Luis Enrique’s side will be looking for revenge after Atletico sent Barcelona out of the Champions League last April, with Simeone’s side going through 3-2 on aggregate with Fernando Torres scoring the significant away goal.
With that in mind we could be set for a pulsating tie & electric atmosphere in Spain tonight as these two well fancied title contenders come face to face from the Camp Nou in Barcelona.
As you would expect, both sides have made impressive starts to their La Liga campaigns, with Barcelona in particular smashing five past Leganes last time out, Neymar, Rafinha, Luiz Suarez and a Lionel Messi brace securing all three points. Visit the Official Barcelona website for line ups for tonight.
The season has not been plain sailing however as plucky Alaves put a dent in their perfect record by securing a shock 2-1 away win at the Champions a fortnight ago.
Enrique has few injury worries, with Javier Mascherano coming in to partner Gerard Pique in the centre of the Barca defence, although Samuel Umtiti out with knee ligament damage.
The ‘MSN’ attacking force of Neymar, Luiz Suarez and a Lionel Messi are all expected to start the match.
Atletico Madrid have made a strong start to their campaign, remaining unbeaten so far and have been amongst the goals recently, thumping Sporting Gijon 5-0 and putting 4 past Celta Viga previously so we could see some fireworks tonight.
Diego Simeone is set to start with Kevin Gameiro, with Fernando Torres dropping to the bench, as is Juanfran, who will come back into the side having been rested last time out, while Yannick Carrasco should come on later in the game as an attacking threat.
Of course, much will depend on in form Antoine Griezmann, who has already scored three times against Barcelona, and the Frenchman has been in superb form recently, bagging four goals in the two recent victories over Celta Vigo and Sporting Gijon.
Los Rojiblancos will have no concerns travelling to the Nou Camp, with Barcelona tending to concede in recent games and this could be a high scoring game.
Predictably, Barcelona are the favourites at around 4/6, while Atletico are available to back at around 9/2, which could offer plenty of appeal.
Lionel Messi & Luis Suarez can be backed at 3/1 apiece to open the scoring, while Antoine Griezmann offers considerably more value at juicy 7/1.
Those expecting goals can get a decent price of 2/1 on the ‘Over 3.5’, which is sure to tempt punters with so much attacking quality on display.
Whatever you decide, the atmosphere should be electric. Take it all in with Bet365.
