Manchester United knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid

Manchester United’s run in Europe is over for this season as they were knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid who won 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Renan Lodi scored the only goal of the game to give Atletico a 2-1 aggregate win over both legs, as United failed to score for the first time in the competition this season, and it cost them.

Atletico delivered the brutal blow shortly before the halt-time whistle, as they capitalised on an unorganised United defence.

Lodi finished from close range as he found himself unmarked at the back post, while United were still arguing with the referee as they felt as though they should have been awarded a free-kick.

Diego Simeone’s side sat back and defended valiantly until the final whistle, booking their place in the quarter-finals, ending United’s quest for silverware this season in the process.
