Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid LIVE
LaLiga 2018-19

Venue: Camp Nou

Kick-off: 7:45pm GMT, today

Barcelona can take a giant step towards sealing their latest LaLiga title tonight as they face closest challengers Atletico Madrid at Camp Nou.

Ernesto Valverde’s Barca head into the mammoth clash eight points ahead of Diego Simeone’s side after fighting back to earn an incredible 4-4 at Villarreal in midweek.

Atletico managed to whittle down the deficit courtesy of a 2-0 win over Girona as Antoine Griezmann ended a run of seven matches without scoring.

The visitors will know that they surely have to beat the Blaugrana again today in order to stand any chance of lifting the title in May.

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid team news and predicted line-ups

Barcelona will be without Ousmane Dembele, who could also miss the trip to Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the Champions League next week.

Atletico’s Chelsea loanee Alvaro Morata is a major doubt to face Barcelona after spraining his ankle against Girona, while Diego Costa is struggling with a hamstring tear.

Atletico XI: Oblak, Arias, Gimenez, Godin, Juanfran, Rodri, Koke, Thomas, Niguez, Griezmann, Kalinic


Score prediction: Barcelona 3-2 Atletico

Barcelona were on a run of seven straight wins across all competitions before that epic game against Villarreal, while miserly Atletico have conceded only two league goals since February.

The hosts should get the win they need to move 11 points clear with seven games left to play, though expect it to be anything other than straightforward.
