Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid: Explosive La Liga round 27 tie on the cards this weekend

20:47, 02 Mar 2018

Matchday 27 of the Spanish top flight promises to be an explosive affair as Barca welcomes Atletico to the Nou Camp on Sunday. The first and second placed La Liga giants (respectively) will lock horns as each tries to go one better than the first leg’s 1-1 result.

Barca are already top of the log with a four-point cushion and a match in hand ahead of playing Las Palmas on Thursday. They are having a pretty decent season and are slight favorites to win this match. Leo Messi is definitely the star of the team, but of ultimate interest is how the Umtiti-Pique defence contain Atleti’s attack.

The Rojiblancos will be coming from a 4-0 win over Leganes in midweek. Antoinne Griezmann scored all four goals and will be excited to continue along the same vein. Should Barca come up with a way to stop the Frenchman, they will need even more resoures to keep the returning Diego Costa at bay.
