Barcelona Boss looking for a "Juicy" win against Atletico Madrid

The Euro Preview: Barcelona not getting the credit they deserve this season

The Euro Preview: Barcelona not getting the credit they deserve this season

On Sunday, Griezmann will attempt to maintain that form and gun down a Barcelona team he is strongly expected to join in the summer, with the Camp Nou making no secret of their intentions to capture the striker in a €100 million transfer. The points are important for what they could mean and [also] to stop the gap being cut even more. But what's worse, they're now eight points behind them with just 11 games to be played. "Obviously there are several matches left, but we have taken a step forward". But we will prepare for it as if it's our last game, as if it's a final.

Atletico have kept the La Liga title race close by winning six straight games and picking up 25 points in their last nine games.

But Diego Simeone's strategy of absorb and counter failed to pay off here and, in the end, the visitors might easily have been beaten by a more emphatic scoreline. "It's a challenge for me", he said. On Wednesday, Atletico defeated Leganes 4-0, with Antoine Griezmann scoring all four goals.

Atleti boss Simeone has never previously beaten Barcelona in 12 attempts, although he did see his side claim a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano in the reverse fixture.

"I can't read the future, but I can say that I would prefer him to reserve his goals for another game", Valverde said when asked if he'd like Griezmann to save his goals for when he's wearing a Barca shirt.

"He is a great player and he is in a great moment of form", Valverde, who has left-back Jordi Alba available following suspension, added.

"The penalty hurt us because of how it was, then they defended well and we tried to score". Running at full pace onto a loose ball on the edge of the box, with Costa single-handedly occupying all ten Sevilla outfield players (or so it seemed), Griezmann took a nimble touch before exploding a sumptuous drive into the top right corner.

Nelson Semedo is set to miss the visit of Atletico after suffering a hamstring injury against Girona.

There appear to be few doubts in the Atletico starting 11 with Thomas Partey earning a place alongside Gabi Fernandez in central midfield, while Barca will field their strongest starting 11 with the only doubt being whether Phillipe Coutinho, Ousman Dembele or Paulinho completes a midfield containing Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.
