Diego Godin returns for Atletico today, just in time to meet an angry Barcelona squad at Camp Nou. The center back has missed two games recovering from a hamstring injury, and he is a huge factor in the middle against the magic of M-S-N. Barcelona did have their 39-game unbeaten streak snapped against Real Madrid on Saturday, but they are riding a six game winning streak over Atletico heading into today’s quarterfinal match.
It was less of a letdown than losing to a 10-man Madrid squad, but Messi not scoring his 500th career goal in a Clasico where Johan Cruyff was honored was a little disappointing. Madrid don’t surrender many goals, but Messi can still have his moment in front of the home crowd today. After Gerard Pique served a suspension for yellow cards in the second leg over Arsenal, both teams can field their best available lineups heading into today’s match.
