June 30 in La Liga will take place match, which will surely affect the further course of the medal showdown – at the camp Nou to meet Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
Matches between Catalans and “plans” are always in a bitter struggle, usually with a minimum number of goals. The exception to the rule – the January match in the Spanish super Cup, which had scored just five goals. The Simeon’s team won the “blaugranas” 3:2, and that game was the last for then-coach of Barca Valverde. But the match of the first round of the championship, held in Madrid, was held the traditional scenario: many struggle, few moments and the minimal victory of the Catalans – 1:0.
However, Atletico Madrid can be considered a convenient opponent for Barcelona. Despite the fact that the team of Simeone hard to play everyone, including the two giants of Spanish football, “more than a club” has a significant advantage over real Madrid in the last twenty frontal fights: the team Messi has 12 wins, five matches ended in a draw and only three wins on account of “athletes”.
However, in this case to give advantage to the team of Selena not quite appropriate. The Catalans confidently renewed the season but in recent games significantly stalled with two draws and only one victory. These mistakes led to the fact that Barcelona lost the lead to real Madrid. Besides, according to Spanish media, the relationship between the team and its leaders are very far from perfect. Messi, Pique, Suarez, Busquets, Ter Stegen – who not only criticized Selena. But he pretends that all is well. Or, at least, normal. But how is it OK and will play against the always uncompromising and prickly Atletico Madrid.
As for wards Simeon, they finally have found their game. In four games the team scored four wins with a total goal difference of 8:1, which allowed real Madrid to gain a foothold on third place in the standings. Above they are unlikely to climb until reaching the second Barca eleven points, but I guess “bronze” place “plans” are going to hold.
In the upcoming match the hosts will not help injured recently, de Jong and Dembele, who has long been in the infirmary. The loss of a significant Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Savich and Koke.
Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Langlais, Alba, the Semed, Pique, Vidal, Rakitic, Busquets, Messi, Griezmann, Suarez.
Atlético: Cloud, Lodi, Felipe Jimenez, Arias, Lemar, Llorente, Herrera, Felix Saul, Diego Costa.
