Lionel Messi who was back to training on Thursday morning for the Catalan giant, will be leading Ronald Koeman's side this weekend against Diego Simeon led Atletico Madrid team to battle it out for another vital three points.

Lionel Messi who was impressive and fascinating before the international break for his club, and during the international break for his country will be hoping to maintain and continue his fascinating form by leading Barcelona to their first victory after the international break, and move up on the La Liga table.

The Blaugrana sit at the 8th position on the log with 11 points from 7 matches played so far and will be up against the Los Rojiblancos who sit 3rd of the table with 17 points having played 7 matches as well.

The host will be without Uruguayan forward, Luis Suarez who hopes to play against his former club for the first time since his departure in the last transfer window due to being tested positive for Covid-19.

The Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi who made his debut for the club seventeen years ago (2003) will complete 800 games played with the Barca shirt at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. In these 17 years, he has scored a total of 677 goals.

Lionel Messi will then be looking forward to celebrate this landmark with a victory, and also be optimistic to add more to his tally of goals as he is currently on the verge of breaking Pele's record of most goals scored for a single club.

Barcelona have also been maintaining 20 streak of unbeaten run against the Los Rojiblancos (Atletico Madrid) in their previous league meetings, managing 14 wins and 6 draws - a run which stretches back to before Diego Simeon was at the helm of Los Rojiblancos. As a result, Barcelona will be optimistic to continue to maintain the streak of the remarkable unbeaten run over them by extending the figure.

Wishing Lionel Messi and his Barcelona's teammates best of luck.
