Atletico recorded their fifth draw of the season in Catalonia on Saturday. Espanyol held Diego Simeone’s in a goalless stalemate. The Vicente Calderon based side is most probably out of contention for the La Liga title. Yet they can still re-acquire the third spot in the remaining 11 matches. Last year’s Champions League runners-up have made it to the quarter-finals after defeating the Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of round of 16 on Tuesday. Atletico held on to the 1 – 0 lead from the first half to the extra time. The 1 – 1 aggregate score called for penalty shoot outs to decide the winner. Fernando Torres scored the last penalty for the Spanish side as they won 3 – 2 against the German club.

Barcelona are unstoppable at the moment and this momentum can help them pick up three points against their fierce rivals in El Clasico. Real Madrid will travel to Camp Nou on Sunday to battle for the top spot in La Liga. The Catalans won 2 – 0 at Eibar on Saturday, with Leo Messi grabbing both the goals. The Argentine skipper is in outstanding form and can even outclass Cristiano Ronaldo by the end of this season.

Real Madrid are back to winning ways as Gareth Bale spearheaded the Spanish giants to their 21st win of the season. The Welshman has faced the boos and jeers of Bernabeu faithful this season and he responded his critics in brilliant fashion by scoring both the goals against Levante. The Portuguese ace, Cristiano Ronaldo is also not happy with the response of the fans. It won’t be a big surprise if the 30-year-old moves on to another league.
