Watch Atletico Madrid v FC Barcelona in a lively and high scoring match at Vicente Calderon. Holders Barcelona will take on an Atletico side that finished third last season after their glory season winning the championship the year before. Barcelona are without Xavi this year but new signing Arda joins the great striking line up of Neymar, Suarez and Leo Messi, with the power of midfielders Iniesta and Rakitic behind. Sprucing up Barcelona’s attitude and style of attacking football is where Manager Luis Enrique made most advances last year, along with the delightful (for all true fans) rejuvenation of Leo Messi.

Yet again the colchoneros will meet the blaugrana in a potentially explosive liga match. These games between such old rivals are celebrated in the Spanish Liga for the high quality of football on offer and usually a high scoring result. This is only Atletico’s second home match of the seaon, and they will be looking to capitalise on the wobbles Barcelona suffered when Athletic Bilbao made beating Barcelona look easy in the pre-season Super Copa.
This should be an end-to-end match with goals given the attacking style of play of both teams. Diego Simeone has pulled off the miraculous feat of consistently seeing top players culled by the European fat cats (Costa, Villa, Luis Felipe, Arda Turan…) but getting back up on his feet and challenging again, apparently even stronger. It is almost as if the more blows Atletico receive the fitter they are for the fight. Again for this season, with the accolades still ringing in their ears, Atletico Madrid will rebuild their side and get down to work.
