Diego Simeone: Atletico deserved to win

On the other hand, Atletico head to the BayArena for the first leg in high spirits having not tasted defeat in LaLiga since the turn of the year.

The Champions League round of 16 provided a seemingly endless array of fireworks on Tuesday, with Manchester City beating Monaco in an eight-goal thriller and Atletico Madrid torching Bayer Leverkusen in a 4-2 triumph in Germany.

Sitting 2-0 up at half time and with two away goals in the bag, Atleti looked to have the job done and it was Saul Niguez who got the ball rolling with a stunning strike early on.

Chelsea gets Man United in FA Cup Q-Final
I scored twice and we played well. "(Ibrahimovic) made it look easy but the finish, when you're in the situation, is hard to take. The Manchester United striker has missed the last three games, including Sunday' s 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers .

"Leverkusen fought their way back into the game in the second half, but overall it is a very satisfying evening for us". It also didn't lack individual greatness, with Sane's assist to Sterling and Aguero's volleyed goal making for two eye-opening displays.

"The quick goal after half-time brought them back into it, they grew from there, the atmosphere too, and they have some good players". Star striker Javier Hernandez scored a brace in both matches.

Realistically, Atletico's challenge is to usurp Sevilla to finish third, while fending off the threat from Champions League qualification challengers Real Sociedad and Villarreal.

Mourinho's chance for revenge over Chelsea
Mourinho was delighted with the traveling United support and can be seen gesturing to Ibrahimovic and his players to thank their fans.

"We had a bit of bad luck because we lost on penalties", said Schmidt. "We must be careful". "They are one of the most intense rivals we have played in the Champions League". He played very well in Gijon, and today, we expect similar from him from now on.

"They got on top because they scored an unexpected goal and it's normal". It would have been the same with [Diego] Maradona or [Leo] Messi. He is a player of vast potential though, proven by Madrid's interest, so we hope we can still get a deal over the line.

"He profits from our improving form and we profit from his goals".

Hundreds Expected to Participate in 'Day Without Immigrants'
Some have been summarily deported as Trump says he is making good on a campaign promise to get rid of unauthorized immigrants. Paul, Minn., and Austin, Texas , have announced closings.

"We wanted to win, we did that and the return leg will be hard as tonight was".
