The first leg between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona was a game of two halves and Atletico fans will be hoping that the tie will be one of two legs. They need to recover from a 1-2 defeat at the Vicente Calderon and will have to score at least two without letting their opponents to score at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

The bad news for Atletico Madrid is that Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta are in the squad with one of the two likely two start.

The good news for Atletico Madrid is that Lionel Messi, Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Alba are all one yellow away from missing the final and Luis Enrique might be reluctant to use them, especially the defenders in that list.

Lucas is in Atletico’s squad list after allegations of domestic abuse at the end of last week that could see him spend time in jail. Thomas Partey returns to the squad also and gives Simeone some much-needed options in the middle of the field. Other than that, talk has surrounded Fernando Torres enjoying his time against Barcelona with 10 in 18 games, and his two at the weekend will assure him a place on the field to start the game - or so you would think. Antoine Griezmann, on the other hand, has never won at the Camp Nou with either Atletico or Real Sociedad.
