Mobile gaming fans around the world will get new exposure to LaLiga clubs thanks to the global launch of “Score! Hero 2”, the sequel to the original and renowned hit “Score! Hero” which now features licensed teams from LaLiga Santander.
The original Score! Hero has been a feature of the mobile games market for more than five years, achieving over 300 million downloads around the world and with millions still playing the game every day.
Score! Hero 2 builds on this legacy with a host of enhancements, the pinnacle of which is the introduction of real teams licensed from the best leagues across Europe.
Through a new three-year licensing agreement with the game’s developers First Touch Games (FTG), all 20 clubs from LaLiga Santander will be included in the new game. The inclusion of official kits and team names will be a cornerstone of the user experience and will provide new opportunities for global fans to discover the clubs of LaLiga.
Oscar Mayo, LaLiga’s director of business, marketing and international development said: “Tens of millions of fans around the world have already discovered LaLiga through our digital ecosystem, including our official apps, games, OTT platform and content. Partnering with FTG is an exciting way to broaden this visibility through one of the world’s most popular football games, which will be made even more immersive and engaging as a result of having fully licensed teams.”
Charles Chapman, CEO of FTG, added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with LaLiga for the launch of Score! Hero 2. LaLiga embodies everything that is special about football, showcasing the highest skill, quality and enjoyment that anyone will see anywhere in the world. It is these qualities that we aim to bring to Score! Hero, underpinning its success for many years to come.”
A look at the intriguing storylines surrounding this Saturday’s blockbuster clash at the Camp Nou.
This weekend’s LaLiga Santander action is an absolute can’t miss, with the top four teams in the standings face off against each other. On Saturday at 4.15pm CEST it’s Barcelona vs Atlético Madrid, before fans across the world can enjoy Real Madrid vs Sevilla on Sunday night at 9pm CEST.
The meeting between Barça and Atleti at the Camp Nou is massive, as just two points separate Diego Simeone’s league leaders from Ronald Koeman’s Blaugrana-wearing challengers. Los Rojiblancos edged out Barcelona for a 1-0 win at the Wanda Metropolitano when these sides met earlier in the season, but a lot has changed since then.
Barcelona’s form has improved over the second half of the season, whereas Atlético de Madrid’s results haven’t been as impressive. Both teams did earn victories from away trips to the Valencian Community last weekend, though, with Atleti overcoming Elche 1-0 and Barça defeating Valencia 3-2. The Catalan side did so with a three-at-the-back formation, the same kind of system that has brought Atlético so much success this year. When these sides met in November, though, Barcelona were still using a back four.
There is good news for both of these teams in terms of injuries and suspensions, as there are no players banned for this match and both sides have squads that are almost completely healthy. Barcelona will still be missing the long-term-injured Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati, but there aren’t many concerns other than that. For fans, this is great news as it means the very best talents will be able to take to the Camp Nou pitch.
Five Barcelona vs Atlético storylines to look out for
Messi vs Suárez
Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez weren’t just one of football’s greatest ever attacking partnerships during their six years together at Barcelona. They were also very close friends off the pitch. Coronavirus ruled Suárez out of this season’s first meeting between these two sides, but he’ll be able to take on his former club and his friend this time around and, given the competitor he is, he’ll be keen to prove a point. Messi and Suárez have never actually faced each other as opponents in club football, only squaring off at international level. So, this will be a fascinating battle between these two clubs’ top scorers.
Memories of 2014
The last time Atlético Madrid won the LaLiga Santander title was in the 2013/14 season, when a headed goal from Diego Godín earned them a 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou on the final day. That was enough to win the title, but a loss would have made it Barcelona’s championship. There will still be three rounds remaining after this Saturday’s fixture, but this game will surely bring up memories of that 2014 meeting, given how much is at stake. Even though Simeone won the title at the Camp Nou that day, he has never actually won an individual match there in his managerial career and will look to change that this weekend.
Atlético’s Catalan curse
It’s not just at the Camp Nou that Simeone has struggled to win. The Atleti coach has suffered several difficult visits to Catalonia in general in recent years. Los Rojiblancos haven’t won on any of their past seven visits to the region, drawing twice at Girona in that time, losing once and drawing once at Barcelona, losing once and drawing once at Espanyol and losing earlier this season to third tier side UE Cornellà in the Copa del Rey.
