Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United
Date: Saturday, 30 July 2022
Kick-off at 12:45 UK/ 13:45 CET
Venue: Ullevål Stadion.
There is intense rivalry between Atletico Madrid and Manchester United, or at least between some of their players.
According to rumors, Cristiano Ronaldo went on the doors of Atleit in a last-ditch effort to participate in the Champions League this year, but they flatly denied him.
It will now be a matter of pride for both fans to earn a win on Saturday as a result of the serious banter that has now developed between the supporters of either club.
As usual, Atleti was forced to settle for a third-place finish in the Spanish top division, behind the other two heavyweights.
The reigning European champions Real Madrid and a revitalized Barcelona will now have to coexist in their midst.
It goes without saying that they will not have an easy existence and that they will need to get in shape before the season starts.
The Red Devils have been going through a trying time in the interim. Although they did get a competent coach, it appears that they were unable to also hire competent players.
Furthermore, their star player Cristiano Ronaldo has been on strike and hasn’t even participated in preseason games.
He might not show up for this eagerly awaited meeting, but if he does, it will undoubtedly be a spectacle—especially after all the recent teasing.
Despite the fact that this is a friendly, expect a competitive 90 minutes between the two teams this Saturday. Expect goals to be scored from either end of the field.

Ronaldo isn’t on the team because there are questions about his future, but he might play against Rayo on Sunday.
Mario Hermoso, who suffered an ankle injury against Numancia, is questionable for Atletico, while Joao Felix, who is currently recovering from a hamstring ailment, is probably too early for the game.
