Great match at the Cívitas Metropolitano

Simeone's team welcomes FC Barcelona for the 29th round of LaLiga this Sunday 17 March at 9pm CET.

The focus is back on the domestic competition. This Sunday, 17 March, at 9pm CET, the Cívitas Metropolitano will host the 29th LaLiga matchday corresponding to the match against FC Barcelona. The duel will be mediated by referee Sánchez Martínez, who will be assisted by Melero López from the VAR.

Our team sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League last Wednesday after drawing the tie against Inter Milan and beating the Italian side on penalty kicks. Goals from Griezmann and Memphis sparked celebrations in the home of all the Atleti fans, and Oblak's saves in the penalty shootout round sparked euphoria in the stands.

The away side also booked their place in the next round of Europe's top competition with a 3-1 win over Napoli, with goals from Fermín, Joao Cancelo and Lewandowski.

Six points separate the two teams in the battle for third place. Barça have 61 to the Red & Whites' 55, so it will be a direct duel for the goal of the season.
