Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Fernando TorresWatch Atletico Madrid v Barcelona in the second leg of the compelling UEFA Champions quarter final. This is undoubtedly the tie of the competition. Atletico are one of the few sides Barcelona and manager Luis Enrique genuinely fear. It was Simeone’s Barcelona who put paid to Barcelona’s Champions League campaign three years ago under Tata Martino (when Atletico would go on to appear in the final in Lisbon).

Barcelona have ex Atleti star Arda joining the great striking line up of Neymar, Suarez and Leo Messi, with midfielders Iniesta and Rakitic behind. Sprucing up Barcelona’s attitude and style of attacking football is where Manager Luis Enrique made most advances last year, along with the delightful (for all true fans) rejuvenation of Leo Messi.

Yet again the colchoneros will meet the blaugrana in a potentially explosive UEFA Chapions match. These games between such old rivals are celebrated throughout Europe for the high quality of football on offer and usually a high scoring result. Atleti are one of the few teams to have genuinely worried Barcelona in recent years.

This should be an end-to-end match with goals given the attacking style of play of both teams. Diego Simeone has pulled off the miraculous feat of consistently seeing top players culled by the European fat cats (Costa, Villa, Luis Felipe, Arda Turan…) but getting back up on his feet and challenging again, apparently even stronger. It is almost as if the more blows Atletico receive the fitter they are for the fight. Again for this season, with the accolades still ringing in their ears, Atletico Madrid will rebuild their side and get down to work.
