The Spanish Gaints recorded their second consecutive 3-0 defeat in the hands of Benfica on Wednesday night, their first which was against Baryern Munich. As it stands, Ronald Koeman's side haven't registered a single point or even scored a goal in their first two group-stage games. Atletico madrid, on the other hand, go into the match on a bit of a high after coming back from a goal down to defeat AC Milan 2-1 away from home on Tuesday night.

In a high-pressure situation against Benfica, the 17-year-old wonder kid was sent onto the pitch to clean up the mess made by the senior players, who were supposed to be the ones to steady the ship. Despite arriving late, he performed admirably. I expect to see him in the starting lineup against Atletico Madrid, hopefully.

Barcelona would be needing a midfielder who can make forward runs and Coutinho would be the perfect person for the job. He has good qualities and knows how to come alive in big games.
