Atletico Madrid Win or Draw and Over 1.5 Goals

Atletico Madrid lost three of their last five home games in la Liga and also two of their three Champions League matches at the Metropolitano. United on the other side are undefeated in seven away fixtures in all competitions. In addition, both teams’ four of last five games saw over 1.5 goals. 

Manchester United 0 Goals Handicap

The Red Devils drew four of their last seven away games which makes them a good candidate to cover the 0 goals handicap. In addition, United lost just once in six Champions League games this season. 

Anytime Correct Score 1-1

Preliminary review and match prediction for Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United

This is a very equally balanced match between two teams who are having a similar campaign in their domestic leagues. However, Atletico Madrid needed an away win at Porto on matchday six of the group stage to secure second place of their group and a knockout phase qualification.

Diego Simeone’s team are coming into this match after shaky home results as they were beaten by Levante in their last home game. Moreover, in the CL the Indians have no wins at the Metropolitano drawing one and losing two.

Uncharacteristically, Atletico’s defense hasn’t been at their best recently having just one clean sheet in their last eight outings in all competitions. Also in the CL, Atletico were able to stop their opponents from scoring only once in the first phase of the competition.

After a surprise defeat in their opening Champions League campaign at the hands of Young Boys, United went five matches undefeated. That led the Red Devils to finish as leaders of their group and gain the home advantage. 

Obviously, Manchester United are in good form having lost just once in 17 competitive games. Surely coach Ralf Rangnick has had a fine impact since that charge of United despite a couple of disappointing draws. Nevertheless, the German’s real test will be on Wednesday against a very tough Atletico side.

Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United Prediction

It is one of those matches that everything seems so similar between two teams. The main difference however remains in the CL as clearly United had the better run but against weaker teams. Thus we expect and as usual, the Colchoneros to fight for this and get at least a draw. For that, we will back a double chance of a home win or draw.

Safe Bet

This will be a very tactical game which may limit the goal-scoring chances and as a result the total goals. Notably, United’s last five matches saw under 2.5 goals. Moreover, Rangnick will focus more on defense to have minimal casualties. Hence, at odds of 1.68, we predict under 2,5 goals.

Quick Rich

There is a 25% chance for a draw at the Metropolitano on Wednesday. As we pointed out earlier, Atletico and United will very wary of each other’s strengths, and avoiding a defeat will be the priority. Hence, for a quick profit, we advise backing a draw that has odds of 3.13 at Vbet.

Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United First Goalscorer

Angel Correa is Atletico’s top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions. Moreover, the Argentine was the first goalscorer in five matches this season. We predict Correa to repeat the feat on Wednesday again.
