Prediction

Atletico Madrid 1, Manchester United 1

Money line (ML)

LEAN to the DRAW (+210).

Man U is on the road coming off a tedious match this past weekend. While phenom F Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to start, F Mason Greenwood isn’t expected to play and F Edinson Cavani is listed as doubtful, per whoscored.com.

Atletico M Koke is also listed as doubtful as is 26-year-old M Thomas Lemar. Atletico is at home, where it is 7-2-3. However, it has just three wins in its last seven matches.

Man U has been playing at a higher level, but on the road, I wouldn’t fully back it to win outright. The DRAW (+210) is the best way to play the money line, but it’s not my best bet in this Round of 16 battle.

Over/Under (O/U)

PASS.

I don’t have a good gauge on the projected goals, and given both teams’ ability to score, yet subsequent ability to limit goals, I’d prefer a bet on BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE (-122).

Atletico Madrid has scored 45 goals in 25 La Liga matches. It scored 8 goals in six matches, including a 2-goal performance against Liverpool, which has allowed the fourth-fewest goals in the EPL.

Man U has 44 goals in 26 EPL matches. It scored 11 goals in six group-stage performances, scoring at least 1 goal in every match.

Combine it all, and it seems likely both dynamic offenses find the back of the net at least once.
