Atl. Madrid vs Manchester Utd Live Football Score 24 Feb 2022

Indeed, Diego Simeone’s side are currently down in fifth spot in the table, 15 points behind leaders Real Madrid, so the Champions League is their only realistic chance of silverware this term, and they might need to win the competition to secure a position in next season’s leading European cup competition.

Atletico were far from convincing in the group stage of the 2021-22 Champions League, winning just two of their six matches against Liverpool, Porto and AC Milan, but a 3-1 victory over Porto on the final matchday moved them onto seven points and allowed them to finish second in the section behind Liverpool.

Manchester United finished top of Group F, while Atletico – who won La Liga last season but are only fifth domestically in 2021-22 – came second behind Liverpool in Group B.

United will be without Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani because of a groin problem, with Rangnick saying “it doesn’t make sense to push him” after he has been unable to train for two weeks.

Atletico also lost to Chelsea in last season’s round of 16, but they have reached the quarter-finals or better in five of their last eight Champions League campaigns under Simeone, while the capital giants have been victorious in nine of their 12 two-legged knockout contests against English clubs.
