🎙 Ronald Koeman (Barcelona Coach) pre-match

"It's very difficult to give them chances. They give you the ball, but they are a great team. We have to try to be good in the last pass and create chances. I don't think we'll have more chances against them than against Benfica. We have to score".

"I don't know if another coach could get more out of the squad. There are a lot of young players. There's a lot of talk about the system and it's because there are other players available. There are no wingers. The coach's job is to do it with the players there are. If I had the bag of money, I would have Messi here and I would have other players to dominate and press. If you have a left-footed winger, you set up a game with what you have. If we get attackers back, we can have a strong squad and the young players are asking for ground and deserve to have these opportunities."

"There is a lack of balance. We have few attackers available. If Ansu is on his way back but lasts a little longer it's normal after so long away. We lack one-on-one players and speed. This creates spaces and I said the other day that we lack effectiveness. Atletico created fewer chances than us but they are capable of having a shot on goal that is a goal. The other day in the Champions League at a high level, we have to score at least one or two out of four chances. That's the big difference and it's hard".

🎙 Diego Simeone (Atlético Madrid Coach) pre-match

"Griezmann we always put him on the right, on the left. Where he plays. Footballers have a privileged place, the important thing is that they are ready to play wherever the team needs him. He is a player who with his characteristics will help us wherever we put him."

"[The Suarez-Joao-Griezmann trident] I liked it. They are compatible. There are important variants, there are also Lemar, Correa and Cunha. It generates enthusiasm and the most important thing to manage is that everyone feels important. The quality of minutes makes the difference and hopefully we can take it forward."

"I see Suárez as always. Since he arrived he has had the same hunger and enthusiasm. We try to accompany him in the best way to enhance his qualities".

"Barcelona has a great squad with Alba, Dest, Piqué, Pedri, Ansu, Dembelé, De Jong, they are all great players. It's a team with very good players. They have always had an associative game in the opponent's half. It has led them to great success. I can't imagine any other team.

Key player - Barcelona

12:30 PM3 months ago

Barcelona seeks a way out of the crisis

The team led by Ronald Koeman is not going through a good moment. It took a long time for the azulgranas to be out of the Europa League places after advancing almost a quarter of the season. On top of that, they are coming from a resounding defeat against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League, which further deepened the crisis they are currently going through. Beating Atletico could be the air the team needs to get back on the right track and get back into the fight for the title, so the three points must be obtained at any cost.

12:25 PM3 months ago

Atlético wants to get closer to the leader

The team from Madrid has just had a setback after losing the previous day in their visit to Alavés at the Mendizorroza stadium. The team led by Diego Simeone has had a good start in the league, but they must be aware that wherever they play, they have to overcome the difficulties of each rival they face, in order not to lose points that can be essential in the definition for the title at the end of the season and, therefore, a victory against a direct rival like the azulgrana team is vital in these aspirations.

12:20 PM3 months ago
