Manchester United host Atletico Madrid this evening in the last-16 second-leg tie of UEFA Champions League 2021/22.
The match takes place at Old Trafford and will be shown live on BT Sport 2.
The Spanish side struck first in the first leg with Joao Felix heading them into a seventh-minute lead that looked as if it would be enough to get them an advantage to take to Manchester, only for United substitute Anthony Elanga to level in the 80th minute, five minutes after coming on.
Elanga’s goal was the 400th scored by United in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, and also the 100th conceded by Atletico.
While Atletico have reached the knockout rounds for the eighth time in the last nine seasons, their English opponents are in the last 16 for the first time since 2018/19 – although this is their 12th appearance at this stage overall, three more than the Spanish club.
This season United finished first in Group F after bouncing back from a shock opening defeat while Atletico had to wait until Matchday 6 to secure progress from Group B, a 3-1 win at Porto taking them through as runners-up behind Liverpool.
Tonight’s match coverage starts at 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App. Kick-off 8.00pm.
BT Sport will also air Benfica’s trip to Ajax on BT Sport 3 from 7.30pm this evening.
