Suarez Double Secures Barca Comeback Win

UEFA Champions League 
 
Result: Barcelona 2-1 Atletico
 
Date: 5 April 2016
 
Venue: Camp Nou
 
Barcelona came back from a goal down to beat Atletico 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie on Tuesday.
 
The Catalans should have been 1-0 up in the 21st minute when a great cross from Dani Alves picked out Neymar, but the Brazilian sent his free header from close range over the bar.
 
However, it was the Rojiblancos who hit the front a few minutes later. Koke found some room to work with just outside the area and played it on for Fernando Torres who slotted coolly.
 
Unfortunately for the traveling support, Torres fell from hero to zero in the 35th minute as he was shown a second yellow card for sliding into Busquets from behind. 
 
Barca had a whole host of chances just after the break as Lionel Messi produced some magic dribbling before forcing a save from Oblak, and sent an overhead kick over the bar after a cross found him.
 
Neymar also hit the woodwork with a shot and the rebound fell for Messi, but he was then tackled in the nick of time by Luis.
 
The hosts finally found their equaliser in the 63rd minute when Luis Suarez put the ball in the back of the net from Jordi Alba's shot-pass.
 
The Uruguayan was at it again in the 74th minute as he put the Blaugrana ahead with a powerful header that beat Oblak to find the target.
