The duel between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid takes place at 16h of Brasilia. See here how the teams were in the last rounds.
Barcelona’s recent history has not been as charming as it could be. But even in its worst days, Barcelona are very hard to face.
The team have drawn three of their last four games but have been unbeaten for a long time.
A little discipline has been lacking without the ball to Barcelona. But having a team shaped forward, with a lot of offensive potential, there is confidence that, even in the face of adversity, Barcelona have the strength to impose themselves. In five of their last six games, for example, Barcelona have gone from basic to offensive.
The extra confidence comes from the great recent track record against this afternoon’s rival.
Barcelona will be without injured Ousmane Dembélé.
Atletico set up a team this season that many thought could fight evenly with the powerful in their country.

But the club’s start of season was so disappointing that doubts existed.
But going to work, Atletico found himself, coming to this match being going through great phase, ready to start bothering again the giants of his country.
The tactical consistency imposed on this stretch was decisive for the club’s performance increase, but it is noteworthy that Atletico has been leaked again in the last two matches.
Atletico Madrid will not be able to count on injured Diego Costa.
