Renan Lodi sends Red Devils out of the Champions League

Atletico Madrid advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League courtesy of a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. They secured 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.

Anthony Elanga scored United’s goal in Madrid but missed an early chance to convert a pass from Bruno.

Jan Oblak kept out a point-blank effort from Elanga with his head in the 13th minute.

Atletico still went into half-time in front after Lodi headed home Antoine Griezmann’s delivery.

Oblak made another excellent stop from a Raphael Varane header that looked destined for the top-left corner with 13 minutes.

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