As the beautiful Estadio Vicente Calderon will be taken down soon, I absolutely had to visit it! I was lucky that someone I know wanted to loan me his seasonticket for the price of a ticket for this game in his sector.

The game was very average but both sides got a few very good chances. FC Barcelona got in front after the break (Rafinha) but Atlético managed to equalise a few minutes later by Godin. With only 2 more minutes to go Messi made it 1-2 for FC Barcelona, which was the final result.

The atmosphere was very good but I expected it to be a bit better/louder. The ground is really phenomenal, the most beautiful ground I saw so far. The Spanish people are also very kind, offering me all kinds of food and drinks.

If you still want to visit it you really should hurry as Atlético only has 7 more La Liga games (and 2 or more Champions League games) at home before they move to their new ground.
