Atlético-Barcelona, a clash of styles for a place at semifinals

A clash of styles in Vicente Calderón between Atlético de Madrid’s strength and Barcelona’s ball’s possession and quality will resolve today a place at Champions League’s semifinals in a very equal challenge, after the 1-1 in the first leg match in Camp Nou.

Draws have been continuous in games between both teams this season. Since last August, with their double confrontation in the Spanish Supercopa (1-1 and 0-0) and until last Tuesday in the European competition (1-1), going through the 0-0 with which their game in the 18th Spanish League session ended.

Neither Atlético’s power, tactical exactitude and counter-attack have been able to beat Barcelona’s accuracy, possession and technique, nor vice versa.

They now compete with each other one more time, with a position at Champions League semifinals at stake and with a result that keeps everything open, but that forces Barça to score at least one goal.

A ticket for semifinals in Champions League has been a remaining challenge for Atlético for 40 years. They have not reached that stage in the highest continental competition since 1974, precisely during the season when they finished runner-up against Bayern Munich. Barcelona has reached this stage in the last six seasons.
     
That bis what they will try tomorrow in Vicente Calderón, where Barcelona has not been defeated since February 2010 and where Atlético has been almost unbeatable this season, with 20 victories, four draws and only one defeat -during the Copa del Rey against Real Madrid (0-2)- in their 25 games at home this season.

 Probable lineups:

       Atlético de Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Filipe; Gabi, Tiago; Raúl García, Koke, Villa; Diego Costa o Adrián.

       Barcelona: Pinto; Alves, Bartra, Mascherano, Alba; Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta; Messi, Cesc y Neymar.

       Referee: Howard Webb (Inglaterra).

       Stadium: Vicente Calderón.

       Time: 20.45.
