FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will go head-to-head in a top-of-the-table LaLiga clash at the Camp Nou this afternoon.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 17h15.
The title race was blown open once again after the Catalan giants were held to a 1-1 draw by Las Palmas on Thursday evening.
As a result, Barca only sit five points ahead of second place Atletico, who thrashed Leganes 4-0 on Wednesday evening.
Antoine Griezmann has been on fire in the past two games, having netted four goals against Leganes before bagging a hat-trick against Sevilla last weekend.
Atletico come into this encounter having won eight of their last nine La Liga matches.
In head-to-head statistics, these two sides have faced each other on 57 occasions, with Barca boasting 28 wins compared to Atletico's 15, while 14 matches ended in draws.
When these two sides met earlier in the season, they played to a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Here's how they line up:
Barcelona: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, Umtiti, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Coutinho; Messi, Suarez.
Atletico: Oblak, Luis, Godin, Gimenez, Vrsaljko, Thomas, Gabi, Koke, Saul, Griezmann, Costa.
