The Cholo is welcomed to the scoring capacity of Morata, João Félix and Correa’s good moment. In total, only five of the 25 players called by the Argentine coach know what it is to mark Barcelona, to which we must add the injured Diego Costa. Vitolo and Koke, with two goals each, they are the ones that have scored the most goals for the Blaugrana team, although the canary, who won both with Sevilla, he has needed 14 games to make them and the vallecano 25. Atlético cannot find the goal against Barcelona. The Blaugrana team, always noted for its offensive power, has formed a wall before the rojiblancos that only Diego Costa has managed to knock down in the last four games, somewhat in 360 minutes that did not serve to win after Dembélé tied for the Catalans in the last moments. In the last League match Simeone started the game much better than Barcelona, pressing up and arriving with danger, but at the moment of truth Ter Stegen always won, before Hermoso, Morata and with the collaboration of the club in a rejection of Junior. Finally a goal of Messi decided the match for Barcelona, which was done with the three points in the Metropolitan Wanda with the same script that had followed several times in the Vicente Calderón. In Jeddah, Atlético will have a point in favor: there will be Ter Stegen, the great Blaugrana hero in the last league match. The mattress team comes stronger from face to door than that December 1 and in his last four games he has scored eight goals, two in each encounter (Lokomotiv, Osasuna, Betis and Levante), always taking the victory. A confrontation that has traditionally been scored by the goals, but that in the last appointments they have not lavished in that facet. It is more, in the 16 league matches that Atlético have played against Barcelona with Simeone in command never They have gotten score more than one goal, something that if it happened in the 2016 Champions League victory in the quarterfinals with a double by Griezmann (2-0), the other mattress win was also in the European competition in 2014 and in the Copa del Rey, falling defeated by 2-3 . The other three athletes who have marked Barça have been Morata, who saw the door in the Champions League final between the Blaugranas and Juventus, Saul, author of somewhat in 14 face to face and belt, who made at Camp Nou his only goal in the 10 games he has played against Barça. The rest, they have not been able to pierce the Barca goal. Gimenez He hasn’t scored in the seven games he has played against them, Savic in six, Thomas in five, Beautiful, Vrsaljko and Llorente in four, Arias and Lemar (not summoned) in two and Felipe, Herrera, João Félix and Lodi (only five minutes) at its premiere on December 1.
