A win for FC Barcelona against Atletico Madrid would certainly help the club to further stamp its dominance of La Liga, but it is not very likely that Madrid will make it easy for La Liga’s number one club; when the two top teams in La Liga come together, you can expect some exciting action. The gap between them is currently six points, and Atletico Madrid is determined to reduce it.
Let’s take a look at the clubs. So far this season FC Barcelona has enjoyed 14 wins and has lost just one match. In the club’s history this is the very best start to the season it has ever had and even beats the previous record held by Real Madrid. It seems that Tito Villanova, their newly appointed manager, has cast some sort of spell over them despite the fact that many people had been critical regarding his appointment.
Atletico Madrid has played 15 games from which the club has accumulated 37 points. Sitting 6 points in the table behind FC Barcelona, they are also five points ahead of their nearest rivals Real Madrid. A major asset of the side is their striker Radamel Falcao and from 14 starts he has scored 16 goals with one of them being heralded as the goal of the year. Although Messi with seven goals more is the highest scorer in La Liga, Falcao is still three goals ahead of third place striker Ronaldo.
However, most of Atletico Madrid’s goals have been scored at home with just one third of them scored in away matches, so scoring at FC Barcelona Camp Nou stadium won’t be easy.
