Mighty Barcelona Eliminated Out of Champions League by Atletico Madrid as the Curse of the Champions League Remains Unbroken

Defending champions Barcelona were humbled by two goals to zero(2-0) as Atletico Madrid cruise into the semi-finals of the 2015/2016 UEFA champions league 3-2 on aggregate at their expense. The result ensured that no team have been able to successfully defend the champions league in it's new format & the curse of the champions league with respect to the defending champion still remains unbroken & history unchanged. 

Barcelona had won the first leg by 2-1 & needed just a draw to scale through to the next round but it was not to be as the deadly trio of Messi, Suarez & Neymar(MSN) were effectively neutralized & made to look ordinary during the encounter. Antoine Griezmann who scored both goals for Atletico was at his lethal best. The result means that Barcelona could not re-write history.
