In the Spanish Premira Liga we will have Atletico Madrid taking on Barcelona in what will be a great game and it will be interesting to see how both the sides go about this game. Going into the match Barcelona are 13 points behind Real MAdrid who won their weekend match with ease on Sunday after noon. While Barcelona have a tough job to keep up to the pace of Madrid in the League, Barcelona cant afford to drop points here, if they do than it will almost be imposiblle for them to get back into the title challenge.
If we look at the past 5 meetings between these two great teams, we can see that Barcelona have an upper hand over Atletico madrid, as they have defeated them 4 times in the past 5 meetings scoring loads of goals and it will be interstingt to see how thye lineup in this match. In the last two meetings Barcelona put 8 goals past Atletico without conceding a goal and that is somthing make Barcelona favourite going into this match.
Barcelona have turned around their season in the last few matches as they won 4 out of their last 5 games and only defeat coming in the hands of Osasuna. You can watch the live action of the match here, as well as the match highights which will be available after the match is over. Atletico are unbeaten in the laast 6 games, and they are playing at home and they will surely pose a great threat but I can see Barcelona getting away with a win in this one.
