Barcelona travels to Atletico Madrid’s Vicente Calderon Stadium on Apr. 13, holding a slender 2-1 lead from their first leg win over their rivals in this Champions League quarter-final match-up. Can Lionel Messi and co. get a vital away goal and kill of this game? Click down to watch the live stream and find out!
The first game will be remembered for the physical approach Atletico adopted, with hard tackles being made on Barça’s superstar attacking trio of Leo, Brazilian genius Neymar and temperamental Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez. The Red and Whites will be sure to do more of the same in the second leg under the encouragement of their combative coach Diego Simeone.
But let’s not disrespect Atletico as just an aggressive team. They have their own super talents, including Antoine Griezmann who will be the man they will rely on to pose a goal threat. He was anonymous in the first leg, so he will be looking for a big performance this time round.
In the first leg, Atletico took a shock 1-0 lead thanks to Fernando Torres. But he was sent off in the first half and Barcelona capitalized on playing with an extra man by scoring two second half goals thanks to the brilliant Luis.
This game is so delicately poised, anyone of these teams could go through to the next round. But if Barcelona get the first goal, it’ll be tough for Atletico to win.
