Following the final international break of 2020, Barcelona return to action today with a trip to the Wanda Metropolitano to face Diego Simeone’s Atlético Madrid team.
The former have been nearly unstoppable to start the season, unbeaten after seven games with a plus-15 goal differential and a whopping 17 goals scored.
Barça legend Luis Suárez turns the guns against his former side as the visitors begin a four-month period without Ansu Fati.
Atlético are clear title contenders, and a loss would put Barça nine points behind them after just eight games. Barca are expected to rely on Philippe Coutinho who is back, Lionel Messi, Pedri and Ousmane Dembélé.
