How to watch Atlético Madrid vs Barcelona
In their Copa del Rey midweek 2-0 win over Oviedo, Simeone fielded a strong side with an aggressive game plan. Leaning on Joao Felix and Alvaro Morata, there will not likely be much change in the starting XI for Atléti. They will rely on their goalscoring ability to level the field against a Barcelona that has been tight in La Liga, but vulnerable in Copa del Rey play. Sergio Reguilon may be brought in on the left side but their midfield mindset will be always on the front foot.
With Jordi Alba and Robert Lewandowski both suspended for this match, Barça are already reeling before the kickoff. They are deep enough to weather it, but the mindset is likely to be defensive from the outset, playing into Atléti’s hands. Xavi’s starting XI are likely to be similar to their midweek win over Intercity, and even wounded Barcelona can still pack a powerful bite for any opponent.
