by Tom Conn | Posted on Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid face off in one of the most anticipated matches of the week, with Barca hoping the combination of Leo Messi and Neymar can lead them to their first trophy of the season.


Leo Messi has been declared fully fit and Neymar named a starter as they hope to win one of what many Cules hope will be many titles the two will earn.  Pedro and Andres Iniesta, who is still gradually getting back to full form, are starting from the bench.

Barcelona XI: Valdés, Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Alba, Xavi, Busquets, Cesc Fàbregas, Alexis, Messi, Neymar

Atletico Madrid are coming off a 5-0 rout of cross-town rivals, Rayo Vallecano and are hoping to win yet another title under soon-to-be legendary manager, Diego Simeone.  David Villa, who made the move from Barca to Atleti this summer, will be making his first return to the Camp Nou, as a starter.
