Atlético Madrid vs Manchester United Prediction 23.02.2022

Atlético Madrid will welcome Manchester United to Estadio Wanda Metropolitano for a matchday 0 fixture in Europe UEFA Champions League.

Atlético Madrid’s latest fixture against Porto ended in an away 3-1 win. Los Rojiblancos was very effective while counter-attacking. In the end, it was enough to make the difference between the two teams. Atlético Madrid was much better than Porto in the second half and scored in the 56th, 90th and 90+2 minute.

Manchester United’s recent game against Young Boys ended in a home 1-1 draw. One point was the maximum they could have won with that display. Manchester United put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 9th minute.

So far, Los Indios plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.00 points per away game on average compared to 0.33 points at home. Although Atlético Madrid is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 33% home clean sheets.

Manchester United has picked up 11 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Manchester United wins 1.33 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Manchester United kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Los Rojiblancos lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 0% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

Man Utd got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Wednesday.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Atlético Madrid wins on average 0.33 points per home game, compared to 1.33 points per away game for Manchester United. My prediction is Atlético Madrid to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.84 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 59% of Atlético Madrid’s home and Manchester United’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Wednesday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 67% of Atlético Madrid’s home and Manchester United’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
