Barcelona will welcome Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp this Sunday as both sides look to get the better of each other in La Liga. The Catalan club earned a scoreless draw away at Getafe recently. In contrast, the Madrid outfit secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over Almeira last weekend. Hence, we can expect the two sides to go all out in search of the three points in Catalonia.

Barcelona Vs Atletico Madrid: Talking Tactics

Xavi will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to dominate the flow of the game and create enough chances to win this La Liga contest.

Diego Simeone will opt for a 5-3-2 formation and might instruct his men to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before catching the opposition off-guard on the counter.

Andreas Christensen and Sergio Busquets will be sidelined for this game due to injuries. Otherwise, Xavi has no new injury worries to cope with this weekend.

Key Men


Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Catalan club in the final third.

Both Gavi and Franck Kessie will have to move the ball well at the centre of the park and engineer some clear-cut chances for their teammates up top.

Atletico Madrid

Antoine Griezmann will be Simeone’s best hope for a goal at the Nou Camp this weekend. The defensive performance of Stefan Savic and Jose Gimenez could go a long way in determining the fate of this clash.
