Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have a football match to play this weekend. Notable players were supposed to be Greizmann and Suarez but unfortunately, due to coronavirus, Suarez is out.
Andu Fati has also undergone surgery after his knee injury and he is expected to return into action for the Blaguranas in late January or February next year. So, he is out.
Barcelona squad list to face Atletico Madrid: Ter Stegen, Dest, Pique; Alena, Griezmann, Pjanic; Braithwaite, Messi, O. Dembele; Riqui Puig, Neto, Coutinho; Lenglet, Pedri, Trincao; Jordi Alba, S. Roberto, F. De Jong; Junior, O. Mingueza, Arnau Texas.
The players just return from the international break and obviously, they are tired but they have to continue playing. Champions League matches will come off in the midweek, too. I'm expecting an exciting game from the two sides, but the better team would win.
Messi is on a decline and most of his goals except one came from penalties. Which means, Simeone's side won't find it so difficult dealing with the Argentine magician in this game should things continue this way.
