Highlights from Barcelona's incredibly important win over Atletico Madrid

Well that was some game. Barcelona came out firing on all cylinders in the first half, forcing the opponents to play as poor of a defensive game they have played since Diego Simeone has taken over the reigns. Led by their front three, Barcelona were creating chance after chance, but even though several of them went begging, the Catalans still finished the half up by a score of 2-0.

The second half didn't see Barcelona dominate their opponents to the tune of the first as Atletico did well to assert their style of play, their physical style of play. Aided by some interesting calls from good friend Alberto Undiano Mallenco, Atletico were able to get on the scoreboard through a well converted penalty kick, but Barcelona countered with a late goal of their own to secure the win for the home side.
