The Wanda Metropolitano is ready for a cracking match between our team and FC Barcelona. Atleti host the Catalan side on LaLiga Matchday 13 on Saturday, Nov. 24 at 8.45 p.m. CET.
Our team earned an epic 3-2 win against Athletic Club in the last LaLiga game before the international break. Simeone's side currently sit third in the league standings with 23 points, tied with second-placed Sevilla and one point behind leaders Barcelona. Our team is especially strong at the Wanda Metropolitano, where we've earned 16 out of 18 points. This makes us the strongest side in LaLiga at home.
Our rivals Barcelona, who are top of the league with 24 points, lost their last match against Real Betis at the Camp Nou. The Catalans, however, won their last away game against Rayo Vallecano. Barcelona have earned 10 points away from home.
This match is to be the 82nd time we face the Catalan giants at home, having won 37 times. Let's get number 38!
