Blaugrana will be without Samuel Umtiti for this game, per Goal.com, as the French sports star (who signed with Barcelona in the summer) suffered an injury while training on Sep. 20. Despite Samuel riding the bench, Barcelona is still mind-blowingly strong. Along with the Trident, Jordi Alba, 27, Sergi Roberto, 24, and Gerard Pique, 29, will provide a defensive wall that’s brighter than Messi’s blonde makeover (and harsher than his tax fraud conviction.)
Los Rojiblancos (aka the Red-and-Whites) won’t come into this battle with Barcelona. They have Antoine Griezmann, 25, who eliminated Barca from the Champions League last season by nailing two goals in the second leg of the quarterfinal, per Sport English. The French forward excels when under pressure, and despite being only 5’8, he’s capable of nailing screaming headers into the opponent’s net.
Going into this game, Barcelona sits in second place of the La Liga table, three points behind Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid isn’t too far back, a mere 1 point behind Barcelona. Barca is riding high after downing Celtic in the Champions League and sinking Leganes in a La Liga match.
Atletico, on the other hand, have won their last three matches. They surpassed Celto Vigo and Sporting Gijon after blanking PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. Which one of these teams will keep the good times rolling?
