36 mins: Goal!!! Griezmann plants a header beyond Ter Stegen from the penalty box. Lovely cross form Saul Niguez. No chance for the keeper to stop that who dived to his left.
88 mins: Goal!!! Griezmann slots the ball to his right. Ter Stegen should have saved diving to his left, but can’t keep it out. A 2-0 lead for Atletico on the night.

Starting line up :

Atletico Madrid: Oblak, Juanfran, Hernandez, Godin, Filipe Luis, Fernandez, Gabi, Koke, Niguez, Carrasco, Griezmann. Sub: Savic, Moya, Gamez, Kranevitter, Correa, Partey, Vietto

Barcelona: ter Stegen, Alves, pique, Mascherano, Alba, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta, Messi, Neymar, Suarez. Sub: Barta, Roberto, El Haddadi, Douglas, Correia, Bravo, Turan.

Barcelona lead Atletico 2-1 on aggregate going into the second leg. however, Aletico have that vital away goal. They need to just score one goal here and they are into the semi finals of the UEFA Champions league. Barcelona will be on all out attack mode to try and defend their title. With the like of Messi, Suarez and Neymar known as MSN, who will be looking to add to their tally of goals. Also watch out for the mid field presence of Iniesta and Rakitic who can also score goals when the club need them. Atletico will be hoping their defense hold up again this world class attacking line up. They have shown that defense is their strong side. With Fernando Torres out suspended Antoine Griezmann will have to step up to the game. Will be an interesting clash.
