Rangnick charged up as Manchester United gear up to face Atletico Madrid

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick is excited to pit his tactics against Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone for the first time

On Wednesday, Atletico Madrid will play Manchester United in the opening leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 contest at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico Madrid has struggled to duplicate their form from last season, and they presently sit fifth in the league rankings, with their sights set on finishing in the top four this season.

The Red Devils will be looking to trigger an upset in the opening leg of their Champions League round of 16 encounter in Madrid, but Cavani, who has only played once for United in the previous month, will not be making the trip.

Ralph Rangnick can use his standard 4-2-3-1 system, with Cristiano Ronaldo at the helm of the assault. Pogba will play as a midfield controller alongside Mctominay, with the likes of Sancho, Rashford, and Bruno Fernandes in front of them. United is anticipated to be patient in their build-up play and to score goals with the creativity of its inside forwards.

“In those 11 years he has won trophies with a clear identity and with a recognisable playing style,” Rangnick told journalists. “And I don’t think this has changed in the last years.

“There is always an emotional side and this also reflects the character of the manager – Diego Simeone is probably one of the most emotional managers in Europe.” Said Rangnick.
