Having already dropped big points this season, Barcelona will know the importance of achieving a result against Atlético, which could set us up nicely to go and push for the title, and regain our crown.

Atlético Madrid will come into this fixture in confident mood, having started the season in fine fashion, scoring plenty of goals and not allowing many in at the other end. They will also be pleased with how well star player João Félix has been playing this season, although he will be without his partner in crime and former Barcelona gunman, Luis Suárez.

Barcelona also come into the fixture with absences, as Ansu Fati, Sergio Busquets and Ronald Araújo are all unavailable for this one, and will know that they will need a complete and diligent away performance to come out of the Wanda with all 3 points on Saturday evening.

My passion has always been football. Not just playing football, but also watching, analysing and talking about it. Football is my life. It’s what I wake up thinking about and go to bed worrying about. Although I love playing football, it is watching, analysing and sharing my thoughts on the game that inspires me. I began sharing my opinions on my YouTube channel from a very young age, and I am now delighted to be part of this fantastic team at Barça Universal. Barça is a huge part of my life and will always be. Força Barça!

Barcelona have finally returned to winning ways with a complete dismantling of Osasuna the other night. The 4-0 scoreline tells the whole story really but it was Lionel Messi who once again stole the show with his magic.

Needless to say, the papers this morning are all about the little genius and his special homage to the late Diego Armando Maradona. SPORT say it was an emotional tribute from one D10S to another.

The Argentine scored an incredible goal and then revealed an old Newell’s Old Boys shirt underneath his Azulgrana colours which also bore the no.10 on the back. That’s the same number Maradona used to wear back in the day.

Apart from that, Antoine Griezmann also had a great night as he scored by far the best goal of the game and most likely the 2020/21 season as a whole as well. This incredible volley is bound to restore at least some of the Frenchman’s lacking confidence.

Mundo Deportivo are saying the same things with their cover, ‘Amen‘.

The outlet talks about Messi’s homage to Maradona but also mentions the goalscorers, Martin Braithwaite, Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho. However, not all is perfect and there were a couple of things that may put a stain on an otherwise perfect night.

Clément Lenglet had to be replaced following an injury and that leaves Barcelona with no senior centre-backs available anymore should the injury be serious.

Time for Frenkie de Jong in the backline next to some youngsters? It would definitely seem so.
