Messi played wide right and Neymar wide left. Nice fail. It is already discussed below. Why comment if you don't read the other comments? Are you talking to yourself?
I'd like to see Messi play wide right like when he started. that, with Neymar wide left should stretch defenses since they generally crowd the middle. Alexis playing center with Cesc behind him.
villa is having a great game.But too unlucky
Yes, Garcia was a right midfielder in 4-4-2 and several of Barcelona's players are in the wrong positions. It's weird for a site based on stats, that even has it's own player positions map, to be making basic errors with formation and player positions.
Neymar overrated as usual

Absolutely deserved! Congratulations from a Barca fan! Great game for both teams, Barca potency completely missing from this game. Hope they can recover in La Liga and Copa del Rey! Congratulations and all the best to brave Simeone team!
Iniesta left central midfielder. Neymar Left wing, Fabregas Central, Messi Right Wing. This is clear in player positions in match report. And I believe 4-4-2 for Atletico.
Your completely wrong watch serie a and you will understand why he is a beast , i would reccommend europa league but juve are less powerful there , unless you are talking about money of course !
Villa 8 is fine
35 tackles shows how efficient damage control Atleti has.
Atletico's defend should be way higher and villa is 8.8 rated in my book
Pogba is massively overrated .
6 is the default rating for any player and if he play like total shit then he's gonna get worse , real's defend yesterday play like a punch of junkies and still they get a close rating why you havent been upset about that ?
Dani Alves rated above average? Me estás tomando el pelo.
I would pay 61 million for KOKE ! Consistently brilliant , only few can match him right now. Pogba go home .
how is messi's overall rating so much higher than neymar's?
DiM - 6 is a default for brand Missi , the good boy. Dont complain or you will be considered bad.
iPredict = Atleti is Serie A team -__-
Who cares uefalona is out !! Lets barca worry abt that and their ban...........KARMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa
You say webb did fine because Madrid is not Atletico !
Have you even saw godin's tackle or you want a link for that ?
I actually saw him in madrid not long ago if your wondering where he is
If your 21 you can look for him LoooL
Dont cross your line pathetico fan , its because of you rivals arent praised. What a bad sport you're with a pristine username, knob!
Webb did fine , the fouls were too soft for a penalty and both teams made most of it , spanish refs would easily fall for that.
Actually webb hasn't been fair to both of the teams
You can say otherwise but think of this , you cant see the whole view from one career , should be atleast 2 pens in this game but hell why im saying this its all about imotions here
MISSING: Lionel Messi - last seen scoring penalties against La Liga teams
Atletico are a much nicer to club than Real or Barca.
Atletico are more likeable, the other 2 are a disgrace.
6.5 for messi? he didn't do anything.
No penalty , No party for Missi
Welldone Atleti !
Barca can never win without controversey
Howard Webb dint fall into trap of uefalona's diving , crying and cheating....welldone baldy
Blitz & Bradley are spotted coming down to earth at rapid speed lol...
Suck it uefalona !
Great game by atletico so unlucky in the first 20 minutes and those goddamn crossbars !
Wish they end up playing against madrid so they have a better chance reaching the final
Forza Simeone Forza Atletico
Respect to Atleti.
Such a collective compact defending , interception and blocking i havent seen in long time..The moment barca entered Atleti final 3rd they were robbed of ball consistently , thats high level of tackling & anticipation of threat considering how swift and slaloming players barca have got and how cleanly they tackled , no one got booked at all (koke was booked for protest)! Also in attacking department they were unlucky not to score more than 1. Remarkable set of fans too !
And kudos to Howard Webb not falling into the trap of simulations , diving , pseudo-fouls and unnecessary card distribution. Impressive refereeing in CL , spanish refs would have bowed down immediately there.
Excited for Semi's , welcome Atleti.
People immediatly hating on webb because he didnt give atletico a clear penalty !
But even more clear tackle by godin on fabregas is just not because ... Why not !!
What are you fucking kidding me ? So that fabregas tackle was just normal one cuz you hate the team !
Thank god your not a referee
As a Barca fan I'm really sad but I want to praise Atletico, they were perfect! I hope they can win the champions league...Good Luck Simeone
Even with the support from referees... you have failed. Isn't that sad...
Atletico will win the Champions League and La Liga!!!
Webb has bottled it. Clear penalty
clear penalty for atletico
Yes 4-4-2 Atletico. Neymar is staying on the left wing for Barcelona. Iniesta is in the midfield 3. Fabregas is in the middle of the front 3 and Messi is on the right.
