Jordi Alba spoke to the Barça TV programme ‘El Marcador’ after the game on Tuesday and made it clear that he's relishing the return trip to the Calderon: "we'll have to go with all guns blazing in Madrid if we want to reach the semis - we'll need to put a really good performance. Atletico Madrid are a tough team to play and we've drawn every game with them so far".

Alba was philosophical about Tuesday’s draw: “on the negative side, we wanted to win and we didn’t, but on the positive side we did play well . We had possession in the forst half, but weren’t able to create many chances, which we certainly did after the break”.Neymar's putting in a great season, He looks great to me The Catalan also praised Atletico : “it’s true that they make it hard to play against them, they have some top quality players and they never stop running”.

Neymar what could prove a vital equaliser and his teammate backed him to succeed at the Club: “he’s putting in a great season, He looks great to me and he’s a player who’ll give the Barça fans lots to be happy about. The more the other team kick him, the more he likes to take on responsibility”.
