Riqui Puig has tried his best to fire up Barcelona ahead of tonight’s crucial clash against Atletico Madrid in La Liga.

The midfielder posted a photo of himself on Instagram celebrating with Lionel Messi during Saturday’s draw at Celta Vigo with the following message:

“We are Barca and we will leave our skins out there, let’s go!”

Barcelona head into the game under real pressure. They need a win to keep their title hopes alive but face an Atletico Madrid side in good form.

There are also rumors circulating about disagreements between players and the coaching staff and speculation over manager Quique Setien’s future.

Meanwhile, Puig will be hoping to start the game at the Camp Nou. The youngster has impressed in Barca’s last two games and could keep his place in the team.
