LIVE MATCH: Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid

Liga clash this Sunday. Currently tied in points in the standings, both teams seem evenly matched, setting the stage for a potential draw.

Barcelona’s recent form has been somewhat unpredictable, a trend initiated by their defeat to Real Madrid in the El Clasico. Over their last six matches across all competitions, they have secured only three victories, resulting in a drop to the fourth position in La Liga.

In their latest La Liga encounter, Barcelona had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano. However, they swiftly bounced back in the Champions League, clinching a 2-1 win over FC Porto on Tuesday.

A positive note for Barcelona is their solid performance at home, having suffered only one defeat in the El Clasico. Under Xavi’s management, they have won nine out of their last ten home matches, although they have failed to keep a clean sheet in the past four.

While Barcelona grapples with inconsistency, Atletico Madrid is on an upward trajectory. They have won their last four matches across all competitions, surpassing Barcelona to claim the third spot in the standings.

In their recent La Liga fixture, Atletico Madrid secured a 1-0 victory over Mallorca, with Antoine Griezmann’s second-half effort proving decisive. This success was followed by a 3-1 win over Feyenoord, propelling them to the Champions League round of 16.

Despite a setback in their last La Liga away match, where they were defeated 2-1 by Las Palmas, Atletico Madrid has demonstrated quality on the road, suffering just one loss in their last six away matches.
