BARCELONA ELIMINATED FROM UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

FC Barcelona are finally out of the current UEFA Champions League campaign. The La Liga champions were eliminated from the competition after a 2-0 loss to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.

Barcelona despite their first leg win were unable secure the needed point against their La Liga rivals. Coming into Tuesday’s night game, Barca were with 2-1 advantage over Atletico.

However, Luis Enrique’s men were prevented from progressing to the round of four after fierce rampage from Atletico resulted in two unreplied goals from the host team.

A brace from Antoine Griezmann was all that Diego Simeone’s fierce side needed to tear Barca apart. The French man opened scoring with 36 minutes in the first 45 minutes before adding the second from the spot in the 88th minute.

Elsewhere, some Catalonan supporters believed that Barca’s ace- Lionel Messi was to blame for Barca’s exit. The Argentine skipper and captain has failed to score in the last five encounters against Atletico Madrid.

Wednesday night defeat to Atletico made it the second time in as many times Barca would bow out to the same opponent at this stage of the competition.
