After obtaining a victory with good feelings in front of the Borussia Dortmund home, touches to repeat in front of the Athletic of Madrid, in a trip to Wanda Metropolitan in which, a week more, will put at stake the leadership. In a direct clash by the title, is forbidden to fail.

While the Catalans make his own cábalas, also will be important the ones of the Madrilenian in relation to his alignment. In the capital the need is elevated, because since atascaran on 14 September in Anoeta, the results have not accompanied. They go five triumphs in 16 meetings, with only three defeats but eight ties. With the culés to six points and a party less, the duel has airs of final.

Diego Simeone already medita the best option to demolish to the champion, and the centre of the field and the leading will be keys. To the Argentinian likes him have to the defence very arropada and knows that for this is decisive the effort in the medullary, where will contest a battle that could define who will go out winning. Besides, the tips have to fine-tune his puntería, because with Leo Messi and company in front, any error finish paying.

The Portuguese already is recovered of the sprain of ankle that had him almost a month of drop, and in his last apparitions, in which it has been acting, has left good feelings. Had 15 minutes in front of the Granada and 36 against the Juventus, what does to think that it could be the ace in the sleeve in the crash against the Barcelona.

The technician rojiblanco has to decide if to hurt to the Barça bets by the magic of the luso or by the physicist that so much likes him, and that would embody other alternatives that offers the staff. The enrachado Álvaro Morata seems innegociable, and between the incógnitas of this appointment is to know who will be his companion in the zone of attack. Still it remains something of margin to think, until the Sunday offer all the answers.

The injuries condition the Athletic-Barça

As already sucediera in the Barça-Dortmund, the injuries and sanctions will condition the commitment suspender belt in the Metropolitan. Ernesto Valverde has to Jordi Alba, Nélson Semedo and Ousmane Dembélé in the infirmary and to Sergio Busquets sanctioned, but his rivals neither will have it easy. The physical problems will leave went to Simeone without the help of José Giménez, Stefan Savic, Sime Vrsaljko and Diego Coast.
