MANCHESTER UNITED play host to Atletico Madrid in a Champions League fixture from which only one team can progress.

Both sides will be desperate to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition, as Manchester United have not reached that stage since 2019, when they were beaten by Spanish opposition.

This is one of the most exciting round-of-sixteen draws we have seen this season, as the first leg resulted in a 1-1 draw in Spain.

United will back themselves at Old Trafford, and will hope that Cristiano Ronaldo can rediscover his form against an opponent he is prolific against usually.

Two young stars stole the show last time out, namely Joao Felix and Anthony Elanga, with the latter rescuing a point for Manchester United.

This could be a season defining game for United, who are in a tough battle for fourth place in the Premier League, similar to Chelsea last season, who went on to win the competition.
