Antic: Barcelona must go with Umtiti against Atletico Madrid

Ex-Barcelona and Atletico Madrid manager Radomir Antic says Luis Enrique needs to go with Samuel Umtiti for Wednesday's game.

Antic would go with Umtiti ahead of Javier Mascherano.

He told Esports Cope: "It's clear that Mascherano's suffering from the FIFA virus. You can tell he's tired and not as fresh.

"But you have to keep in mind that he's a player who also brings leadership and is important for the team.

"On Wednesday, though, I think Umtiti would give the team more balance. Atletico have a lot of speed and quick transitions and Umtiti's better set to defend against that."
