UCL: Atletico Madrid, Manchester United share the spoils

Manchester United survived defeat in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Spanish Champions, Atletico Madrid, thanks to substitute, Anthony Elanga’s 80th minute sttike.

Barely six minutes after coming on for Marcus Rashford, the 19-year-old made good of Bruno Fernandes’ pass to score his first Champions League goal and earn United a 1-1 draw.

Until that moment, it seemed as though Diego Simeone’s men were going to take a narrow advantage to Old Trafford after doing a good job in marinating the lead through Joao Felix’s early thunderous, first half header.

However, with the turn of events, both sides have everything to play for in the second of the lie, in Manchester in three weeks time.
