Team news

Barcelona will still be without the likes of Martin Braithwaite, Philippe Coutinho and Ansu Fati as they're all injured.

Ronald Araujo is likely to start in a back three for Barca.

Lionel Messi, and Griezmann are expected to start up front together against Atletico.

Atletico don't have any major injury doubts, with Jose Gimenez the only slight one ahead of the game.

Thomas Lemar is probable to start in midfield alongside Geoffrey Kondogbia, while Luis Suarez starts up top with Angel Correa.


    Atletico Madrid have failed to win any of their last 14 away LaLiga games against Barcelona (D4 L10), their longest current winless ru away from home against any opponent in the competition.

    Their last win at Camp Nou in LaLiga was in February 2006 (3-1) under Pepe Murcia.


    Barcelona have lost just one of their last 21 LaLiga games against Atletico Madrid (W14 D6), 0-1 in the reverse fixtures this season.

    The last time Barca lost home and away in the league against Atletico was 2005/06 (1-2 and 3-1).


    And welcome to the live blog for Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid!

    Today's game has massive consequences at the top of the La Liga table.

    Atletico sit top of the table after 34 games on 76 points, but Real Madrid and Barca are just behind on 74.

    Sevilla are tagging along on 70 points in 4th, so they're not out of the title picture just yet either!

    A win for Barca will see them leapfrog the league leaders, and today's opponents by one point - before heading into the final three La Liga fixtures of the season against Levante, Celta Vigo and Eibar. Favourable.

    But the Catalan giants have proven that they're vulnerable against teams placed lower than them in the table.

    Barca suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Granada on April 29, stopping them from going to the top of the table.

    But they did manage to return to winning ways against Valencia.

    In terms of team news, Ansu Fati will not be returning to first-team football for a while.

    The wonderkid started the season strong but picked up a horrific knee injury which has seen him miss this season.

    And Fati is visiting specialists in Portugal, which isn't a good sign.

    Philippe Coutinho is also missing for Barca alongside former Middlesbrough forward Martin Braithwaite.

    As for Atletico, left-back Renan Lodi is unlikely to recover in time for today.

    Centre-back Jose Gimenez is 50/50.

    And Thomas Lemar could start in the midfield over Spaniard Saul Niguez.

    The teamsheets are due to be released in an hour so don't go anywhere!
