Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United
Date: Saturday, 30 July 2022
Kick-off at 12:45 UK/ 13:45 CET
Venue: Ullevål Stadion.
Both Atletico Madrid and Manchester United have a fierce sense of rivalry between them or at least between some of their players. Rumor has been that Cristiano Ronaldo in his desperation knocked on the doors of Atleit, in order to play in Champions League this season, and they rejected him outright.
This has led to some serious banter between the fans of either club and now it will be a matter of pride for both to secure a win this Saturday.
Atleti as usual had to settle for a 3rd place finish the last season in the Spanish top flight below the other 2 titans. And now they will have to live with a reinvigorated Barcelona and the reigning European champions Real Madrid.
It goes without saying that life is not at all going to be easy for them and they will have to find form before the commencement of the season.
In the meantime, the Red Devils have been going through a testing period. They did sign a good coach but it seems that they have been unable to bring in good players along with him.
And on top of that their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has been on strike and has not even taken part in pre-season fixtures.
It is a doubt if he will appear for this widely-anticipated encounter but if he does it is surely going to be a spectacle, especially with all of the recent banter.
Expect a fierce 90 minutes between the 2 teams this Saturday, despite this being a friendly. Anticipate goals to come in from either end of the pitch.
