We last saw the league leaders in action when they were held to a 1-1 at home by a dogged and determined Espanyol side that entered the match as outsiders. Barca were the red-hot favourites to win that game but found their opponents in a menacing mood and a share of the spoils proved to be a fair result following a competitive 90 minutes. Alonso scored early before Joselu scored a late penalty to level. Both teams finished that match with 10 men as tempers flared near the end.

Atletico Madrid and Barcelona lock horns for the first time since the pair played out a stunning six-goal thriller almost a year ago. Barcelona won 4-2 at the Camp Nou in February of last year to level up the score following Madrid’s 2-0 win at this venue in the previous encounter. The stats tell us to expect another competitive match and with thirteen goals scored in the last five games, armchair fans hold high hopes of another free scoring 90 minutes. Will Atletico Madrid bag the three points needed to close the gap on the leaders or will Barca bank the away win and three points needed to remain in pole position? Let’s find out with 22bet’s big-match preview.
Atletico Madrid are a team capable of winning the La Liga and are always well supported by respected pundits making predictions in pre-season, but the home team still have a long way to go. They started the weekend sitting down in fourth place in La Liga with stats for the season showing eight wins, three draws and four defeats with twenty-three goals scored and fourteen conceded. The twenty-seven points amassed from their first fifteen games leaves Atletico behind Barcelona and Real Madrid on thirty-eight points with Real Sociedad sitting third in twenty-nine points against their name.
