La Liga is paralyzed. The most attractive match of matchday 16 will take place at the Estadio Cívitas Metropolitano. Atlético Madrid receives Barcelona, from 3:00 p.m. from Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador, and 5:00 p.m. from Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. This exciting match can be watched LIVE on ESPN and Star Plus.
Both teams have an obligation to get win. Barcelona is the leader but can take advantage of Real Madrid’s defeat against Villarreal to make its difference by three points.
Atletico Madrid are fourth and they know that at home they cannot give up points. They are not going through a good season and fans question Diego Simeone, the club’s strategist.
How does Barcelona arrive?
Barcelona arrives at its rendezvous against Atletico Madrid without the presence of its star, Robert Lewandowski. The striker must serve three games of suspension after the red card he saw against Osasuna.
Xavi showed his respect for Diego Simeone’s work but made it clear that he is not afraid to visit Atletico Madrid. The coach indicated that winning means a blow of authority.
“We have a very important game, in a very complicated field, one of the most complicated outings we will have in La Liga. We are going to compete and try to be protagonists in the game. We have to be more effective and be ourselves, show our personality. The game has been good, but we have to be more effective, “said the coach.
How does Atlético Madrid arrive?
Diego Simeone indicated that every game Atletico Madrid faced was a final. The strategist pointed out that Barcelona will not be the exception.
Every day in these eleven years we face them as if it were, so it will also be against Almeria. There is no more important match than the one that touches you. Against Barcelona we played with the team with the most World Cup players and a coach who transmits what he wants,” he said.
