Angel Correa Admits Cristiano Ronaldo Is A Threat To Atletico Madrid. Tomorrow evening, Atletico Madrid hosts Manchester United at the Wanda Metropolitano in a Champions League last 16 match that is impossible to predict. Neither side is in a good mood, despite the fact that they are both customary powerhouses.
Despite being the reigning champions of La Liga, Atletico is currently fifth in the standings, level on points with fourth-placed Barcelona. They’re 15 points behind Real Madrid, their nearest rival. Their last home game ended in a 1-0 loss to bottom-placed Levante, but they bounced back to beat Osasuna 3-0 the following weekend.
United is in a similar position in the Premier League. They are fourth in the league table, four points ahead of fifth-placed West Ham United, four points behind third-placed Chelsea, and 17 points behind league leaders and city rivals Manchester City.
The involvement of Cristiano Ronaldo in Manchester United’s forefront is destined to spark interest. After more than a decade away, the Portuguese returned to Old Trafford during the summer and has traditionally held the Indian sign over Atletico. They’re one of his favourite adversaries.
“We know how Cristiano is,” Angel Correa said pre-match to Marca. “He’s already done a lot of damage to us in previous times that we faced each other. But you can’t just look at Cristiano; you have to look at the entire team. They’re a great side and we’re going to have to make a serious effort to beat them.
