Barcelona stand at the top of the table with 48 points and they are sharing the first place with Atletico Madrid, but Barca have one match less. They are playing amazing this season, especially at Nou Camp, where they are still unbeaten (10-1-0). After goalless draw against Espanyol in the city derby, FC Barcelona have managed to win three matches in a row and if they take three points in this game they will make a big step forward and be closer to win the title. Three days ago, home side eliminated Athletic Bilbao in Copa del Rey, beating them 3-1, and showed that they are in the amazing form. Barcelona scored 38 goals in 11 matches upfront their supporters and they will do their best in order to score an early goal. Good news for home side is that Gerard Pique back in the squad after he missed the match against Malaga due to suspension.

Atletico Madrid play very good this season and along Barcelona and Real Madrid, they are one of the main candidates for the title this season. Atleti failed to win in their last three matches, including Spanish Cup, so maybe the match against Barcelona doesn’t come in the right moment for them, but they are playing great on away ground. Visitors have amazing defence, the best in La Liga, and they conceded only 8 goals in 21 matches so far. Interesting fact is that team from Madrid is the best away team this season. As visitors they conceded only 3 goals in 11 away matches. Griezmann is in amazing form and without any doubt he will be the most dangerous player for Barca defenders.

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid injuries and suspensions

Home side have almost full squad available, except Rafinha. Alba is doubtful for this game, so If he won’t be able to play, Jeremy Mathieu will replace him. There are some fitness concerns over Neymar, but Brazilan should be in the first eleven. Visitors will be without injured Tiago, Angel Correa is suspended, while Fernando Torres is doubtful.

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Without any doubt, FC Barcelona are the big favorites to win this game, but I can’t underestimate Atletico Madrid. However, I expect very tough game between Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid and minimal victory for home side. 1-0 or 2-0 is my call.
