Atletico Madrid appeared in a very good form this season and that was clear beating Sevilla in transfer 1-3. There is no injuries in the team to worry about, and Diego Simeone looks set to field the same side that started at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Players:  Léo Baptistão, Martin Demichelis, Adrián, Cristian Rodriguez and Oliver Torres should not be in the starting lineup list.
Barcelona made a big 7-0 victory over Levante in its opening league fixture, although the star players Messi and Neymar are struggling for fitness. Messi socred twice in his pre-season, which means that no serious injury is affecting his performance.
Gerardo Martino, the new Barça's coach, is expected to recall player Andres Iniesta to the team, while Neymar is also pushing for a start. Player, Cesc Fabregas,  returned from an ankle injury and Carles Puyol (knee) is out through injury. The other attacker, Cristian Tello (hamstring) remains a doubt. Player, Jordi Alba, was left on the substitute’s bench against Levante, and he might be called back in for this game.
Star player, Lionel Messi, has scored 13 goals in his last eight appearances against the Madrid club, with two hat-tricks in the last five ones. Barcelona won the last six meeting against Madrid Club and won the last three games by a 2-1 scoreline at the Vincente Calderon stadium . 

Possible line-ups:
Atletico Madrid (4-4-2): Courtois – Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis – Koke, Mario, Gabi, Arda – Diego Costa, Villa.
Barcelona (4-3-3): Victor Valdes – Dani Alves, Pique, Mascherano, Adriano – Busquets, Fabregas, Xavi – Sanchez, Messi, Pedro.
