Barcelona vs Atlético de Madrid LIVE: both face each other for matchday 16 of La Liga Santander. The match will be played at the Cívitas Metropolitano, starting at 3:00 p.m. (Peruvian time). The Barça team is ready to seize the top of the Spanish tournament.
The match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will be broadcast on ESPN and Star+.
This is how Atlético de Madrid arrives
Sixteen defeats have suffered the Atlético de Madrid of Diego Simeone in his 32 duels against Barcelona, alerted and pressured in his visit this Sunday to the Metropolitano, where he fell in his last two visits, awaits Antoine Griezmann – the differential footballer rojiblanco – and tests the leadership without his scorer, Robert Lewandowski, or Jordi Alba.
Insubstantial in Barcelona, which dispensed with him two summers ago, with 34 goals in 102 games, ‘The Little Prince’, the protagonist of 147 goals in 316 games as an athlete, is the most indisputable man of the current Madrid team, transformed into a total player, for his football, for his sacrifice, for his vision, for his reading and for his determination, with which threatens this Sunday the order of the League classification.
He is also Atletico’s hope. For the qualities of the ‘8’ passes everything you can think in positive terms this course, such as the obligation he has to defend without carelessly his place in the top four or the mission today apparently impossible to re-engage in the competition for the title, eleven points from the top of Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid Barcelona: match times in the world
This is how Barcelona arrives
It is the last chance to believe in it. It is also a crossroads for Barcelona, between the doubt of its draw on the last day against Espanyol and between the concern of the 3-4 victory against Intercity in the Copa del Rey, but also between the security described by its numbers: leader the last four appointments, with 12 wins in the last 14 days, With only 6 goals against in 15 games, with 34 goals for…
And without Jordi Alba or Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker saw this week how the Administrative Court of Sport (TAD) confirmed the three matches of sanction that the Competition Committee put him after the disregard interpreted by referee Jesús Gil Manzano after sending him off against Osasuna. Thus, Xavi will have to devise against Atletico a forward without the ‘pichichi’ of La Liga, who will not be able to play against Getafe and Girona.
The candidates to replace Lewandowski at the top of the attack are Ferran Torres, Memphis Depay, and Ansu Fati. And who has more numbers to be a starter is the latter, the author of the classification last Wednesday in Alicante. On the other hand, Ferran and Memphis left a gray image in their opportunity to vindicate themselves before the First RFEF team.
So far, the only time Lewandowski did not start in La Liga with Barca was on September 10, when Xavi gave him a break in the 4-0 win against Cádiz. That afternoon the center forward was Memphis Depay.
In the 15 league games he has played, Lewandowski has scored 13 goals, a figure that is well above those of his teammates in the Barça attack. Barcelona’s second top scorer in domestic competition is Ousmane Dembélé with four goals. He is followed by Ansu Fati and Pedro González ‘Pedri’, with three each.
Precisely, the Canarian midfielder returns to a call after Xavi gave him a rest in the Copa del Rey tie. In addition, again the Barça coach will not have anyone in the infirmary and the Uruguayan central Ronald Araujo already showed against Intercity that his physical condition is optimal to be a starter.
Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona: probable line-ups.
Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Molina, Giménez, Savic, Reinildo; Llorente, Koke or Kondogbia, Barrios or Kondogbia, Carrasco; Griezmann and Joao Felix.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Sergi Roberto, Araujo, Koundé, Balde; Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Gavi; Dembélé, Ansu Fati and Raphinha.
