This Sunday, FC Barcelona will face Atlético de Madrid with high morale after a great victory against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League
Wanda Metropolitan always is used to to be terrain complicated for the FC Barcelona. The Athletic of Madrid is a leathery rival that is used to to put a lot of problems to the Barcelona team when it plays like venue, something that concerns beside the fact that the culés are not taking out precisely his best resulted when they play far of the Camp Nou.
But the clash against the team of Diego Pablo Simeone, maybe arrives in the best possible moment for the FC Barcelona. The men of Ernesto Valverde come with the high morals, after doing a big party against a dangerous team like the Borussia Dortmund. The night of Champions League of the Wednesday gives reasons to think in positive of face to the duel in Madrilenian earths.
The main reason for this was the good deployment of the team in general lines and led by a colossal Leo Messi. The Argentinian star went back to show that it plays in another league and that follows being in a big state of form. But, in front of the Dortmund, the captain was not only: the collective game worked wonderfully -evading the last chamber of hour- and the '10' felt more comfortable that never.

To simple sight, the Croat did not play a formidable party, but yes gave packaging to the centre of the field, showed that it understands the system of Valverde to perfection and that has win to recover the place. In Wanda will not be Sergio Busquets by sanction, but the '4' seems prepared to assume the challenge of suplir to the of Badia.
Neither we can forget that the Barça is fine in attack. Luis Suárez follows being in state of grace of face to the goal and Antoine Griezmann achieved to leave backwards his drought scorer, two very positive shots of face to the duel against the Athletic. Besides, the defence formed by Umtiti, Lenglet, Sergi Roberto and Junior Firpo worked quite well, protected by a Ter Stegen that saved to the team in the final stretch, when it arrived a disconnection that yes that concerns.
It touches to follow out of house...
Partidazo Of the FC Barcelona in the Camp Nou, but now touches the torment to play an important party out of house. The culés have an authentic bleeding to domicile, something that has to solve of face to the party against the Athletic. It is necessary to be still in the same dynamics of the Wednesday in spite of having the environment against and, especially, not having disconnections like which sucedieron in Raise, Leganés... Or in the final stretch against the Dortmund.
