This time, Griezmann can return to face his former club. If coach Ernesto Valverde decides to go down with the best composition, minus injured goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Griezman will work with Messi and Luis Suarez in the attack.

Blaugrana team could be disappointed for a win over Atletico Madrid. The reason, they only drew 2-2 in the derby against Espanyol in La Liga last weekend. They failed to start 2020 well. That can be redeemed when fighting Atletico later.

This time, which of them will triumph and qualify for the finals?

Will Griezmann Beat Atletico?

Now, Griezmann is looking for his first goal for Atleti in an important competition. This Supercopa trophy is important for Barca and for Griezmann personally, who hasn’t won a trophy at club level for a long time.
