    elliott gilmore: man united must be looking at this 10 man Atletico side and think they have a good chance against this Barca side

    Jeester: If we lose De Gea, we should definitely go for Oblak. Dude’s save ratio is insane and it’s not like they’re all straight at him

  3. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Luis Suarez with a good cross to the far stick but Saul heads it behind before Malcom can get there.


    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet is booked for fouling Thomas Partey on the halfway line.

    “No party in my gaff” he probably said.

  5. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Was that Atletico’s chance? Antoine Griezmann crosses from the left, Rodri gets up high but his towering header is over the bar. Jose Gimenez was just behind him trying to get a head of his own.


    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Gerard Pique concedes a free-kick for a foul on Alvaro Morata. He’s not going to get booked… until he mouths off to the ref. Now he gets his yellow.

    Footballers never learn.

  7. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Antoine Griezmann takes the ball off Lionel Messi and does well to win a free-kick off a Barca defender. They are crowding Messi out.


    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    A good Luis Suarez challenge to win the ball off Uruguay team-mate Diego Godin, who thinks he was fouled.

    Seconds later Atleti midfielder/left-back Saul is booked for a foul on Sergio Busquets.

  9. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Atletico’s Jan Oblak, one of the best keepers in the world – maybe the best – makes his seventh save. Lionel Messi has a shot blocked, Malcom volleys the rebound but it’s held by the keeper.

  10. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Antoine Griezmann steps up to take the free-kick… but it’s straight down the throat of Marc-Andre ter Stegen (not literally).

  11. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Free-kick to Atletico in a really dangerous position. Gerard Pique shoves Angel Correa over from behind. It’s a definite foul, although Pique doesn’t agree.

  12. Get Involved


    Hasan Anfield: Bayern going for their 7th title in a row, Juve in Italy going for their 8th title in a row, PSG 20 points clear in France, and La Liga shared between 2 clubs. No side has successfully defended the EPL for 10 years, that shows EPL is the best league in the world.

  13. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Lionel Messi is growing into this game BIG TIME. He has another run with the ball, goes past two defenders and then shoots from the edge of the area. Jan Oblak almost fumbles his shot but recovers in time.


    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Attacking change by Barca as winger Malcom replaces fellow Brazilian Arthur, a holding midfielder. Two names from the Fred mould of Brazilian naming there.

  15. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Peak Lionel Messi as he glides from his own half with the ball like a hovercraft before slipping the ball through to Luis Suarez, but the striker is expertly denied by Jan Oblak. Great football.

  16. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Another deflected Lionel Messi shot from 18 yards saved by Jan Oblak.

  17. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Barcelona have scored in each of their last 13 La Liga home matches against Atletico, since a 2-0 defeat on 6 February 2005.

  18. Post update

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Thomas Partey crosses and Alvaro Morata dives for it but can’t get a proper touch. Might have been a scorpion kick attempt?


    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    It’s Diego Simeone’s second ‘forward for a full-back’ sub. Does he think he’s me on Football Manager?

    Alvaro Morata is on for Filipe Luis. Saul goes into left-back.

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Atletico Madrid are actually playing really well, you wouldn’t know they’re down to 10 men. They just aren’t creating much.


  1. Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent site!

  2. Those are yours alright! . We at least need to get these people stealing images to start blogging! They probably just did a image search and grabbed them. They look good though!

  3. This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen

  4. I simply needed to thank you so much once again. I am not sure the things that I would’ve accomplished in the absence of the actual advice contributed by you regarding that question. Previously it was a fearsome crisis in my position, but taking note of this specialized style you solved that took me to leap for fulfillment. I am grateful for the assistance and then hope you are aware of a great job you were undertaking training most people by way of your web page. Most likely you haven’t got to know all of us.

  5. Thank you, I have recently been looking for information approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the best I have discovered till now. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you certain in regards to the supply?

  6. Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  7. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice procedures and we are looking to swap strategies with others, please shoot me an email if interested.

  8. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any means you’ll be able to remove me from that service? Thanks!
