Highlights: Barcelona Versus Atletico Madrid

3/1/09

Seven goals in total in this back and forth match.

It looked as though Barcelona had this match sealed up when they led after a superb goal by Henry and another darting dribbling run by Messi. But Atletico Madrid quickly got back into the match with a Diego Forlan goal from the top of the box.

Later, a silky little pass by Gudjohnsen put Henry in for his second goal, and it seemed, would secure the win. However, a dubious Henry caused penalty kick and a late goal by Sergio Aguero put Atletico on top, 4-3. The home crowd for Atletico went ballistic in the Vicente Calderon..

Barcelona has struggle in the back at times this year, not clearing the ball when they need to and then their keeper doesn’t make the game winning save when he’s called upon to do so. There were numerous chances for both teams in this match though. Eto’o for one wasn’t his usual self, as he had a couple chances to put the game away. Take a look at the highlights.
