Atletico Madrid name 23-man squad to take on Manchester United

Atletico Madrid will be the visitors at Old Trafford on Tuesday night when Manchester United plan to book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. The first leg of the last-16 clash was held at the Wanda Metropolitano a fortnight ago and it finished 1-1 so there’s everything to play for.

Both teams go into the game on the back of a successful weekend, too, which hasn’t always been the case this season. Atleti may be the reigning La Liga champions but they are a far cry away from retaining that title this season.

At least they beat Cadiz 2-1 at the weekend thanks to goals from Joao Felix and Rordrigo de Paul.

United also picked up three points in the Premier League — beating Tottenham 3-2 after a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo, who loves scoring against Atletico Madrid.

However, Atleti have announced a 23-man squad to fly to England for the tie.

Marca claim it includes three doubtful players including Geoffrey Kondogbia, Jose Gimenez and Mario Hermoso.

We can only presume that these three players will be touch-and-go until Diego Simeone names his team to take on United.
