    Know the opposition



    Club Atlético de Madrid, S.A.D. (meaning Athletic Club of Madrid), commonly referred to as Atlético Madrid in English or simply as Atlético or Atleti (and nicknamed Colchoneros or Indios), is a Spanish professional football club based in Madrid. The club was founded on 26 April 1903 as Athletic Club Sucursal de Madrid by three Basque students living in Madrid. These founders saw the new club as a youth branch of their childhood team, Athletic Club de Bilbao who they had just seen win the 1903 Copa del Rey Final in the city. In 1904, they were joined by dissident members of Real Madrid. Athletic's first ground, the Ronda de Vallecas, was in the eponymous working-class area on the south side of the city. In 1919, the Compañía Urbanizadora Metropolitana—the company that ran the underground communication system in Madrid—acquired some land, near the Ciudad Universitaria. In 1921, Athletic Madrid became independent of parent-club Athletic Bilbao and moved into a 35,800-seater stadium built by the company, the Estadio Metropolitano de Madrid.

    During the 1920s, Athletic won the Campeonato del Centro three times and were Copa del Rey runners-up in 1921, where they faced parent club Athletic Bilbao, as they would again in 1926. Based on these successes, in 1928 they were invited to join the Primera División of the inaugural La Liga played the following year. By 1939, when La Liga had resumed, Athletic had merged with Aviación Nacional of Zaragoza to become Athletic Aviación de Madrid. Aviación Nacional had been founded in 1939 by members of the Spanish Air Force. With the legendary Ricardo Zamora as manager, the club subsequently won their first La Liga title in 1940 and retained the title in 1941. Under Helenio Herrera and with the help of Larbi Benbarek, Atlético won La Liga again in 1950 and 1951. With the departure of Herrera in 1953, the club began to slip behind Real Madrid and Barcelona and for the remainder of the 1950s were left to battle it out with Athletic Bilbao for the title of third team in Spain. However, during the 1960s and 1970s, Atlético Madrid seriously challenged Barcelona for the position of second team — and after winning La Liga in 1973, the club reached the 1974 European Cup Final.

    In terms of league titles won, Atlético Madrid are the third most successful club in Spanish football – behind Real Madrid and Barcelona. Atlético have won La Liga on eleven occasions, including a league and cup double in 1996; the Copa del Rey on ten occasions; two Supercopas de España, one Copa Presidente FEF and one Copa Eva Duarte; in Europe, they won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1962, were runners-up in 1963 and 1986, were UEFA Champions League runners-up in 1974, 2014 and 2016, won the Europa League in 2010, 2012 and 2018, and won the UEFA Super Cup in 2010, 2012 and 2018 as well as the 1974 Intercontinental Cup. They are the reigning champions of La Liga. Atletico Madrid's fiercest rivals are Real Madrid (contests between them are named El Derbi Madrileño or simply El Derbi). A historic rivalry also exists between Atlético Madrid and Barcelona, considered one of the Classics of Spanish football — apart from minor but vivid rivalries with Espanyol and Villareal. The club play their home games at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

    Ronaldo is the only reason I have any hope.

    His record against them
    &
    We all know he likes upstaging Messi. PSG going out could benefit us in terms of lighting a bigger fire in Ronaldo's belly

    They're in some good form sadly. Expect a cagey game and a single goal will win it. Hopefully the OT crowd will give the players a boost.

    God I hope our fullbacks play better and our midfield gets a grip of the game.

    They've been in good form lately. We have a chance but still think they're favourites. 2-1 Atletico.

    De Gea
    Dalot Lindelöf Varane Telles
    Fred Matić
    Pogba Bruno Sancho
    Ronaldo​
    This team for me. Maybe swap Pogba and Sancho, however I would like to see Pogba on the right and give Dalot more license to provide the width (he's recently been used more centrally/underlapping which I don't think suits him).

    We don’t play for 17 days after this so the result of this will determine the mood of the fans for 3 weeks !

    On a flight home now while I was waiting to board I booked a flight in Tuesday morning. Not many people can say they’ve seen a goat score a hat trick in 4 days

    McTominay shielding the defence gives me nightmares.
    Maybe we can have Matic ready to play Tuesday if we raid Brady's stash of orphan tears and horse placenta while he's in town.

    Relish it people. Our last CL knockout game was in 2019. It’s taken us 3 years to get here. God knows when we’ll be here next.

    1:1, then we lose on pens. :(

    I'd go with the same team as yesterday. Maybe McTominay for Matic if he can't handle it. Cavani for Rashford. Sub in Fernandes and Elanga ~65'.

    Ronaldo hattrick incoming
    Hope CR7 saved some goals for this one
    Drop Ronaldo for this, he is past it. Not good enough for the MLS.
    I miss the days when we had 11 great players and a great team. The obsession with Ronaldo to "save us" is nauseating

    Even when we had a great team Ronaldo was the one putting the ball in the back of the net

    He's the GOAT and our current shite side needs him more than ever

    Utd will have to play really well to win. Athletico will work hard and fight for everything. Could be another great game, looking forward to it.
