Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Live | LaLiga | Date: Saturday, 24th November 2018 | Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET | Venue: Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid
Two heavyweights from Spain and Europe will face Saturday in Metropolitan Wanda to set the tone for the rest of the season.
Barça arrives after suffering a home defeat after almost two years. They knew that their talisman had returned among them, but even the Leo King, the GOAT, could not help being overwhelmed by the amazing tactics of Quique Setien. The hosts sank at a loss of 3-4. Although Messi scored two goals and an assist to third base, the Blaugrana turned around.
It was a tactical masterclass by Real Betis coach, who had requested to take control of the Camp Nou if Ernesto Valverde was going to leave this summer.
Atlético performed a small miracle at home after being trained for most of the game. Inaki Williams was the thorn in the side of Barca. He scored two goals against one of the best defensive teams in Europe. But Atleti has found a way back to the game. And perhaps it was poetic that Diego Godin, the same captain, scored the winning goal in the 91st minute.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Live: prediction
Barça will desperately want to recover their means to win once they return from the international break. They performed so well in the absence of captain Lionel Messi, and many expected them to improve upon their return. But they had to face a defeat at home for the first time in two years in their first game back.

Wait for them to be ready, shoot the weapons and make your point of view known to the rest of the teams in Europe.
Atleti will surely miss their captain and central defender Diego Godin, excluded from this game due to an injury. They will seek the inspiration of Antoine Griezmann and probably Diego Costa.
Both teams, Barça in particular, conceded goals at regular intervals, unlike the situation of last season. Ter Stegen, despite his usual feats under the bar, was in the best average against Betis. Wait for both sides to be on the match sheet.
Barça will avoid a defeat in this match.
