Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona by Pacifier

Atletico-Madrid
VS
Barcelona
Atletico Madrid unbeaten record will be on the line here as they host current leaders Barcelona in their new stadium. Atletico have won four and drawn three of the opening seven league games and are already six points behind Barcelona in the title race. They won both league games they have played at home beating Sevilla by 2-0 and Malaga by 1-0. Although they lost to Chelsea in the champions league here by 2-1 thanks to a late Batshuayi goal and should be able to beat Qarabag in mid week in the champions league. Diego Simeone is unlikely to make too many changes as Griezmann should start alongside Corea in a 4-4-2 formation. Felipe Luis should be fit and could start in the left back position.

 

Barcelona are absolutely cruising so far seven wins from seven games in the league scoring twenty three and conceding just two goals at the other end. This will be their first real test and a win here will sound a real title warning to Real Madrid who find themselves already seven points off the pace. Messi has been firing from all angles and he has eleven league goals already and he would be buoyed by his mid week exploit with Argentina where he almost single handedly took them to the world cup with a brilliant hat trick against Ecuador. Luis Suarez is having a weak season in front of goal but even he got two with Uruguay and will want to continue with at least a goal here.

 

Both teams have conceded just six goals between themselves but this game could end up being a cracker as Atletico have not looked like their usual solid self and they were exposed against Chelsea in the champions league. I quite fancy Barcelona for this game and the away side should score here but this is the first real test for them and Griezmann and co have the support of the home fans and I fully expect them to be competitive in this tie. Barcelona high line could be exposed here with Koke, Saul, Griez and Correa lurking for a counter. I fully expect both team to get on the score sheet here.
