Round of 16: Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano Stadium
Kick-off time: 8 pm (UK time)
Referee: Ovidiu Alin Hategan
Atletico Madrid will host Manchester United for the first time in over 30 years. Atletico Madrid have been lacklustre in La Liga and sits at fifth place in the table.
Their form have dipped massively since the start of the new year, and they have been sloppy in the games as well after two defeats in four games. However, they will have something to look forward to after their 3-0 win over Osasuna.
While Manchester United have struggled to win games but managed to labour their way through in tricky games, as they remain unbeaten in the last seven games, their most recent win comes against a 4-2 victory over Leeds United.
The Red Devils will be hoping to continue their fine form when they travel to Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United: Head-to-Head Prediction
We predict the first-leg of this game to conclude in stalemate, as both the teams have struggled to put up a decent performance and often relinquished their lead due to their fragile defence.
However, Manchester United have a slight advantage, as they have Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be ready to make amendments after a poor start to his 2022. But the game is bound to end in a draw.
