Atletico Madrid didn’t manage to make positive result in the first leg against FC Barcelona, despite the fact that they had a lead and played very good. After Fernando Torres was sent off in the first half-time, team from Madrid didn’t have many chances to make good result and they lost 2-1. If they were completed the whole game, I’m sure that they would come back unbeaten, but it wasn’t happen. Despite the loss, home side still have a good chance to reach the Semi-finals. In Atletico Madrid still remember 2014 when they eliminated FC Barcelona in the Quarter-finals in the UEFA Champions League and they are looking for to repeat that success. Home team play fantastic this season upfront their supporters. In Primera they lost only once this season and it was a loss against Barcelona 1-2, so this match is another good reason for revenge. It won’t be easy to beat visitors, who play amazing this season, but if they would play the same as they in the first leg, before the red card, I believe that they can make positive result and go through.

FC Barcelona have managed to make an advantage in the first leg and beat Atletico 2-1, but generally their recent performance is not at the high level. That victory was the only one in their last four matches in all competitions and the crisis in team in visible. First, they took only one point against Villarreal 2-2, after that they lost in “El Clásico” against Real Madrid 1-2, while in the last La Liga game Real Sociedad beat them 1-0. Despite all those bad results, Barca still standing at the top of the table, but the difference between them and second Atletico Madrid is only three points, while Real Madrid have only four points less. Visitors are still favorite to make positive result on this match and qualify in the semi finals. They have quality players, but they will have to do their best and it won’t be an easy match for them.
