Real reserves thrash Granada, Barca's 'MSN' hit 100 mark

Atletico's right-back situation has already reach crisis point but Simeone says, "Juanfran is getting better, developing well from his injury.

We still have to play a flawless game in the second leg on Wednesday and then we have three finals in La Liga". The Champions League semi-final might be troubling, but with their 3 goal advantage, that should be no problem as well. They showed exactly why they have been relegated this season and Tony Adams has a massive job ahead of him if he wants to get them promoted immediately.

"I'm excited about seeing the fans, I'm proud to have these players, it makes me very happy to see the atmosphere we're playing in". The thrilling 3-2 victory, capped with a last minute victor from Lionel Messi, put them level on points with their rivals.

Just a few minutes later and he made it an even 20 with an even more spectacular goal.

"We have a very hard match on Wednesday".

Saul Niguez scored the only goal of the game as he hit a 69th minute victor to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win at home to Eibar.

Fran Escriba's men have beaten Atletico twice, held Real to a draw at the Bernabeu, played out successive goalless draws with Sevilla and were moments away from winning the reverse fixture against Barca, when only a last-gasp Lionel Messi free-kick denied them the three points. Griezmann, the team's top star, hasn't scored in four matches. It has won 29 of its last 35 European games at the stadium, with only two losses.

Coach Zinedine Zidane will be able to count on a fresh Cristiano Ronaldo, who was rested in the team's Spanish league win over Granada on Saturday.

Barcelona helped their title aspirations with a huge win over Real Madrid in the last El Clasico.

Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid CF celebrates after scoring the second goal during the La Liga match between Granada CF v Real Madrid CF at Estadio Nuevo Los Carmenes on May 6, 2017 in Granada, Spain. It seems that Real is on its way to the Champions League finals, unless Atletico can somehow pull off a 4-0 win over Los Blancos in Game 2 on May 10.
