Separated by only two points in the table, Barcelona and Atlético Madrid meet at the Camp Nou in a long-anticipated showdown with major title implications.
Barcelona and Real Madrid, even on 74 points, have shaved Atlético's lead down since New Year's but have dropped points in their own right in recent weeks.
However, a Barcelona win will see La Blaugrana leap Atlético in the table before Real faces fourth-place Sevilla on Sunday (Real holds the tiebreaker over Barça due to its head-to-head record).

This time around, Atlético will have Luis Suárez available to face his former side for the first time after missing the first meeting when he tested positive for COVID-19 .
