Defending champions Barcelona were minutes ago knocked out of the 2016 European Champions League after losing 0-2 to hosts Atletico Madrid in the second leg quarter-final to leave overall scores at 3-2.

The homers took the lead on 36 minutes through Antoine Griezmann who met a brilliant cross by Saul to head home past the sprawling Marc-Andre ter Stegen in goal for Barca.

Griezmann iced the cake on 88 minutes, stabbing home from the penalty spot after Andres Iniesta handled the ball in the vital area.

In the other game of the night, Benfica of Portugal and visiting Bayern Munich Germany parted two-all, with the Germans going through 3-2 on aggregate.

Yesterday, Real Madrid of Spain and Manchester City of England became the first to book their tickets to the semi-finals.
