Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will meet in the Spanish league (La Liga) on Saturday after both facing setbacks during the international break. Atletico, which have a chance to open a nine-point lead over their Catalan rival, will be without forward Luis Suarez. (More Football News)

Suarez would have been facing his old club for the first time but he tested positive for the coronavirus while on duty with Uruguay's national team. A second test on Wednesday was also positive, forcing him to remain in isolation. Newly signed Atletico midfielder Lucas Torreira also tested positive while with the Uruguayan national team and won't be available either.

Suarez Hype

There had been a lot of hype surrounding Suarez's meeting with Barcelona, which let the striker go in the offseason after coach Ronald Koeman arrived to revamp the squad. It's not all negative for Atletico, however. Some of the team's players did well with their national teams over the break, Jorge “Koke” Resurreccion, Renan Lodi and Joao Felix among them. Koke helped Spain rout Germany 6-0, while Lodi played in Brazil's 2-0 win over Uruguay and
Félix scored a goal in Portugal's 3-2 victory over Croatia.

“We are going to arrive for this match very motivated,” Felix said. “We all know Barcelona, they like to keep possession and they will make us run more than usual. But if we play our game, we will have a great match. These are the matches that we like to play, against good teams, against great players.”

Messi Mess

Barcelona, meanwhile, will be without Sergio Busquets, who was injured while playing with
Spain's national team. They also had several players out on international duty, including Lionel Messi with Argentina. Messi returned to Spain on Wednesday and vented after being asked about the criticism directed at him by a former agent of teammate Antoine Griezmann.

“To be honest, I'm a bit tired of always being the problem for everything in this club,” Messi said.

He also complained about having to undergo an inspection by Spanish tax officials on the plane upon his arrival.
