Atletico-Madrid-vs-Barcelona

Los Colchoneros look to bounce back in their second leg matchup with Barcelona after falling in the Camp Nou. It is very doable, seeing as how they only face a one goal deficit after they conceded a  very late goal to Lionel Messi, but it will be quite the challenge indeed. Atletico Madrid is looking to end Barcelona’s six game winning streak in which they have looked absolutely stunning, something Elche would know about as they were thrashed 6-0 this past weekend. Atleti also won this past weekend 2-1,

This is the third matchup between these two teams just this month but have not beaten Barcelona in their last three meetings, and have been outscored 5-2 in those three match ups.

The bright side for Los Colchoneros is that the last time these two teams played in El Vincento Calderon, they won, but that was all the way in April.

Griezmann is confident that they have what it takes to comeback and said “If we didn’t believe we would come back, we wouldn’t go onto the field.”

Griezmann scored twice in  Atleti’s 3-1 win over the weekend and he will have to be on that same level if not better if they want a chance to knock off Barcelona & Real Madrid in consecutive Copa Del Rey tournament rounds, which has not been done since 2006 when Real Zaragoza beat Barcelona in the Quarter Finals and Real Madrid in the Semi Finals.
Both teams will most likely come out with the exact same line-ups and this time around I believe the home team will once again come out on top, only this time, by a wider margin.

Prediction: Atletico Madrid 2:0 Barcelona

The match kicks off at 8:00pm GMT.

5 Reasons Why Antoine Griezmann Is Loved By All

  1. He is one of the best footballers in the world

The primary inspiration behind why we as a whole love Antoine Griezmann is basic – he is one of the best footballers on the planet. He and Luis Suarez are two ludicrously gifted footballers who have figured out how to be appropriate in the blend for the verbal confrontation about the best footballer of 2016. There is a case to be made that if the aftereffects of the two finals the couple included in (Champions League and Euro) had been distinctive, Griezmann may have been delegated the best to the detriment of Ronaldo. While alternate names all end up nearing or past their thirties, Griezmann still has a long profession in front of him to engage us – and if his season via season transfer so far is anything to pass by, we will have ourselves one astounding footballer to discuss for quite a long time.

The Argentine was a defensive midfielder, fearless and aggressive in his game play. Simeone pressed hard to win the ball back and so does his Atletico players. There is a passion and zeal to win in the Atletico players which was a big trait of Simeone back when he was a player.
