"It's difficult for Barcelona to not assume the role of favorite," he said, "that's how it is in every competition. But accepting that doesn't mean you will prove on the pitch that you are the favorites, and we will demand a lot more from ourselves. "In the league you get a lot more chances than a competition like this one, where you just need one good or bad night."
In addition to both teams' money-lines, soccer oddsmakers have also set the OVER/UNDER at a combined total of 2½ goals and the chances that there will be a draw in this Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona live stream feed are 12/5 [+240].
