Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid live streaming today for free. Barcelona are top of la liga with 43 points from 15 games, winning 14 and drawing 1. They have scored 3.33 goals per game while conceding 1.13 for a total goal difference of +33. Their recent form has seen 5 straight wins with an aggregate score of 18-5. All 5 games went over 2.5 goals.After being outdone by Real Madrid last season, Barca have regrouped well and are coasting along this season, scoring goals for fun. There isn’t really a problem in sight for the Blaugrana, with the exception of the injury that Fabregas sustained last weekend, which rules him out of contention for tonight’s game. They do seem to slightly lack discipline at the back though, having conceded an average of more than a goal per game, with 17 in their 15 league matches. With three clean sheets in their last six games, and an attack which scored an average of 3.33 league goals per game, however, one doubts that much sleep will be lost over the defensive concerns. They also enjoy a superior record against Atletico, having won all four of their most recent encounters, conceding just 2 and scoring 12 in the process.Atletico Madrid are 2nd in la liga with 37 points from 15 games, winning 12, drawing 1 and losing 2. They have scored 2.33 goals per game while conceding 0.87 for a total goal difference of +22. Their recent form has seen 4 wins and 1 defeat with an aggregate score of 13-2. 2 of the 5 games ended with over 2.5 goals.tletico’s loss to Real was followed by another away loss to Viktoria Pizen on their trip to the Czech Republic, which saw them lose their seven match winning streak to two consecutive losses. They were quick to make amends last weekend though, as a 6 – 0 thrashing of Deportivo la Coruna in front of home fans was followed by a 3 – 0 win over Getafe midweek in the Copa del Rey. With four clean sheets in their last six games, i.e. in all matches except the two they lost, Los Rojiblancos are used to wrapping up games with clean sheets; something any team is very unlikely to do against Barcelona. Thus, it may be up to the attack to produce a rare moment of brilliance or two to give them a lead, allowing them to sit back and absorb Barca pressure, being one of the few teams in the league who might actually be able to do so.
The top game of the week in Spain sees the top 2 in the league play for the first time this season. Barcelona currently hold a 6 point lead over Atletico and are unlikely to be caught, Atletico’s attention will be on city rivals Real Madrid who are just 5 points behind them and closing.Barcelona’s squad is the fittest it has been all season and they have almost a full strength side to pick from with just long term absentee’s Cuenca, Abidal and Muniesa out. They have got their first choice centre half pairing of Puyol and Pique starting games which makes them much more solid defensively.The big news from Barcelona is that Lionel Messi has broken the calendar year goalscoring record which was held by Gerd Muller at 85. Messi after another brace midweek is now sitting on 88 goals and is likely to break the 90 goal barrier before the year finishes, a record that could stand for ages.Atletico have a star striker of their own in Radamel Falcao who scored a stunning 5 goals in their 6-0 win over Deportivo last week. He still lags behind Messi with 16 league goals to Messi’s 23 but he is the hot property in Europe at the moment and many clubs will be in for his signature in January or next summer.Barcelona will be without influential midfielder Cesc Fabregas for the visit of Atletico Madrid in La Liga on Sunday evening. The Spain international is currently sidelined with a thigh injury he picked up in the win over Betis last weekend. This will likely result in Andres Iniesta moving from his position on the left to a deeper role in midfield.With Iniesta retreating back, David Villa may be given a start in the attacking trio alongside Lionel Messi and Pedro.Tito Vilanova’s men have been boosted by the return of Dani Alves to training after his injury. However, it is unlikely the Brazilian will be risked as he is not match-fit. Martin Montoya will likely feature at right-back.Atletico Madrid will welcome back defender Miranda into the starting XI for this weekend’s match as the Brazilian served his one-match suspension. Cristian Rodriguez is still recovering from a thigh injury and is unlikely to feature.
