Man Utd – Atl.Madrid – Review for 15.03.2022
Manchester United hosts Atletico Madrid at the Old Trafford in a second leg from the
Champions League 1/8-finals. The first leg in Spain ended 1-1, so everything is wide open
here. Let’s preview it in our football prediction betting tips today.
It was not a bad first game at the Wanda Metropolitano, but nobody was able to win it.
Joao Felix scored an early opener for Los Colchoneros, but Anthony Elanga equalised for
United just 10 minutes before the final whistle. The Swedish striker executed an assist
from Bruno Fernandes and put the ball behind Jan Oblak’s back.
The Red Devils made a huge statement in their last Premier League game on Saturday.
Ralf Rangnick’s team hosted Tottenham Hotspur at home and celebrated a crucial 3-2 win.
The hero of the game was Cristiano Ronaldo who ended his goal drought and scored a
hattrick for the hosts. The Portuguese super star surely made the best game of his
season. Now he’s eager to do the same against Atletico in the Champions League as well.
Atletico also celebrated a win in La Liga before their trip to England. Diego Simeone’s
team hosted Cadiz and took the three points after a 2-1 win. Joao Felix opened the score
for Atleti while Rodrigo de Paul scored the winner in the second half of the game.
Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann started against Cadiz while once again Luis Suarez
started the game from the bench. Most likely Simeone will keep this attack for the visit to
Old Trafford as well. Suarez is not in his best shape at the moment so we should expect to
see him being included in the second half.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League 1/8-finals
second leg between Manchester United and Atletico Madrid. Let’s see if the Red Devils
can use their home advantage here.
