Atlético de Madrid is a very difficult rival for Barça, but it will not be easy for it to get a victory. Diego Simeone will have to fight his curse at the Camp Nou and in LaLiga, since he has never beaten the catalans
The FC Barcelona does not want to surrender in his battle by LaLiga with the Real Madrid, but has another examination of level in sight. The pupilos of Quique Setién brushed the victory in the visit to the Celtic of Vigo but escaped them in the last minutes, something that reduces even more his margin of error. If they wish to keep connected to the fight by the first place, need to add three points more against the Athletic of Madrid.
The 'colchoneros' are an opponent complicadísimo, and arrive to the duel in his best moment of the course. The season has been marked by the irregularity and some disappointments sounded, but the change arrived after deleting to the Liverpool, valid champion, in the Champions League in March. The good feelings have gone back and also the triumphs, by what will be a capital obstacle on the way of the Barcelona.
The problem for the ones of Diego Simeone is the curse that pursues to the technician, to the that costs him surpass to the culés in two stages. Although in his have state several eliminatory won in Europe or, more recently, in the renewed Supercopa of Spain, fits to highlight that the ex of Racing Club of Avellaneda never has imposed to the Catalans neither in the Camp Nou neither in the championship of the regularity.
The one of this Tuesday will be the decimotercer attempt of the Argentinian in the coliseo barcelonista, where only could celebrate an equalised in the day 38 of LaLiga 2013-14. If they had won the men of Luis Enrique, would have lost the title, but carried it to him resisting home of his more immediate competitor. With this attainment, the balance is something less painful, but does not happen of five ties and seven defeats.
More sangrantes even are his statistics in LaLiga, where has not given with the key to demolish to the Barça of Leo Messi. His compatriot has turned into an authentic torture, since practically always has been decisive so that the Catalan team did not bend the knee. In the total of clashes in the domestic tournament, the 'Cholo' accumulates 11 defeats and hardly five ties in 16 commitments.
The Barça no longer can fail
The inconvenient elder for the Barça is that in this occasion no longer would cost him the tie if it wants to conserve his options in LaLiga. The Real Madrid has two points of advantage and the 'goal average' livestock, by what touches to expect a trip of the 'merengues' and explain each party like a victory. Still they remain six days and the differences are minimum, but it is necessary to do more strength that never to move away of the crisis and reach a last attempt to avoid that the celebrations dye of white.
