Class! Video of Barcelona fans at Vicente Calderon applauding the Atletico Madrid players

Respect!

Fan footage has emerged from the Vicente Calderon last night of the disappointed Barcelona fans clapping Atletico Madrid’s players off the pitch.

It is common these days for the losing team’s fans to leave early or slink out at full time – disappointed by defeat.

Yet, credit to the Barcelona supporters in Madrid last night and it should also be pointed out that this is a reflection of just how well Atletico Madrid played over the two legs.

And, specifically last night as Diego Simeone’s side played like a team – something the Barcelona supporters must miss.
