Manchester United have a while to mull over their defeat as they do not return to action until April 2 against Leicester City on home soil in the Premier League. Atletico are next in action on the road in LaLiga on Saturday against Rayo Vallecano.

Atletico Madrid advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League courtesy of 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford, securing a 2-1 aggregate win in the round-of-16 tie. Renan Lodi scored the decisive goal in the contest as he converted Antoine Griezmann’s cross in the first half.

United attempted to pile on the pressure, but failed to make the breakthrough amid a solid defensive performance from Los Rojiblancos and Jan Oblak between the posts.

United’s campaign in Europe comes to a bitter end, while Diego Simeone’s men continue their journey into the last eight.
