TheThe suspense remained unchanged before the knockout stages of the Champions League on Tuesday at Old Trafford, where Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo receive Atletico Madrid (1-1 in the first leg), and in Amsterdam, where Ajax receives Haller led by Sebastian Benfica (2-2 to go).
Manchester United – Atletico Madrid
At home, Manchester United will only benefit initially from the support of their supporters, who have not tasted the joys of the Round of 16 at home since 2018-2019, the evening of a .2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain.

Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Savic, Giménez, Reinildo, Llorente, Herrera, Koke, De Paul, Lodi, Joao Felix, Griezmann
Ajax – Benfica
The team led by Eric Ten Hag will have to win at home, having been under scrutiny in the first leg of the Round of 16 in Lisbon (2-2), a task that appears to be in their line in the wake of their striker Sebastian Haller (11 goals in C1).
Ajax: Onana, Mazraoui, Timber, Martinez, Blend, Alvarez, Bergis, Gravenberch, Anthony, Haller, Tadic
Benfica: Flashodemus, Gilberto, Otamendi, Vertonghen, Grimaldo, Everton, Weigl, Tarapet, Silva, Darwin, Ramos
