Atleti face mouthwatering tie against La Blaugrana

Bartomeu: "No nos dejaremos atacar; iremos hasta el final"

https://www.futbolmundial.com/ LALIGA EA SPORTS enters its decisive phase, the last 10 games of the league and things are heating up. While Real Madrid are running away with the title a place for 2nd, 3rd and 4th is at stake for Barcelona, Atletico and Girona. Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona meet this Sunday in one of the best matches that we have yet to see this season and that has a lot at stake, since it can determine the order of the European positions in the classification. Atlético de Madrid will be looking to bounce back to winning ways against a Barca side that is unbeaten in their last five games. FC Barcelona, for its part, does not stop looking at the leadership of Real Madrid and, week by week, fights to get a little closer to Los Blancos.

Diego Simeone’s team is fourth, with 55 points, two more than its immediate pursuer, Athletic Club. Six points ahead are Xavi’s team, which with 61 points does not see that far behind the leader Real Madrid, with 69. With 10 games left to play, anything is possible as long as they leave the Cívitas Metropolitano Stadium with three points, both for locals and visitors. The proximity of matchday 38 would mean that the loser would get into trouble. Either because the fight for fourth position would be closer or because the difference with Real Madrid becomes insurmountable.

Atleti is the best local team in the competition, with 40 points in 14 games

The duel of the first round of the competition, played in Barcelona, was won by Xavi’s team 1-0, thanks to a goal from Joao Felix a player owned by the red and white team. João Félix will once again be one of the great focuses of the match, both for the reception of what is still his fan base, that of Atlético de Madrid, and for his talent capable of unbalancing very close matches as the one on Sunday is assumed to be. Xavi will be in charge of that, trying to unbalance Simeone’s strong team with his talent. Lamine Yamal, the great revelation of LALIGA EA SPORTS, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski or João Cancelo are players capable of changing a game in one action, in one play. And that’s what Xavi wants.

But opposite is a team that has not lost at its stadium in LALIGA EA SPORTS since January 2023, precisely against FC Barcelona. Atleti is the best local team in the competition, with 40 points in 14 games (13 wins and one draw).
