Ousmane Dembele reveals Antoine Griezmann told the entire team in the Locker room few months ago when Barca were 11 months Below the Madrid gaints, that Athletico Madrid will surly drop a few points along the way.
Dembélé: "I remember in the dressing room when we were 11 points behind Atlético, Griezmann said to us: 'You will see Atlético will drop a few points'."
Rightly so, Athletico Madrid appear to have bottled a huge 13 points gap over Barca. The catalan giants would have leapfrogged Diego Simeone's men temporarily if they had won the Clasico last night.
Athletico De Madrid (2nd) are only a single point above Barca (3rd), with a game in hand. They will visit the Camp nou towards the end of the season, a ground were they have failed to beat Barcelona in more than 10 years.
Athletico's last Laliga triumph was at the Camp nou, on the final day of the 2013/2014 season. Will history repeat itself this season? We will just have to wait and see what happens.
