Man Utd to open the scoring

In today’s UCL Tips, we are backing the Red Devils to open the scoring as our first Man Utd vs. Atletico Madrid prediction. To the surprise of everyone, Man Utd pulled a comeback in the 80th minute to equalize 1-1 in the first leg against a highly defensive Atleti. The Red Devils now have everything to their advantage, including massive home support. It is on nights like these that Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, shines.

A mid-week hattrick against Spurs means CR7 will be the main man to trouble Atleti’s defense. Perhaps, it is one of those nights that Old Trafford will get their most important wins in UCL against a side that couldn’t hold onto a 1-nil lead in the first leg.

Victory for the Red Devils

Man Utd dominated the first leg by 63% in ball possession. A 67% possession in the first half and 59% in the second are stats that Ralf Rangnick will want to build upon. Atletico Madrid visits Old Trafford after a 2-0 victory over the mid-table team, Celta Vigo, 3-1 away win against fifth-placed Real Betis, and most recently, a 2-1 win over relegation candidates, Cadiz. While United has performed below expectations lately, save for their last game against Tottenham, there is a positive atmosphere at Old Trafford ahead of this UCL fixture. We think United will make the most of this opportunity to bag all points.

The second leg of Round 8 will be an all-decider. With PSG out, it is beginning to look like this will be another year for a Premier League team to win the UCL.

Man United Lineup

Raphael Varane is expected in starting the lineup according to the latest admission from head coach Ralf. Sancho and Ronaldo linked well in the last game against Tottenham, so both are expected to lead the attack alongside Pogba/Elanga with DeGea between the sticks. There are no injury concerns on the home side.

Man Utd vs. Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico Madrid Lineup

Atletico Madrid kept CR7 at bay in the first leg but playing at Old Trafford will be intimidating enough to keep them even warier of danger. The visitors will be without several players such as Wass, Cunha, Vrsalko, Lemar, and Carrasco. While Lemar was underwhelming in the first leg, Vrsaljko’s absence will be felt given that he hit the woodwork once and made important interceptions in the first leg. Griezmann and Jao Felix will start upfront with Oblak as the goalkeeper.
