Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid: Key stats, team news & predicted lineups ahead of Camp Nou meeting

Barcelona will be back in action again on Tuesday night when they host Atletico Madrid in a LaLiga clash at the Camp Nou. 

The Catalans lost ground in the race for the LaLiga title after a disappointing 2-2 draw away to Celta Vigo on Saturday, and will be eager to bounce back. 

It will not be an easy ride though as they face a Madrid side that has won their last four matches to move to third and breathe life into their Champions League hopes. 

Team news

Ahead of the fixture, coach Quique Setién has been boosted by the return of Sergio Busquets, who sat out the Celta match following a suspension.

Sergi Roberto is also back in the squad after recovering from injury and could have a role to play, and will also have Arthur in the team despite the Catalan side reaching an agreement with Juventus for his sale. 

Atletico Madrid on the other hand are not lucky as they will miss the services of their captain, Koke, as well as defender Stefan Savic. 

The duo will sit out following an accumulation of yellow cards, even though Diego Simeone has enough ammunition to replace them with the likes of Thomas Partey and Lemar available.
