Barcelona 1-0 Atletico Madrid: LaLiga TV channel, live streaming online

Barcelona hosts Atletico Madrid in a matchup between the top two teams in La Liga. 

Barcelona, which has not lost a league game yet this season (21 wins, five draws) holds a seven-point advantage over second-place Atleti with 12 games remaining. 

Ernesto Valverde's team is also in good shape in the Champions League, as a late Lionel Messi goal secured a 2-2 draw in the first leg of the round of 16 at Chelsea. 

Atletico is second with 61 points, a full ten points ahead of in-city rivals Real Madrid, but were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage. Their European escapades will happen in the Europa League, a competition they'll feel they can win. 

When these two teams met at the Wanda Metropolitano earlier this season, a late Luis Suarez goal salvaged a 1-1 draw for Barcelona.

Everything you need to know as first meets second in the Primera Division at Camp Nou this weekend.

Barcelona meet Atletico Madrid on Sunday in what will be a huge title test for both teams in La Liga.

Ernesto Valverde's side saw their lead cut to five points at the top of the table after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Las Palmas in the Canary Islands on Thursday .

And, after arriving on the mainland just before 4am on Friday morning, their players were back in training at 12:30 to prepare for Sunday's big game.

Atletico, meanwhile, were in action at home to Leganes on Wednesday and won that match 4-0, with all four goals scored by Antoine Griezmann. 

Diego Simeone's side have only lost once all season and drew 1-1 with Barca at the Wanda Metropolitano back in October.

Here, New Gersy takes a look at everything you need to know ahead of Sunday's clash at Camp Nou...

Team News

Nelson Semedo is expected to be out for five weeks after picking up a hamstring injury in last Saturday's 6-1 win at home to Girona.

Meanwhile, Sergi Samper is out with a long-term problem. The midfielder was on loan at Las Palmas, but damaged ankle ligaments in a game against Eibar in January and has returned to Barcelona for the rest of the season in order to recover and receive treatment.

Jordi Alba picked up his fifth league booking of the season against Girona and missed the trip to Las Palmas, but he will be available again this weekend. Meanwhile, Luis Suarez managed to avoid a yellow card on Thursday and will feature, although he is still just one booking away from a ban.


Barcelona remain unbeaten in La Liga and coming through this match with that record intact will make the Blaugrana big favourites to claim the title at the end of the season.

Valverde will therefore pick his strongest side and the only real doubt is in midfield, with Andres Iniesta, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele competing for two spots alongside Sergio Busquets and Ivan Rakitic.

If Iniesta starts, Coutinho could feature as well, but given that his preferred position is also on the left, Dembele may get the nod to provide more balance on the right.

With Semedo injured, Sergi Roberto will start at right-back, with Alba back from suspension to replace Lucas Digne on the left. Gerard Pique, rested on Thursday, will return alongside Samuel Umtiti in central defence.

Atletico Madrid 
Atletico have lost just once this season in La Liga and are on form after thrashing Sevilla 5-2 away from home and then Leganes 4-0 in their last two league games.

Griezmann scored seven goals in those two matches and his partnership with Diego Costa in attack is really starting to blossom for the Rojiblancos.

Simeone's side have a small squad for the remainder of the season after Yannick Carrasco and Nico Gaitan both moved to China and goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya joined Real Sociedad this week.

In addition, defenders Lucas Hernandez and Stefan Savic are doubtful for Sunday's game.
