Dembele scores in consecutive games for Barca
Earlier, Sports Brief reported the Metropolitano stadium has not been the happiest hunting ground for Barcelona in recent years, but Ousmane Dembele knows how to score there.
Barcelona have only won one of their last five encounters at the home of Atletico Madrid, losing two games and drawing two.
Dembele, though, is the only player in the current Barcelona squad to have scored at the stadium, as he netted during a 1-1 draw in 2018.
