Manchester United will lock horns with Atletico Madrid at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, hoping to pick up a win and book a place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League competition. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of an encouraging 3-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur, whereas the Rojiblancos recorded a 2-1 victory over Cadiz.

Diego Simeone will probably opt for the 3-5-2 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game, as Renan Lodi looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

Jan Oblak will continue to operate in between the sticks for the visitors. The Slovenian shot-stopper would hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Tuesday.

Simeone is expected to field the defensive trio of Stefan Savic, Felipe, Reinildo Mandava at the heart of Atletico’s backline. Their main objective would be to track and close down the potential openings United’s front-men might create.

Marcos Llorente is a guaranteed starter at the right wing-back spot, whereas Renan Lodi will fill in on the other flank as the left wing-back.

Midfield

Hector Herrera, Rodrigo De Paul and Koke are expected to start in the central midfield positions. The trio would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the front men.

Attack

Joao Felix and Antoine Griezmann will form the striker’s partnership upfront. The duo would fancy their chances of finding the back of the net when they face off against the United defence that has kept just one clean sheet in their last five matches across all competitions.
