Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United Champions League Betting

A crunch clash for two major clubs is set to emerge shortly as the first leg of the Champions League knock out stages is nearly upon us. Atletico Madrid will fancy their chances against a Manchester United side who haven’t been able to muster up their real potential all season.

With interim manager Ralf Ragnick looking to push the team forward and secure some type of silverware this season, the Champions League remains their only genuine chance at this point. 

The Red Devils dropped points to Brentford this past week in a match that they genuinely should have won. They definitely felt hard done by with a Brentford own goal likely being wrongly disallowed towards the end of the contest and that has seen the Old Trafford side drop down to fifth in the table behind West Ham United, who have had one of their best seasons in a long time. 

The Spanish side play host in this first leg and the bookmakers genuinely fancy their chances to get a result. You’ll find them trading around a 7/5 margin to take the victory from the first leg and set themselves up nicely for the following fixture at Old Trafford. 

United are being floated around a 2/1 margin by the bookmakers and you get the impression that they will be happy to get out of this one with a draw. It really makes you wonder whether United will be able to push themselves and come out for this one in the right frame of mind. 

Should the Red Devils be able to pull off a statement victory here away to Atletico it might breathe some fire into their push for the remainder of the season. The bookmakers do make United the favourites to progress from this fixture, however, and you’ll find them priced around 8/13 to do so. Atletico are a 6/5 margin to win the tie.
