience in European competition. The first match showed that the Spaniards have an antidote against the opponent’s attack. Plus, everyone is well aware that Atletico is able to give out their best football in decisive matches, which they proved more than once.
