At Barça, the situation is far from idyllic and the club seems, little by little, to see the title slip through their fingers. Indeed, the Catalans have been losing points lately and they display a level of play which is ultimately quite worrying with notably a lack of offensive idea. This was felt during the last meetings. After a successful comeback against Mallorca (0-4), the men of Quique Setien had much more difficulty against Leganes (2-0) despite the victory. Then, they could not make the difference in Seville (0-0) before snatching a precious success against Bilbao (1-0). Finally, on Saturday, they had to settle for a point on the Celta Vigo field after having led 2 goals.
Opposite, Atlético Madrid has relaunched well in this championship and is a favorite for 3rd place. Not always convincing in the first months of competition, the Madrid club has shone in recent weeks and has taken a 4 point lead in the standings over its main competitor in the podium race, Sevilla FC. Authors of a good draw against Bilbao to resume (1-1), the Colchoneros then linked the successes and they have just dismissed Osasuna (0-5), Valladolid (1-0), Levante (0-1) and Deportivo Alaves (2-1) on Saturday evening.

The staff for FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid

3 important elements on the side of Barça. These are the potential starters De Jong, Dembélé and Sergi Roberto who are all on the ball. In addition to that, midfielder Arthur is in the process of leaving for Juventus and should no longer wear the blaugrana jersey. On Saturday, Uruguayan striker Suarez celebrated his comeback as a titular player by scoring a double. For his part, Griezmann is increasingly contested and he could this time start on the bench.
For Atlético, the potential titular defenders Felipe and Vrsjalko are still trapped in the infirmary and have been joined by the important defender Hermoso. Otherwise, everyone should be present on the Colchoneros side. Less in sight this season, the rough Diego Costa still scored his 4th goal of the season on penalty Saturday night.
