There is a Champions League knockout stage match tonight between Manchester United and Atletico Madrid.
In an interview with the Manchester United interim manager, Ronaldo's mentality has been discussed.
Atletico Madrid and Manchester United will clash in the Champions League last 16 for the first time in over 30 years this evening in Spain's capital.
Goals against La Liga champions Real Madrid would give Manchester United the advantage in the two-legged tie.
The oddsmakers list Atletico Madrid as the favorite to win the match, although the team has had a rough season in their league.
Currently in fifth place in La Liga, Diego Simeone's team has dropped four of their last seven games in all competitions. Additionally, they were beaten twice by Liverpool in the group rounds of this season's Champions League.
For the first time since his exit from Real in 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo will be back in Madrid for the match.
On Ronaldo's mindset, German manager Peter Rangnick provided some insight when asked how he expects Ronaldo to handle the event.
In his own words, as reported on the club's official website: "We shall see. This guy's been around the block a few times. He's used to dealing with this kind of aggressive environment in his professional life, so it shouldn't surprise him.
"For us, it's all about how well we work together as a team. "We have to play on a high level as a team, like we did against Leeds, knowing the quality of Atletico is tremendous."
Prior to leaving Manchester, Rangnick revealed that Edinson Cavani would not be available for the encounter Atletico would be without Koke, Matheus Cunha, and Daniel Wass.
To face Atletico Madrid, Manchester United has named the following players to their squad: De Gea; Henderson; Heaton; Maguire; Dalot; Varane; Lindelof; Telles; Telles; Jones; Bailly; Fred; Mata; Hannibal; Matic; Pogba; Sancho; Ronaldo; Lingard; Elanga; Rashford.
