Seldom have the calls for the manager’s head been louder than they were earlier this season. With a volatile fan base such as Barcelona’s, rarely does a week pass without Enrique falling under scrutiny for his decision making. It was a similar story at the weekend when the Spaniard endured criticism for his squad rotation – despite his side’s comfortable victory over Athletic Bilbao.
And while Barca may have secured an important away win over Atletico the Wednesday before, fans were equally indignant about the manner in which their La Liga rivals had been allowed to fight their way back into the tie. Faced with criticism from all angles, Enrique needs a rousing victory from his men tonight.
In the first-leg 2-1 win over the “colchoneros”, Messi did make his presence on the score sheet, as well as Uruguayan phenom Luis Suarez. Having not won at the home to Spanish champions since February 2006, Atletico need to win by two goals to progress.
