CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RESULTS | FC BARCELONA | AT MADRID

Champions League Football tonight with two Spanish Football Clubs down for Group games. Here are brief round-ups of the matches, along with final results & goalscorers.

Olympikos - FC Barcelona

FC BARCELONA travelled to Athens to play OLYMPIAKOS. The final result was a 0 - 0 draw. Excellent game from the Greeks which put Barça on the back foot with inteligente defending & dangerous counter-attacks. 

Perhaps Barça did not put the intensity needed as they have the Group covered & next stage qualification assured. Said this Barça did attempt to score & they came close on various occasions hit the post & shaving the goal. However, the Greeks held firm & will be proud with the performance. 

At Madrid - Qarabag

Disaster for ATLETICO DE MADRID which could not find the needed victory against QARABAG. The final result of a 1 - 1 draw puts the future of Atletico de Madrid continuing in Champions League very dark & bleak. So bad was the night for the Spaniards that they finished with 10 men after defender Savic was sent off in the second half.

It´s obvious, as seen also in La Liga, that Atletico is going through a terrible patch in form & with their Football. There is a lack of goal finishing & some would add that Coach Simeone is too conservative in his tactics: more defensive than attacking.


Either way, this result is the nightmare the Club wanted to avoid as not being able to progress in Champions League means the loss of millions & millions of euros & prestige. Now Atletico has to defeat, & well, their following opponents which are Chelsea FC & AC Roma. No easy feat at all.

Goalscorers:
Michel 40th min , 0 - 1

Tomas 56th min, 1 - 1

Tomorrow Champions League continues with Real Madrid & Sevilla FC down for Group games.
