Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid (By: MDG)
If this mach will have any goals then they will come in the first half. This is the 8th remaining match of the season in Spain so with seven more to go Atletico Madrid must beat Barcelona to cut the lead to only 5 points. This is a possible task for Atletico, Barcelona is going to face Manchester United in the first leg of the champions league in just four days so their whole focus won't be on this game alone. I believe that they won't start with a weaker squad rotation but they will take out their key players in the second half to get some rest before Manchester match. Most likely likes of Messi, Suarez and one more important midfielder.
Atletico Madrid with nothing to lose here but they can gain so much. Their top four finish is not in doubt and they should go in attack mode trying to beat Barca. In last game of Barca there were 8 goals, 4:4 draw with Villareal away. Barcelona rested Messi and Suarez but they did put them in for the remaining part of the second half to try and get a point, which they managed to do with two late goals.
