Tipster’s Angle

Manchester United and Atletico Madrid meet for the first time in their histories. Both sides have not had a particularly excellent season, by their standards.

Both Atletico and Man. Utd will want to make a statement by winning this fixture comprehensively. With Cristiano Ronaldo, who is known for scoring against Atletico, and their recent return to form, United will fancy their chances of doing the double over the Spanish giants.

Tip: Cristiano Ronaldo To Score At Any Time @ 2.5

Ronaldo has done most of the scoring for Manchester United in the Champions League this season with 6 goals out of 11 goals in all. He has a history of scoring against Atletico Madrid and showing up when his team needs him the most.

It may be a risky play, no doubt, but we expect to see a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo in this fixture. Cristiano Ronaldo to score at any time is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 2.5 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.34

With this being the first meeting between Atlético Madrid and Manchester United, and such high stakes, we expect to witness more than one goal in this encounter. United will, no doubt, push for the win, and Atletico have enough firepower in front to win the match. Over 1.5 goals is available on the sportsbook at 1.34 odds.


Both teams are locked in a battle for the fourth and final Champions League spot in their respective leagues. United’s only chance of silverware this season lies in the Champions League. We expect a good football game with quick, forward movements from both teams.
