Live Stream: Watch Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid live online

The Champions League is back this week and Barcelona take on Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the competition this week.

Atletico Madrid have shown over the last few years that they are a force to be reckoned with and the Catalan giants will have to be at their very best to get through to the semi-finals.

Luis Enrique is aware of Atletico’s strengths and knows that Barcelona’s win over Atletico in the League won’t mean much here. This is a completely different scenario and it will be quite a challenge beating Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid over the two legs.

The away side are one of the best defensive sides in Europe and will be desperate to head back with a draw and an away goal from Camp Nou.

It should be a fascinating encounter between La Liga’s best attack and best defence.

After a loss against Real Madrid in El Clasico last week, Barcelona will be determined to bounce back with a statement win and this is a great opportunity for them to put things right in front of their own fans.
