ATLETICO-MADRID: WLWWW

With Atletico Madrid trailing Barcelona by six points in La Liga, Champions league provide Atletico an opportunity to spoil Barca’s dream of defending their European cup. Athletico Madrid side is believed to be a physical team who rely on their defensive stability and hit teams on counters. With players like Griezmann, Koke, and Correa with sublime pace and not at all shy of tracking back, Atletico Madrid could well and possibly replicate what their derby rivals achieved at the recently concluded El Classico.

On the injury front, Diego Godin is likely to feature against their Liga rivals in a crucial away match and will be carrying the responsibility to stop his own countryman Suarez of MSN. Stefan Savic and Carrasco’s return is also a boost for the Atletico team.

Having thrashed Betis 5-1 in La Liga in the last matchday, Atletico must be high on confidence- since they have been scoring at a pretty spectacular rate all march. Atletico Madrid might be the “underdogs” coming into the match, but Rojiblancs aren’t an easy team to defeat.

Expected Line-up: Jan Oblak, Juanfran, Godin, Hernandez, Filipe Luis, Koke, Gabi, Angel Correa, Saul Niguez, Antoine Griezmann, Fernando Torres. Subs: Moya, Augusto Fernandez, Jesus Gamez, Thomas Partey, Luciano Veitto, Stefan Savic, Yannick Carrasco.

Was the El-Clasico defeat a bliss or something more Barcelona is going to see

F.C. BARCELONA: LDWWW

Having won a treble last season, Barcelona picked up from where they left last season. After the initial hiccups, they have been a high-flying team with 39 matches’ unbeaten streak and are still on route to winning five trophies this season. Having lost to Madrid in ‘Classico’ they still enter this match as the favorites.

Drawing a match and losing the next is evidence that they are not unbeatable. With fatigue likely to have kicked in, the Blaugrana XI has been failing in their link up play. With the business end of the season kicked on, this is the only worry at the Nou Camp and their manager Luis Enrique.

With Aleix Vidal and Jeremy Mathieu- the only injury concern for Barcelona; the former who suffered an abductor injury in training is likely to miss the quarterfinal clash. Other than that, Enrique has all his best players ready for action.

Expected Line-up: Ter Stegen, Dani Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Jordi Alba, Rakitic, Busquets, Iniesta, Messi, Suarez, Neymar. Subs: Claudio Bravo, Marc Bartra, Sergi Roberto, Arda Turan, Thomas Vermaelen, Munir El Haddadi, Rafinha.

Conclusion:

Two seasons before, these same teams met at this same stage in this competition and it was the Madrid side that advanced to the later stages. Though they are the underdogs, they still haven’t lost their edge. With Barcelona unfurling their mortal side in recent weeks, the winners of this tie (and not the match) could very well turn out to be one of the finalists of Champions league. A draw could be a result, but the attacking flair that these teams have we are likely to see an evenly matched contest with at least a goal or two scored. This is a type of match, where the defense will decide the result and not attack. An upset for at least one set of supporters, but this match promises to be a treat for the neutrals.
