The big game of the weekend in Spain sees champions Atletico Madrid host Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Barcelona’s financial plight has been well documented and they sunk to a new low in the Champions League this week, getting thumped 3-0 to Benfica in Lisbon.
It seems only a matter of time before Ronald Koeman becomes the fall guy for years of mismanagement and he couldn’t have asked for a tougher assignment this weekend, especially as he will be without attacking options Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero and Martin Braithwaite.
Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann both scored in Atletico’s 2-1 win over AC Milan in midweek and should line up in a strike force that will haunt the powers that be at the Catalan giants.
Diego Simeone’s men suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Alaves last weekend but they have lost just three home games in three years in the league, and hovering just below the even money mark look a good bet to rub further salt into Barca’s wounds.
