The hour of the 'King'


FC Barcelona player, Arturo Vidal, could be presented with his golden opportunity for the 'Cules' this weekend,when they travel to the capital to face Atlético Madrid.

Since his arrival in Catalunya, the Chilean international has been forced to wait on the substitutes bench for his time to arise. And it seems that his patience is finally set to bear fruit.

The number '22' is set to start the key clash between Atlético Madrid and Barcelona, two of the favourites for the La Liga crown, which takes place this Saturday at the Wanda Metropolitano.

In recent months, the 'King' has only been used sparingly in the team, although not without controversy, as his various public fits of anger over a lack of playing time, have been clear to see on the sidelines.

In spite of all this, the Chilean is still another player at the team's disposal thanks to a good work ethic, and now, circumstances may offer him a great reward.
The injury to Ivan Rakitic has opened the door to a starting berth, in the face of a clash that is do doubt crucial for the development of the league standings.

Vidal is keenly aware of how important the match is, and has already demonstrated with his national team that he has the focus to give his absolute best against the 'Colchonero'.

The forward made an agreement with his coach, that he would be substituted after 50 minutes of Chile's match against Honduras, so that he could be totally fresh for the weekend's crunch match.


Furthermore, despite leaving the field early, Vidal had plenty of time to demonstrate his good form, by scoring two of the goals in a resounding 4-1 triumph over Honduras.

These statistics add to the already favourable contributions made by Vidal for Barcelona; he scored against Madrid in 'El Clásico' and against Real Betis, both at the Camp Nou.

Now, the 'King' will want to continue his peak performance levels, and help Ernesto Valverde's side to win, so to secure a more consistent place in future starting XI's.
