Fernando Torres fired visitors ahead in the 25th minute
Torres was sent off 10 minutes later for two careless bookings
Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis was left fuming with referee Felix Brych following his side's 2-1 defeat by Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.
After Fernando Torres had fired the visitors ahead in the 25th minute, Brych then sent off the veteran striker for two careless bookings for fouls on Neymar and Sergio Busquets.
To compound matters, Luis Suarez, who bagged a brace in the second-half, escaped punishment for kicking out at Atletico right-back Juanfran before the break.
I don’t know what a Barcelona player has to do to get sent off’. They are protected and that really hurts,' Luis told BT Sport.
On Torres' dismissal in the 35th minute, Luis said. ‘Awful. I think it could have been a lot worse but a lot better as well.
'If we don’t get the red card which was totally unfair for me, in my point of view it’s the striker’s second yellow, it’s totally unfair. It’s not easy playing against Barcelona in the Champions League. They are a club with a lot of history.’
Barca fully capitalised on their numerical advantage in the second half with Suarez striking twice to turn the tie on it's head.
‘They scored twice. They did what they want,' added Luis.
'They won and now they have the result on their side. We try to defend when we play inside our box. Usually they are going to have chances which they did and they had a lot of chances and fortunately for us they only scored two goals but it could be more.’
Both sides will meet again in the second leg at the Vicente Calderon next Wednesday.