Webb (y)...different referee 7 penalties for barca :)
it should have been 3-0 by now
So much Barça hate
Atletico is clearly 4-4-2 without the ball
How can one team be so lucky
woodwork 3 times for ATL. unlucky...if UEFAlona will pass...only referee can change the match
I hope Atl. will win...I hate Barca
Barcelona are fucking lucky.
Atletico are all over Barcelona like a rash LOL
Let's just hope this is a fair result. I don't want to see Barcelona winning because of the officials. Hopefully it's 4-4-2 vs 4-3-3 and not 4-4-2 vs 4-3-3-3.
i want a victory of atletico by 2 or more goals, someone with me?????
#Mandrake #Barcelona #Stats Barcelona have seen their opponent reduced to 10 men in 4 of their last eight Champions League matches #PenaltyBarcelona
Overall in CL history, Barcelona have seen 27 red cards given to opponents; 9 more than any other side in the competition via @FourFourTwo
Football where there is no justice is not always play well to win this game, I think the tough teams on the kidney and the winner will show after 90 minutes or 120 minutes and enjoy this good game
I really hope Atleti win the whole thing.
@blitz - uefalona will always have an edge over other teams because of ref factor , FIFA played well to deny those alegations and ban you epiphanically to make it look like they have no involvement in all those cringeworthy bias towards uefalona but football fans over the world know the truth because they have suffered because of it and it wont go down easy in years to come whether ref is by your side or not. Amen
@betbombs - this is 2014 & Atletico are much stronger , they maybe man down in offense but they have the same water-tight defense. Not to forget they play in front of their superb fans and lightning atmosphere
Atleti has 26 tackles per game , that makes them fierce under-dog to win the CL , they will overcome barca no doubt, simeone is a genius
Barca to go through with a lacklustre performance by Messi, you either foul him and get red carded or simply be will score when his team really need him, he's never let Barcelona or it's fans down, he's starting tonight and it will be a Measi show, Atletico are a strong and robust side but the way Diego has set this team will get exposed tonight, physical and defence teams like Atletico normally get found out at the back, Messi won't make no mistake tonight, sorry. 0:2 final score
My favourite here.. hmm, hard to say. From one side, a club where almost all the players are either begging for a contact so they can dive, pretend and complain or the other which is blatantly being helped by referees while their awesome fans deny that. Well, at least one is going out :)
Two opposite teams clashing in, what might be, the most contested game in the world right now! Simeone's team is an improved version of Mou's Chelsea, and Barca is the most powerful attacking force in the world! What more can you wish for?! As Barca fan, I hope we can overturn this tie and have another glorious eruopean night. If not, Atletico deserves it as much as Barca does, so no bad feelings. If Barca goes through I feel only BM would be a favourit vs Barca in semis, RM and CHE are also capable of defeating them, but I think Barca has the edge over those teams.
barca win 0-3 or 0-2
barca to win with more than 3 goles diffrence...
2-1 ! Courtois MOTM
@Hellreaper No goal before the 30th minute @ 1.83 seems quite decent to me
1-2 or 1-3
wtf should I bet in this match??
Atletico to Qualify
Atletico Madrid to WIN---> 2-1
If Diego Costa and Arda Turan is missing, it would be difficult for Atletico to beat Barca. In this match I dont think that home advantage will favor the host. An early goal from Barca may be responsed by Atletico and again 1-1 draw would happen. Otherwise Barca will progress.
Atletico can do this!!
Atletico Madrid 1-0 FC Barcelone
Very hard match...
messinho needs to re-do his schooling because he makes no sense even after trying his best.
As long as these b*tches lve me
I admire Atleti and many madridistas do or even for a fact any level headed wise football fan would. Its like supporting a uprising cause amongst dual dominance which is needed in la liga. In your words i'm rooting for Atleti not only as they play our eternal rivals but as a fact of extra-mile admiration and much wider array of reasons which as narrowed down by you as 'hate' in diplomatic way i suppose
Would have given you a "like" if it weren't for the fact that you're not pro-Atletico fan, but anti-Barca. This type of people is annoying as heck.
Pinto > Courtois ?? Really?
1-1, Barca win on penalties
0-0 , away goal rule comes into play. Karma
1-2 to Barca! InshaAllah
I have a feeling this will go into penalties. (I have a really bad track record with predictions :P )
Atletico Madrid have made the most tackles per game in the Champions League this season, with 25.89.
