Manchester United and Atletico Madrid go head to head in the Champions League this week for the second leg of their last 16 tie.

The aggregate score is delicately balance at 1-1 following the first leg at Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid last month, when goals from Joao Felix and Anthony Elanga ensured it finished level.

Away goals no longer count double if aggregate scores are tied at the end of two legs, which means there is no additional advantage for United.

The game will see Ralf Rangnick pit his wits against Diego Simeone, with both men hoping to advance their teams to the quarter-finals, where Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid already await.

Man Utd team news

United could welcome back Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay, both whom were able to train on Monday after missing the weekend win over Tottenham. Luke Shaw has also resumed training but remains more of a doubt to feature against Atletico.

Rangnick appears to have an otherwise fully fit squad at his disposal.


Atletico Madrid team news

Yannick Carrasco is still suspended in Europa following the red card he received on matchday six of the group stage. Six others - Thomas Lemar, Mario Hermoso, Matheus Cunha, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Daniel Wass and Sime Vrsaljko - are also missing through injury.

However, Angel Correa is available to after returning from injury at the weekend.


Man Utd vs Atletico Madrid score prediction

Manchester United have shown this season that they can do it when they really want to, which seemed to be the case against Tottenham a few days ago.

Defensive frailties were again apparent in that match, albeit against two of the best forwards in Europe, and they will have to be on top of their game facing an Atletico side that has actually gathered some momentum in La Liga since the first leg.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Atletico Madrid
