Atletico Madrid Vs Barcelona Live Online Commentary
Atletico Madrid have drawn their last 3 games in all tournaments and are surely now out of the La Liga title race. However that may only serve to focus their attentions more on the Copa del Rey. This will be the final time a Spanish Cup match is played at Atletico home stadium – Vicente Calderon, which should help generate a perfect atmosphere, which should help the hosts. As regards injury news, centre-def Jose Maria Gimenez and striker Angel Correa both picked up injuries last time out and will be missing here. Yannick Carrasco reacted angrily to being substituted at Alaves but Diego Simeone has suggested that won’t be held against him.
Meanwhile, Real Betis’ decent performance and referee’s critical mistake stopped Barcelona’s fantastic five-win streak last weekend away from home at Benito Villamarin. Blaugrana had a clear goal disallowed as the main referee could not see that the ball was well behind the line which left head coach Luis Enrique and his team four points behind their arch-rivals Real Madrid at the summit. The match-packed schedule continues as the Catalans have only two days of rest before the travel to Vicente Calderon and the first leg of Copa del Rey semifinal with Atletico Madrid. Barca netted at least four goals in three of their last five matches meaning that Atleti’s defense will be on a serious challenge this Wednesday. Touching Barca squad news: midfield duo Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta is missing again.
