Javier Mascherano says that Barcelona are feeling confident about their hopes of reaching the Champions League semi-final.
The club secured a 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid in the first leg at the Camp Nou. However, there have been several warning signs about the club’s poor form in recent weeks. Following the recent loss in the El Clasico to Real Madrid, Barcelona could have easily lost this game had it not been for the referee sending-off Fernando Torres with 30 minutes left in the game. Hence, there is a feeling that Atletico may give a much tougher competition especially since the second leg is at the Vicente Calderon.
