Full Time: Manchester United 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Another disappointing result for Manchester United as they fall to defeat to Atletico Madrid. 

Despite the result, it was a positive performance from the Red Devils, as they looked dangerous throughout. However, they simply couldn't break down the blue wall at the back for Atletico. 

Renan Lodi's header just before half-time proved to be the difference between the two sides. 

The result sees United's season all but end, they must turn it around as they prepare to take on Leicester on April 2nd.

Half-time: Manchester United 0-1 Atletico Madrid

United go into the break finding themselves one goal down at the break, and needing to comeback once again.

It was a great start to the game by United. The home side came out with little fear, pressing high and playing some good football.

Anthony Elanga would have hoped to have done better from a few yards out following a Fernandes pass, but for Oblak's head the Red Devils would be 1-0 up.

Both goalkeepers have pulled off some good saves and we were looking to be going in level until Renan Lodi nodded in from close range. 

21:492 months ago


Bruno Fernandes picks up the ball 25 yards out and fires a rasping, moving strike towards goal. 

Oblak in goal did brilliantly to adjust himself and tip the shot away from danger.

21:442 months ago

41' GOAL!

Renan Lodi has scored for the Spaniard's, much against the run of play.

A great pass from Koke into Joao Felix who finds a man over. The ball into the back post was met by an unmarked Lodi.

21:412 months ago


The match has gone flat in the last five minutes or so. Atletico's low-block have done a good job of nullifying United's attacking power so far. 
21:362 months ago


Llorente was released in behind Telles for the first time, but the Spaniard had wandered into an offside position. 

His cross had found Joao Felix who tapped in, the Portuguese forward though he'd grabbed the opener!

21:332 months ago


Fred has had a brilliant start to the game. The Brazilian has found himself very far forward, often the furthest forward of the United players. 

It has been a confident display from the midfielder, so far being the brightest spark.

21:282 months ago


Once again lovely play on the edge of the area by United. Each player is passing patiently waiting for an opening. On this occasion, the ball is worked across to right-back Diogo Dalot. He fires low and hard, but it was well held by Oblak.
21:242 months ago


The decision was no penalty, Atletico were awarded with a goal kick.
21:222 months ago


Penalty shout for United. Reinildo appeared to kick through Fernandes to win the ball.
21:212 months ago


A patient move from United began with Ronaldo. The striker picked up the ball 20 or so yards out and gave it to Fred who found Telles. His cross was met by Dalot, who had a good volley blocked by Reinildo.
21:182 months ago

15' CLOSE!

Following a decent tackle from Harry Maguire, the ball finds its way to Rodrigo de Paul. The Argentinian's deflected shot forced a brilliant save from David de Gea, diving well to his right.
21:152 months ago


Great move from United that started with Dalot. The full-back skipping past Koke. The Portuguese defender found Bruno Fernandes who fired a ball across to Elanga.

Elanga's close range shot is stopped by Jan Oblak's face!

21:102 months ago


The Red Devils have found a lot of joy down their left flank so far. Cristiano Ronaldo has found a lot of space and is linking up well with Jadon Sancho. 
21:052 months ago


Manchester United have started the game brightly here. A nice ball over the top resulted in a headed chance for Elanga, however the Swede was penalised for a foul on goalkeeper Jan Oblak.
21:012 months ago


The referee blows his whistle and Atletico get us underway here!

Anthony Elanga returns to the starting XI.

Despite losing his place to Marcus Rashford on Saturday, Anthony Elanga has returned to the Red Devils starting line-up following his dramatic equaliser in the first-leg.

Can Atletico plug their leaky defence?

Despite all the quality Atletico possess at the back, they have only managed to keep one clean sheet on the road in their last five games (W2, D1, L2). This isn't helped by the fact United have scored six goals in their last three matches at Old Trafford (W2, D1). With striker Cristiano Ronaldo bagging a hat-trick in his last game against Tottenham, it remains to be seen how the Atletico backline deals with the Portuguese man. 
20:052 months ago

A match for the taking.

Manchester United have gone five years since their last trophy and this season's UEFA Champions League remains their last hope. A perfectly poised game awaits the two sides following a hard fought 1-1 draw in Madrid, United equalising courtesy of Anthony Elanga.
