Atlético de Madrid will host FC Barcelona, this Saturday at 8:45 p.m. CET in the Wanda Metropolitano, in a crucial match that will define the LaLiga table.
Both Atleti and Barça are unbeaten thus far in LaLiga and a win against the current leaders will keep Atleti in a comfortable position in the league.
Diego Pablo Simeone knows the match will be difficult, but is confident the players will make the game challenging for Barça.
"Yes, we haven’t beaten them in LaLiga, but we got a point in, quite possibly, the most important match of them all: when we won the league in Barcelona,” he said in the pre-match press conference. “We’ve also had to face them twice to get to the semifinals of the Champions League. I think we’ve always competed well against them.”
