Atlético Madrid – Manchester United (1:30 AM)

Cholo Simeone will have a new date with history this morning when he welcomes Ralf Ragnick’s Manchester United at home.

His team struggled to get through the group stage in this Champions League and did so in agonizing fashion on the last matchday. Their group was the so-called zone of death because Liverpool, Porto, and Milan were in it.

Atlético Madrid has low points: the team is not the same as last season when they were champions of La Liga, where they are now fifth and out of Europe, they were out of the Copa del Rey and lost the Spanish Super Cup.

Ángel Correa is one of the bright spots. The Argentine striker is, along with Robert Lewandowski, the player with the most goals among the five major European leagues in 2022 with 7 conquests.

In addition, he is fighting for a place in the final list with Argentina for the FIFA World Cup and among the players of his nationality, he is, with 15, the one with the most goal participation: he scores or assists every 94 minutes of play.

Manchester United is living a strange present. The team is not convincing in terms of play, attitude, and mood, but in the Premier League, it has 7 matches without defeats, including 4 victories.

In any case, the fourth place in the English ranking, which for now puts them in the Champions League next year, runs serious risks of being snatched by Arsenal and Tottenham.

In the group stage, Ralf Rangnick’s team advanced as leaders in a zone where they started with a loss against Young Boys of Switzerland, recovered with victories against Villarreal and Atalanta, and closed with draws against the Italians and Swiss at Old Trafford.

Cristiano Ronaldo, probably the player with the best relationship with this tournament in history, has 6 goals in this edition and will have a particular confrontation.

When he wore the shirt of Real Madrid, he played against the city’s biggest rival many times, even in the Champions League finals where he managed to lift the trophy.

Moreover, when he played for Juventus, the draw brought them together again, and -after losing and being booed at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid- the Portuguese striker scored a hat-trick in Turin to help his team qualify.

Line-Ups

Atlético Madrid: Oblak; Llorente, Savic, Giménez, Mandava; Correa, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco; Suárez, Cunha.

Manchester United: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Cristiano Ronaldo.

Predictions

The odds for Atletico Madrid (2.65), draw (3.15), and Manchester United (2.90) are really high for their indecipherable quality. The matches at this stage are becoming more and more even and the scorelines reflect that.

Atletico Madrid is usually a team that comes out with a knife between its teeth and this season was very questionable, but these phases are their natural habitat. A win for the Spaniards with a clean sheet pays 4.40 odds.

As for the cards, Simeone’s team regularly exceeds 4.5 yellow cards, while Manchester United is almost always below.

In these high-intensity matches, it would not be strange for Atletico to end up with more than 12.5 fouls (odds 1.75). As well as Luis Suarez (3.20 odds), Marcos Llorente (5.00), and Harry Maguire (3.50) could also be cautioned.
