Substitute Anthony Elanga rescued Manchester United a 1-1 draw at Atletico Madrid in their Champions League last-16 first leg on Wednesday.


Diego Simeone’s Atletico led for the majority of the match through Joao Felix’s fine diving header in the seventh minute.


But three-time European champions United ensured the tie would be level heading into the second leg at Old Trafford on March 15, as Elanga stroked home with 10 minutes remaining.
