FC Barcelona play very good this season in the UEFA Champions League and they are one of the main candidates to win this competition. In La Liga they are standing at the top of the table and they are the main candidate to win the title, despite the fact that Real Madrid beat them 1-2 at Camp Nou, they still have 7 points more that Real and 6 points more than Atletico Madrid. In the 1/8 finals, FC Barcelona eliminated Arsenal beating them in both matches, 0-2 at Emirates and 3-1 upfront their supporters. Without any doubt, home side are big favorites to qualify in the next round, but Atletico Madrid have very strong squad and it won’t be an easy job for FC Barcelona. Home team failed to win in the last two matches against Villarreal 2-2 and Real Madrid 1-2, so this will be another tough match for them, but very important. They are under pressure and have to beat Atletico.
