Barca arrive at Wanda Metropolitano in the unfamiliar territory of eighth in the table, having won just one of their last five league games. Ronald Koeman’s team have a historical hold over Simeone’s Atletico though. As we all know, history can be a hard thing for a team to shake.
Atletico might have a chance of winning La Liga this season. Diego Simeone’s side have started their campaign extremely well and are currently on a 23-game unbeaten streak in the league, their longest ever in the competition. With both Real Madrid and Barca looking flawed this year, Atletico will feel a repeat of their 2013-14 triumph is very possible.
