[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Tuesday] Barcelona's bid for a seventh straight appearance in the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League took a hit as it had to settle for a 1-1 tie with La Liga rival Atletico Madrid. Brazilian Neymar rescued Barca with a well-taken equalizer in the 71st minute.

The goal came a quarter of an hour after Diego had put Atletico ahead with a stunning shot from 35 yards. The only bad news for Atleti was the exit of star Diego Costa with a hamstring injury at the half-hour mark of the first half.

Manchester United will head to Munich with a chance against Bayern Munich as it held the defending champion to a 1-1 draw in their first leg on Tuesday at Old Trafford.

United's lead on a goal by Nemanja Vidic in he 58th minute was short-lived as Bastian Schweinsteiger equalized eight minutes later. He'll miss the second led, though, as he was dismissed in the 90th for picking up his second yellow card.

    ¡Most of the credit for that goal goes to Andrés Iniesta!
