The teams are coming out onto the pitch - not long to go now!

Adam says: "Both teams have quality in abundance. As my team Manchester City were dumped out of the cup by Barca in the last round, I hope Athletico do a number on them and win over two legs. As for tonight, I can see it ending stalemate 1-1 with Messi and Villa scoring on his return to Camp Nou." Very true Adam, one of my colleagues always bet on a player like Villa hitting his old team as first goalscorer and used to collect quite regularly. Enjoy the match!

MY VIEW - I think Barcelona will be too strong at home, and I'm hoping for plenty of goals, so 3-1 to the Catalans, which pays a handsome 12/1 with Sky Bet! What are your views / predictions? Send them to steve.pass2@bskyb.com

One of our regulars, Chris Green from Huddersfield, has been in touch with his prediction. Chris says: "Barcelona to win 2-1, with Fabregas and Messi scoring the goals." Cheers Chris,Barcelona will definitely be targeting a home advantage, but can they get the win? Anyone else with an opinion? Send your views / predictions to steve.pass2@bskyb.com

FIRST VIEW - Kevin has been in touch to say: "I think if Atletico can keep a clean sheet - as they are fully capable of - then the tie might be all theirs. An away goal however is a must! If they win this tie then I fancy them very much for La Liga also. ¡Viva Atleti!" Cheers Kevin, your chances of the away goal have been boosted with the inclusion of Diego Costa, enjoy the game!

Teams - There are three changes for Atletico. In come Tiago, Arda Turan and David Villa. Out go Mario Suarez, Jose Sosa and Raul Garcia, who is suspended. There was a worry about Diego Costa but he starts.

Teams - Just one change for Barcelona from the win over Espanyol at the weekend. In comes Iniesta for Pedro.
