Battling Barcelona takes on the champs



For the first time in years, Barcelona finds itself in trouble both domestical­ly and in the Champions League. The Spanish giants are last in their group in UCL, though things are better at home, where they sit in sixth place with three wins and three draws. They’ve struggled for consistenc­y since Lionel Messi left, and pressure is already mounting on their coach. They now face Atletico Madrid, which won the title last year and again has one of the best defences. Luis Suarez has played for both clubs and could be the key for Atletico.
