Champions League: Saha predicts winner of Man Utd vs Atletico Madrid

Former Manchester United forward, Louis Saha, has backed the club to beat Atletico Madrid when both teams clash in the Champions League round of 16 tie in February.

Recall that Man United was drawn against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 that will take place in February.

Ralf Rangnick’s men are currently in the sixth position on the Premier League table with 27 points from 16 games.

Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, won the LaLiga title last season but are already 13 points behind leaders Real Madrid this season.

Diego Simeone’s side scraped through their Champions League group despite losing three games.

But Saha believes Man United have enough time to ‘build momentum’ ahead of their clash against the LaLiga giants.

“It’s a decent draw for United in the end, probably better than the one we had the first time around. But in the Champions League knockout stages, you won’t face any easy teams,” Saha told Bookmakers.

“Man United have the tools, the players and the talent to beat Atletico and because it’s two or three months away, they have some time to build momentum. Who knows what the team will be by then? There could even be some additions in January.”
