Barcelona vs Atlético Madrid: LaLiga preview
Saturday sees leaders Atlético Madrid visit third-placed Barcelona with four games to go in what is proving an increasingly enthralling LaLiga title race, in a crunch clash that viewers in the US can watch on Fanatiz.
Atlético, who have led LaLiga for much of the season, had seemed poised to relinquish top spot to Barça on 29 April, only for the Blaugrana to surprisingly lose their postponed matchday-33 clash at home to Granada and hand the initiative back to Diego Simeone’s men.
And after wins for Atlético, Barça and Real Madrid last weekend, Los Rojiblancos go to the Camp Nou still two points clear and with the knowledge that a first championship since 2014 will be theirs if they win all of their final games, with fixtures against Real Sociedad, Osasuna and Real Valladolid to follow Saturday’s match-up.
As for Barça, although they can leapfrog Atlético with a win at the Camp Nou on Saturday, the Catalans’ inferior head-to-head record against second-placed Madrid, with whom they are level on points, means they no longer have their fate in their own hands.
Indeed, victory over Atleti could ultimately serve to hand the title to their arch rivals, who host Sevilla in another top-four clash on Sunday. A draw in Barcelona would also send Madrid top if Los Blancos win, as Zinedine Zidane’s side have the better head-to-head record against Atlético, too.
