David Villa has been unable to rediscover his consistency since he broke his leg in late 2011 but Spain's record scorer could still be crucial to Atletico Madrid's hopes of Champions League success this season.Villa was filling in for the suspended Costa at Celta and represents a potentially lethal backup weapon in coach Diego Simeone's armory as Atletico seek a place in the last eight of Europe's elite club competition for the first time since 1997 at home to AC Milan Tuesday.Villa netted the third goal in Milan's 4-0 last 16, second leg defeat at Barcelona last season, when the Catalan side overturned a 2-0 first-leg deficit, and also found the net in a 2-2 group-stage draw in the 2011-12 season.
