Cristiano Ronaldo

Manchester United drew Atletico Madrid in Monday’s Champions League round of 16 draw. 

It will be a test for Ralf Rangnick’s side as they aim to take their place at the table of Europe’s elite clubs once again.

Atleti have not been at their convincing best this season, but they still pose a strong challenge for the Red Devils.

The Manchester club however have one man in their corner who fancies playing the Spanish club, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese star has a crazy goal-scoring record against Diego Simeone’s side, dating back to the days he played for their city rivals, Real Madrid.

Ronaldo has faced Atleti on 35 occasions, more times than any other opponent in his club career, scoring a remarkable 25 goals.

Barcelona are second on that list, managing 20 goals in 34 matches.

He has scored four hat-tricks against the Spanish club, with the most recent being in the Champions League while playing for Juventus in March 2019.

Ronaldo has never faced Atleti in a Manchester shirt.
