The Copa del Rey is down to its final four sides and Barcelona will host Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou in the second-leg of this semifinals match-up, this Tuesday, February 7, 2017 (12:00 PM Pacific). The first-leg of this match-up ended in a close 2-1 win for Barcelona at the Estadio Vicente Calderon; both teams will bring out its best players and it should be a tremendous game.
Luis Enrique’s men are coming from a convincing 3-0 win over Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, where unlikely players surprised like Paco Alcacer and Aleix Vidal with a goal each. Lionel Messi also managed to get on the score sheet making it four goals in the last five games for the Argentine superstar. In the first-leg 2-1 win over the ‘colchoneros’, Messi did make his presence on the score sheet, as well as Uruguayan phenom Luis Suarez.
Barcelona received an early 2-0 lead in that first-leg, the second goal coming in the 33rd minute of the game. Luis Enrique’s backline led by Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba held the score for the remainder of the game at the Vicente Calderon. Luis Enrique did utilize nearly all his starters for the first encounter between the two teams. It I likely he will do the same in the match-up at the Camp Nou, which should make for an intense game.
All odds are against Diego Simeone’s men coming into this match, as you never want to have even the slightest disadvantage when facing a team like Barcelona. But the Argentine manager has done it before and he should bring out his best elements to make for a tremendous match. The ‘colchoneros’ are coming from a 2-0 win over Leganes in La Liga, where veteran, Fernando Torres scored both goals from the match.
The lone goal-scorer for the ‘rojiblancos’ in the first-leg of this Copa del Rey match-up was the main figure of the team, Antoine Griezmann. The French striker will need to be clinical for Atletico Madrid to advance to the final of the competition. This will be a high-quality match, with high-quality players involved, a must watch for any football fan.
