The 17-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Atletico Madrid squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.
Injuries to Lucas and Costa gave Atletico further cause for concern, Simeone turning to Fernando Torres for his first appearance since confirming he will leave at the end of the season.
The other tie by Eric Abidal, ambassador of the final and innocent hand draw, will measure Olympique de Marseille with Red Bull Salzburg with the return in Austria. Arsenal could only hold on for five minutes before Costa stuck the knife in, turning in a low cross at the near post for the winning goal - preventing Arsenal from going top of the league in the process. In 31 La Liga contests, Atleti has conceded only 15 goals.

"Perhaps in Arsenal's favour is that Atletico do play a high intensity style that is not dissimilar to Premier League clubs, so Arsenal won't find it too difficult to prepare". Red Bull Salzburg came in second at the 1993-94 UEFA Cup.
"Gameiro, Thomas and Correa already warmed up in the first half", Simeone insisted. They have beaten Real Sociedad, Borussia Dortmund, and Lazio. For administrative reasons a final draw will take place to determine the 'home' team in Lyon. This run of momentum could be enough to beat Marseille. "Whatever happens in the season, winning or losing, they deserve my respect for what they have done".
