Barcelona will look to seal their eighth successive league win of the campaign and maintain their 100 per cent record at La Liga’s summit when they travel to face Atletico Madrid on Saturday.The clash will be the first to take place between these two sides at Atleti’s new venue, the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, and the hosts can climb to within three points of the Blaugrana with a Week 8 win.
Barca were 2-1 winners the last time they travelled to Spain’s capital to face Atletico in February, and new manager Ernesto Valverde will be eager to set a precedent as he goes up against the Madrid giants for the first time as Blaugrana boss. The international break and the end of 2018 World Cup qualification’s group stage took attention off La Liga for a time, but some of the globe’s greatest stars return to Spain’s top flight in time for Saturday’s encounter.
Atletico Madrid will need their squad at full strength if they’re to stop Barca’s rampage through La Liga’s ranks, and thankfully for manager Diego Simeone, the hosts have no new concerns ahead of Saturday’s encounter.Full-back Sime Vrsaljko was forced off due to a hamstring complaint in Croatia’s recent 2-0 win over Ukraine, but he informed reporters after the match his blow was a minor one, per Football Espana.
