Atletico Madrid Sends Barcelona Packing From Champions League


Atletico Madrid have eliminated Barcelona from the Champions League with a 2-0 victory at the Vincente Calderon, which gave the Madrid side a 3-2 aggregate victory in the quarter-final tie between both clubs.

Atletico’s victory ends Barca’s attempt to become the first club to defend the Champions League title in its present format and leave the Catalan side’s season in trouble.

Following a 39-game unbeaten run, a poor run of form have seen Barca lose to straight games in the league prior to tonight’s game.

Atletico meanwhile proceed to the Semi-Final alongside Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester City.
