Thoughts From Both Camps

“Barca have reinvented themselves after the departure of Neymar. They do not stop wanting to win. They have a winning gene, they do not get tired. We have not beaten Barcelona in the league, but we’ve always played well against them.”

– Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid.

“Atlético are uncomfortable opponents because they make their goals count; they are difficult to score against and are very solid defensively. We know that if they get ahead then they can make life tricky for us and our intention is to give them very few chances.”

– Ernesto Valverde, Barcelona.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona H2H Stats, Barcelona have won three and drawn two of their previous five league encounters with Atletico Madrid. However, Simeone’s side got the better of the Catalan club during their 2015/16 UEFA Champions League meeting.

It should be a closely contested affair but Barcelona are likely to win 2-1.
