Team news, current form, and lineups for Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid
This is one of the biggest derbies in Spain and we expect a spectacular game. So, let's check both teams out in more detail:
With three wins and three draws in the last six games, Blaugrana seems to be heading in the right direction after they've struggled for the most of the season. That being said, the team is still only in the fifth place in the standings, although they are now just one point behind Atletico Madrid, their next opponent. So, Barca can overtake them in fourth place with a win.
It's tough to know exactly which team will Barcelona field against Atletico since they are still dealing with many issues. We could see the new arrivals Traore and Aubameyang in this game, especially with Fati and Depay injured. Barca will also be without Garcia, Lenglet, Umtiti, Sergi Roberto, and Wague.
Barcelona predicted lineup:
Ter Stegen – Dest, Araujo, Pique, Alba – Pedri, Busquets, F. de Jong – Torres, Aubameyang, Traore
After winning the title last season, Atletico Madrid fans probably expected another similar season. However, the team has struggled so far and they are already 14 points behind their city rival Real in the title race. Atletico is currently in the fourth place in La Liga, but the team was also eliminated from Copa del Rey and they barely made it to Top 16 of Champions League.
The reigning champions don't have a lot of injury problems at the moment, although they will be without Griezmann and Llorente in the upcoming match against Barca.
Atletico Madrid predicted lineup:
Oblak – Hermoso, Savic, Gimenez, Wass – Lemar, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco – Correa, Felix
