FC Barcelona travel to face Atletico Madrid for the biggest fixture of the season so far in La Liga outside of El Clasico.
Diego Simeone has performed miracles at Atleti, developing them into title contenders this season even ahead of their Spanish capital rivals Real Madrid.
He has also brought trophies, claiming the 2012 UEFA Europa League and 2013 Copa Del Rey, and the latter won Atletico Madrid a meeting with Barca in the two-legged Supercopa de Espana.
Atletico Madrid’s performances in each of the two games earned them a great deal of credit, with the first a 0-0 draw at Camp Nou and the second a 1-1 draw that saw Barcelona earn the trophy on away goals.
It was the last time Atletico Madrid locked horns with the Catalan giants, and the first time they were taken seriously as genuine title contenders in La Liga.
In Diego Costa and former Barca man David Villa, their forward line is a formidable one, while the likes of Koke and Arda Turan offer fine support. Thibaut Courtois and Diego Godin provide an excellent shield to repel opposition attacks.
However, halting Barcelona is no easy task, especially with the return of Lionel Messi from injury.
The Argentine superstar will be joined by Neymar, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta, and Tata Martino’s side will no doubt attempt to pass their opponents to death.
Atletico Madrid have proved that is not so simple, with a high energy pressing style, and this promises to be one of the best games of the season.
