Anyway, Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid should be an epic encounter at the Nou Camp as it comes just three days after Real Madrid went to Barca and ended their 39-game unbeaten run.

Luis Enrique’s side will fancy their chances of advancing but Alteti is just behind them in the La Liga standings and Diego Simeone’s boys will keep it tight in the first leg.

In the other UCL last eight first leg, Bayern Munich host Benfica at the Allianza Arena with Pep Guardiola’s men the big favorites against the reigning Portuguese champs. Benfica will look to keep it tight but with Robert Lewandoswki, Thomas Muller, Franck Ribery and Douglas Costa around, they’ll have their work cut out in Bavaria.
