Manchester United were beaten in 1-1 draws in their opening game against Atletico Madrid, the result came as the club was second most popular amongst top clubs. Red Devils fans were no doubt happy after another impressive performance. The goal in the 80th-minute was scored after Joao Felix had given Atletico an equaliser in the seventh minute. The Portuguese forward started his team with an excellent performance when guiding Renan Lodi into his perfect cross above David Gea but they could not build on their lead.

Manchester United salvaged a 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano despite being second best for large parts.

The Red Devils will certainly be counting themselves lucky after Anthony Elanga once again made a telling difference from the bench.

He netted an 80th-minute equaliser for the visitors after Joao Felix had given Atletico a deserved lead inside seven minutes.

The young Portuguese forward got his side off to the perfect start after heading Renan Lodi’s perfect cross beyond David de Gea, but they were unable to build on the early lead.

It was a game typical of what we have come to expect of a team managed by Diego Simeone in the Champions League with yellow cards being dished out to nine players but they were made to pay for their lack of a cutting edge.

The sucker punch for the Rojiblancos came with just 10 minutes left on the clock as substitute Elanga raced onto Bruno Fernandes’ through ball and rolled an effort past Jan Oblak and into the back of the net.

Rangnick might be slightly worried about his side’s performance but the result will be more than satisfactory.

United will be confident of securing passage to the quarter final in the second leg at Old Trafford but they will be wary of the threat Atletico’s will pose in three weeks’ time.
