That opened a two-goal total lead for Barcelona, yet Atletico recaptured some trust when Barca's Sergi Roberto was sent off following a moment booking in the 57th moment.

Be that as it may, there was a kind off relief for the barcelonian side when Atletico's Yannick Carrasco was sent off with a straight red card on 69 minutes, and Messi almost found the net from a long free kick, just for his shot to skim off the crossbar.

There was another surge of trust when Gerard Arouse fouled Kevin Gameiro in the crate, however the forward could just hit the crossbar from the subsequent punishment in the 80th moment.

In any case, Gameiro found an objective for Atletico three minutes after the fact, tapping home into an open net after a go opposite Antoine Griezmann.

Atletico held the majority of the ownership late on as they looked for a goal that would send the game to additional time, however Suarez had a goal appropriately precluded for offside on a counter-attack.

Be that as it may, Suarez would not make it to the last shriek as he was sent off in the 90th moment when his elbow struck Atletico's Koke.

Barcelona had a last panic when Messi endured a hard foul in the last moment of included time, however he could complete as Barcelona held tight to win.
