On Wednesday, Manchester United take on Atletico Madrid inside the Champions League, and we’ll brought you daily updates from the game.
Atletico Madrid will host Manchester United on Wednesday night at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid.
The very first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 Round matchup pits United against La Liga champions Real Madrid in Madrid, Spain.
After just a 4-2 victory over Leeds on Saturday, Ralf Rangnick’s team enters the game with momentum. United blew a two-goal lead at Elland Road, but they recovered admirably from that setback in the second half.
Fred and Anthony Elanga, both of whom scored from the bench, were praised by the media following the game.
Despite winning La Liga last season, Atletico Madrid has struggled so far this season that they are currently fifth in the league.
There is no Edinson Cavani in the team for this match because of a leg injury.

Dalot’s numbers indicate that he should get the start on Friday.
Diogo Dalot was hailed as Manchester Utd’s most complete full-back prior to the Leeds game, with the following stats cited by InStat:
Every game, he restores an average of 7 balls.
United fullback with the highest proportion of shots on target (23 percent )
62 percent of the challenges were overcome, and there were a record number of victories (70 percent )
There were 14 challenges on average per match, with nine of them being won (highest)
Aerial challenges (64 percent) and defensive challenges (56 percent) were the most successful (63 percent )
He completes 2.8 tackles per game on average (the best among United full-backs)
When Ralf Rangnick called up Aaron Wan-Bissaka on Sunday, it was not a surprise. It will be a shock if Wan-Bissaka retains his position tonight.
