The upcoming game between Atletico and Barcelona will be the 175th match between them in their history.

In the latest game they easily outplayed Sporting 1:4 and before that won against Celta 3:2 and Leganes 2:0. As for the home matches of the team, Atletico only lost only one of them while they won their all four latest home matches against Las Palmas 1:0, Betis 1:0, Celta 3:2 and Leganes 2:0.

As for Barcelona, they took an advantage of the mistake of Real Madrid and managed to shorten the distance to the leaders of the championship. In fact, they are still only one point below Real, but the Madridistas only have one extra game to play. In the latest five matches Barcelona gained 13 points of 15 possible as they outplayed Eibar 0:4, Athletic 3:0, Alaves 0:6 and Leganes 2:1 and drew Betis 1:1.

In the first round game of the national championship the teams drew 1:1 and in the Copa del Rey Barcelona won 2:3 after two legs. Atletico look really solid in the home matches, yet, Barcelona are very strong in the away ones. Moreover, Barca are the strongest team of the championship according to their results in the away matches. We think that the upcoming game will be a very interesting one and we’ll see the goals scored by both of the teams.
