Spanish league title race has come right down to the wire with FC Barcelona trailing Atletico just 3 points and host them at Camp Nou for the last league game of the season. Its kind of a cup final as who ever wins this game will be crowned champions (well atletico just need a draw). Next two games are the most important ones for Atletico Madrid in their recent history they can do the double by winning La Liga and the Champions League this season.

Now Atletico Madrid have 89 points of 37 games in the league while Barcelona have 86 from 37 matches which put the last league game as a title decider. Barcelona of course coming into this game on the back of a 0-0 draw against Elche but that did not kill their chances of lifting la liga as Atletico Madrid drew against Malaga by 1-1 leaving the title race wide open till the last match week.

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Predictions:

Its a big game for both sides, turned out to be a league final and Barcelona can end the season with great pride if they can manager to win this game. Playing at home Barcelona should go into the match slight favourites and we can safely assume that home support will intimidating for atletico side who are on the verge of conquring not only spain but also europe.

I am going with a draw in this game and atletico madrid winning the spanish league title, but they will lose out to Real Madrid in the final of the Champions League, this is my opinion.
