Venue: Camp Nou, Barcelona
TV Channels: beIN Sports (US, Middle-east)Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Preview: Both teams have struggled in the league so far and we can pretty much rule out Atletico from the title race as they are 10 points behind Madrid who has a game in hand. But since Madrid are out of Copa Del Rey this give oppertunity to either of these sides to go all the way in this competition to win some guaranteed silverware.

[ Copa Del Rey 2017 Semifinal – 1st Leg ] 07′ 0 – 1 Luis Suarez scores the opening goal inside first 7 minutes to put Barcelona in lead and importantly scored that away goal.
33′ 0 – 2 Lionel Messi produced yet another moment of magic scoring a wonderful goal with a left footed shot fining the top corner.
FC Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid Highlights
[ Spanish Primera Liga 2016-17 ] 41′ 1 – 0 Ivan Rakitic scored just before the break to put Barcelona 1-0 in lead.
61′ 1 – 1 Angel Correa scores 15 minutes into the second half as Ateltico found a way back into the game.Luis Enrique will keep his full strength side which means Messi, Neymar and Suarez to start upfront while Iniesta, Rakitic and Busquets to play in midfield. Sergio Roberto, Pique and Mascherano to start in central defense roles while Ter Stegen to play in goal for Barcelona.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand will keep the french duo of Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gamiero upfront with four man midfield of Augusto Fernandez, Koke, Saul Niguez and Nicolas Gaitan. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Wedesday night.
Match Predictions: looking at the recent history between the two sides one can only see Barcelona win who have been extremely dominant over Atletico having won 7 of the last 8 meetings between the two but Atletico did knockout Barcelona from Champions League thanks to 2-0 win at Vincente Calderon in their most recent meeting. This Barcelona side has goals in them but unfortunately on both sides. I feel, Atletico’s defense will come good against Barcelona and they will take advantage of Barcelona’s shaky defense to nick a goal. I am going with a 1-0 win for Atletico in this one.
An eventful first half saw Atletico go in front when Torres finished off a superb counter attacking move with a nice finish from edge of the box. Barcelona dominated possesion and failed to convert chances came there way. Atletico Madrid however made lives difficult for them when Fernando Torrest was sent off just 10 minutes after scoring the goal. His received his marching orders after second yellow card inside 5 minutes. Credit to Atletico as they hanged in there for best part of hour but an scrappy goal from Suarez brought Barcelona back in the game.
Luis Suarez scored twice inside 10 minutes to put Barcelona 2-1 up and take the massive away goal lead which will prove to be crucial for Barcelona. Suarez first was a tap in from close range with a nice flick while second was a thumping header after Alves found him with a inch perfect pass.
