La Liga 2016-17: Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Match Preview
Atletico Madrid are flying high at this moment with a dominant performance against Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League 2016-17 while Barcelona are on the mat after a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain in their UCL match. However, both teams would love to forget what happened in the Champions League and focus on the domestic league where they have got a big game in hand.
Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are still very much in the title race after shock defeat of Real Madrid in the previous round and a win in this match could turn out to be really crucial for either team. Barcelona are currently placed second on the league table, one point adrift of the league leaders having played one match more. Atletico Madrid are in the fourth spot on the table and trail Barcelona by 6 points having played an equal number of matches. This is an interesting scenario as a win for the home side would see them getting closer to Barcelona on points. And a win for Barcelona will see them keeping up the pressure on their arch-rivals Real Madrid. But a loss for Atletico could pull down the curtains on their title aspirations for this season. However, a draw would be something that Real Madrid would love to see.
Coming to the previous encounters between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, it can be stated that we have had some of the most exciting display of football. These two have met thrice prior to this match this season and Atletico Madrid have failed to win even a single win, having lost twice and drawn twice. Two of those encounters were in the Copa Del Rey which saw Barcelona reaching the final of the tournament at the expense of Atletico. In the previous La Liga encounter, Barca and ATM played out a draw. So it will be really interesting to see how things pan when these two lock horns at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday.
