The third-placed Blaugrana narrowed the gap to Atlético to just two points following their 3-2 victory over Valencia last weekend. Ronald Koeman's Barça can leapfrog the Colchoneros at the top of the table with victory in what promises to be an epic encounter.

Who will win Barca vs Atlético Madrid?
Lionel Messi has been in the news again this week, with reports the superstar is nearing a decision to continue his illustrious career with Barcelona. In what would be a massive boost for the La Liga giants, the Argentine appears set to spurn huge offers from Paris Saint-Germain and EPL champions-in-waiting Manchester City.
Messi scored a brace in Barça's recent victory over Valencia. At 33, Messi has had another superb return of 28 goals from 32 La Liga matches this season.
We're tipping Barça to win 2-1 at Camp Nou but they will need to start strongly. They have conceded the first goal in 2 of their past 3 matches and in 14 out of 34 games this season. If they do that against the defensively strong Atleti, it could be costly.
