Revenge already has a day and time. The match between Atlético and Barcelona, corresponding to the eighth day of LaLiga, will be played on Saturday, October 2 at 9:00 p.m.. It will be Griezmann's reunion with Barcelona and the Frenchman will be the focus of a match between two of the greats of Spanish football. After the match there will be a new stoppage for national teams and Atlético will close the cycle of seven games in September and October.
It won't take long for Griezmann to face his team for the last two seasons. The first confrontation between Madrid and Barça is coming soon and Griezmann will be the main protagonist, at the beginning, of the match. For both teams it will be a first touchstone to know the level in which they are.
Last season Simeone was finally able to defeat the Barça team in LaLiga. Atlético beat Barcelona 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano with both from Carrasco. After trying so hard, the Argentine coach beat Barcelona in the league tournament. Atlético knows that they cannot lose many points in their stadium if they want to revalidate the championship. The rojiblanco team has beaten Elche (1-0) and tied against Villarreal (2-2) in the two matches played in the rojiblanco fiefdom.
Griezmann was already a starter in the first game under Cholo. But he had a rather gray performance against Espanyol. He had no influence on the game and went unnoticed. At Atlético they expect their performance to be higher as the matches go by.
