Manchester United managed to blow a two-goal lead against Leeds on Sunday, before eventually winning 2-4 on an extremely wet Elland Road. Contributions from captain under fire Harry Maguire, along with substitutes Fred and Anthony Elanga, will give Ralf Rangnick’s men some confidence ahead of their visit to the Spanish capital.

Caretaker boss Rangnick hasn’t captained a side to the Champions League round of 16 in over a decade, despite his Schalke side facing Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United in the semi-finals in 2011.

Atlético Madrid beat Osasuna 0-3 at the weekend but endure a frustrating league season. They sit fifth in La Liga, 15 points behind city rivals Real Madrid, who top the table. Moreover, they have lost both the Copa Del Rey and the Super Cup, which means that, like Manchester United, the Champions League is their only chance for silverware this season.

Manager Diego Simeone will be without Daniel Wass and Matheus Cunha as the pair return from injury, and Thomas Lemar self-isolates due to Covid. And surprisingly, former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who now plays for Atléti, is only on the bench tonight.

For United, Raphael Varane has recovered from a stomach problem and is starting, while Marcus Rashford and Fred also enter the first 11.

The Spanish champions have lost their last four Champions League matches against English sides. However, they haven’t played Manchester United in European competition since the two met in the Cup Winners’ Cup Round of 16 in the 1991-92 season. Atlético won 4-1 on aggregate over two legs on this occasion.

Atlético Madrid: Oblak, Savic, Giménez, Mandava, Vrsaljko, Llorente, Kondogbia, Herrera, Lodi dos Santos, Correa, João Félix

Manchester United : de Gea, Lindelof, Varane, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Pogba, Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo

Two managers under pressure will be hoping their teams can put in a solid performance and propel them to the next stage of the Champions League. See how it goes with the Atlético Madrid vs Manchester United live stream, which we’ll show you below.
