Champions League: Atletico Madrid Chased Barcelona out of the competition.


Atletico Madrid blew the Champions League wide open last night as a sensational Antoine Griezmann brace dumped defending champs Barcelona out of the competition.
The Frenchman’s 36th-minute header would have been enough to send through the Madrid side on away goals, but he doubled his tally from the spot late-on to leave Barca’s hope of historic back-to-back trebles in tatters.
The visitors had masses of possession throughout, but failed to create clear chances as their slump continued.
The league leaders have dropped eight of their last nine La Liga points as a dip in form has hit Lionel Messi and company at the worst possible time. The Argentine is now over 400 minutes without a goal and the best defensive unit in Europe never looked like allowing him through.
Atletico didn’t have much of the ball but with it they were much like their defence – direct and violent. Their first goal came through one of their trademark swift counter-attacks, and the second came after a blatant handball in the box from Andres Iniesta.
