Atletico Madrid 2-3 Barcelona:
Neymar, Torres, red cards and chaos

The ESPN FC crew react to Barcelona's impressive 3-2 win over Atletico Madrid at the Vicente Calderon.

Dazed and confused, at the final whistle one question got asked repeatedly: What the hell happened? The answer was simple even if the analysis wasn't: pretty much everything happened. Fernando Torres scored after 38 seconds and Neymar scored after eight minutes. There were 11 yellow cards, 5 goals, 2 penalties and 2 reds, not that anyone realised: The first of them whipped out and waved in the players' tunnel at halftime. Jordi Alba was felled by a flag. And Arda Turan threw his boot at the linesman....

Luis Enrique the man with a plan as Barcelona oust Atletico Madrid

Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique was pleased with his side's win over Atletico Madrid in their Copa del Rey quarter-final second leg.

The Barcelona side that made sure of their place in the Spanish Cup semifinals after beating Atletico Madrid 4-2 on aggregate on Wednesday is very different to the one we have become accustomed to. Coach Luis Enrique must take great credit for that.

He has now found a way past Atletico Madrid three times in 17 days and will take great pleasure in reversing the crisis, bizarrely created after the 1-0 defeat at Real Sociedad at the beginning of January.

Luis Enrique has said from the very beginning...

Bale capable of plugging gap left by suspended Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has received a 2-match ban for lashing out at an opponent at Cordoba on the weekend, but will be available for the Atletico Madrid clash.

It took Gareth Bale six minutes to step into Cristiano Ronaldo's boots and save Real Madrid from a surprise stalemate at struggling, albeit in-form, Cordoba at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti's side looked set to drop five points from a possible 12 in La Liga since the turn of the year with the clock ticking over to 88 minutes and the league leaders without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who had been sent for an early shower for lashing out at Cordoba defender Edimar. Madrid were frustrated, arguably...

Cristiano Ronaldo impression, as performed by Francesco Totti

Cristiano Ronaldo is so famous that even his footballing peers like to do impressions of him. The Real Madrid maestro emitted a rather odd noise when he won the FIFA Ballon d'Or earlier this month, but evidently there is someone who is keen to take the crown of "social media king" from him.

That man is Roma legend Francesco Totti who, after his selfie antics, has now taken to doing some rather funny impersonations, as noted by teammate Marco Borriello.

How Simeone made Griezmann an even better player

Following Atletico Madrid's convincing win over Rayo Vallecano, Los Colchoneros remain just three points behind Barcelona in the league table.

Atletico Madrid's 30 million euro man is finally reaching his optimal performance level. The remaking of Antoine Griezmann has been a long slog since becoming the second most expensive player in the Spanish champions' history. Though he had to endure frustration, confidence-testing goal droughts and countless early substitutions along the way, unwavering faith from manager Diego Simeone is now paying off for the Frenchman. Seven goals in the past five La Liga rounds, more than double the tally...

Illarramendi damaging his career by not leaving Real

Lucas Silva has been officially unveiled as Real Madrid's latest signing, insisting he feels he has a debt to repay to the club.

Despite all the milestones Asier Illarramendi has reached, the next five days might be the most important of his career. The Basque defensive midfielder has fallen so far out of favour at the Bernabeu that it seems impossible he will be able to turn his Real Madrid career around; at least while Carlo Ancelotti is in charge, and all signs point to the Italian staying at the club for quite some time.

The only sign Illarramendi should be taking note of at this stage of the season is the one pointing...