Griezmann faces his former club in great form
This is a particularly big fixture for Antoine Griezmann, as he takes on the club he was once the attacking leader of. Since switching Atleti for Barcelona in 2019, the Frenchman has faced Los Colchoneros four times but picked up only one win, alongside two defeats and a draw. He comes into this fixture in excellent form, though, with eight goals scored across his past nine matches, so look to the Frenchman to break the deadlock.
The head-to-head factor
Given that Real Madrid and Sevilla are right there in the title race too, only a win will do for these two sides. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that Atleti will be far happier with a draw than Barça. Not only are Simeone’s side ahead in the standings, but it will decide the all-important head-to-head record in their favour. LaLiga rules dictate that teams who finish level on points are separated by their head-to-head meetings rather than overall goal difference, so a draw would leave Atleti with the potential tiebreaker because they won the first match 1-0 back in November.
The Uruguayan and the Argentine are set to come face to face this weekendfor the first time since Suarez left the Camp Nou for Atleti last summer. They combined for an incredible 478 goals in the six years that they played alongside each other for Barcelona.
There is no footballer in the world who has assisted Lionel Messi more often than Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan provided 47 assists for the Argentine in the six years that they spent together at FC Barcelona, where they displayed such great chemistry from practically the first time they stepped onto the pitch as teammates. Messi, meanwhile, set up 39 Suárez goals over those years and the pair combined for a total of 478 goals during their time together at the Camp Nou. They lifted 13 trophies together, including four LaLiga Santander titles and one Champions League.
Given all of that glorious past, it’ll be impossible not to think back to those successes when they go up against each other, this time as opponents, in FC Barcelona vs Atletico de Madrid this weekend. What’s more, the two sides are neck and neck at the top of LaLiga Santander with just four games to go this season, so the encounter at the Camp Nou will undoubtedly be one of the games of the season and huge ramifications in the title race.
Players of historic quality
These two players both feature on the podium of the top goalscorers in the history of FC Barcelona. Messi leads the way with over 700 goals, 280 of which he scored during the Suárez era, while Suárez is third on 198. Only fellow legend László Kubala splits them, which shows just how tremendously productive the South American duo have been at the Camp Nou, producing numbers that hadn’t been seen in almost 70 years and outperforming other illustrious names like César Rodríguez.
Messi and Suárez, a relationship beyond football
The pair’s relationship goes beyond the field of play. The two strikers were neighbours in the Barcelona neighbourhood of Castelldefels and their children went to the same school. It was normal to see their families enjoying leisure time together, even enjoying seafront walks when Barça weren’t playing. It was Suárez who led Messi to drink mate so frequently, with the No.10 now rarely separated from his flask. Now, Antoine Griezmann is the one sharing mate with Messi, after he made the move from Atlético Madrid to FC Barcelona in 2019, one year before Suárez went the opposite way.
It was on September 24th 2020 that Suárez’s illustrious FC Barcelona career came to an end, with the Catalan club accepting an offer for a transfer to Atlético de Madrid. There, in the Spanish capital, the No.9 is continuing to show that scoring goals is in his blood. He’ll take on FC Barcelona this weekend just a few goals behind Messi in the LaLiga Santander goal scoring charts; he hasn’t skipped a beat since his summertime move and continues to be one of world football’s most lethal strikers. What’s clear is that these players possess so much talent that they can still perform as superstars as they get older.
Messi’s search for a new partner at FC Barcelona
Messi has remained as prolific as always this season but hasn’t found an attacking ally quite like Suárez since the Uruguayan left and he may never develop a partnership like theirs. Looking to the past, not even Dani Alves (with 42 assists) or Andrés Iniesta (37) set up the Argentine more than Suárez did (47).
Even as Messi plays alongside other forwards this weekend, he’ll be able to have a pitchside chat with the best strike partner he ever had and a player with whom he developed an unbreakable friendship. The pair will have to put those ties on ice, at least for 90 minutes, as they go up against each other as opponents for the first time since reality forced their separation.
