Atletico take on Barcelona on Wednesday 21st August, 2013, with kickoff at 22:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

In the UK the Charity Shield is a bit of an odd event, something between a friendly and a free chance to try out the new players that have been added to the squad over the summer and the Spanish have their own, two-legged affair. Atletico have lost their biggest star while Barcelona have added Neymar, but the Brazilian sensation is apparently ill and may not be at his best.

With that in mind we’ll have to make do with Messi, Iniesta, Xavi and the rest, not to mention a pretty special Atletico squad, but that isn’t such a hardship.
