BAR Vs ATL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Barcelona set to roll over and allow Atletico Madrid to take them out of their misery once and for all.
Drawing 2-2 with Celta Vigo the last time, Barcelona finally ended up falling behind Real Madrid on points as well. The draw was a howler of a result, a display which saw them make a mockery of what should have been a straightforward win with the side’s quagmire there for all to see at the moment.
It was a performance which alluded towards the issues in the backdrop, ones which have resulted to the side’s wavering downward spiral across the last couple of seasons. Messi was seen pictures ignoring Seitan in practice, a move so disrespectful and tasteless in nature owing to the player’s complete disregard for authority.
The set of events perfectly exemplified the kind of control Messi has over this side, a club where even a leaf doesn’t turn without his say. His dominance has left the side in disarray, one which leaves Barcelona conceding a crucial lead to Real Madrid, one which is looking extremely unlikely to turnover now.
Its in this time of peril and complete disruptiveness that Atletico Madrid will cherish their encounter against Barcelona today. Where Barcelona have waned and regressed Atletico Madrid on the other hand mustered up their fourth win in a row, a result which saw them further hammer their position in third place.
We envision this being a tentative and closely fourth encounter, one which eventually halts in a draw.
