I like the way Neymar plays.

"This is the path to follow", Atletico defender Diego Godin told his club's website.

"Neymar has fun playing football".

"It is a hard injury that hurts and leaves you sad", said Suarez. "We know we have to work hard and change things, above all how we start the game". But a lot of goals scored in the match, I think it will not.

Luis Enrique says Leganes put up a good fight, but his core players were able to find the creativity necessary to score.

"He has been playing like this since he got here, " Luis Enrique said. "They can keep criticising him, the kid responds where he must respond". "He is allowed by the rules to do what he does".

Meanwhile, Atletico head to Catalonia after they mercilessly dispatched Sporting Gijon 5-0 at the Vicente Calderon on September 17.

The Black Star is yet to feature for the Spanish giants this campaign and was tellingly overlooked for their 19-man travelling party for their Champions League opener against PSV Eindhoven.

"There's never an easy match against Atletico". Our prediction is that tonight's game will end with Barcelona on the winning side with a scoreline of 3-0 with all three of the MSN trio scoring a goal apiece.

"It's a direct rival".

Fernando Torres believes Atletico Madrid travel to Barcelona on Wednesday at just the right time after emphatically bouncing back with three wins over the past week.

The German global will most probably have more to do against Atletico in midweek and the Barcelona custodian will have to work hard to keep a clean sheet this time around. However, Barcelona shocking defeat at the Camp Nou last weekend will not hurt them.

However, just as in their Champions League opener against Sporting Lisbon a week ago, Real were flat before the break as Villarreal enjoyed the better chances.

It's worth noting that Diego Simeone's side have not conceded a single goal in the last four matches in all competitions.

"With Leo Messi out, football loses, we all lose", Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.

Real remain top of La Liga on 13 points but failed to seal a new record of consecutive wins, having equalled the 16 straight victories set by Pep Guardiola's Barcelona in 2010/11 on Sunday.

Luis Enrique's side, unbeaten in 12 league games against Atletico, had controlled much of the proceedings in the first half but found it hard to muster clear-cut chances, before Rakitic headed in Andres Iniesta's cross from a short corner.
