Barcelona host Atletico Madrid in the final game of the season at the Nou Camp where a win for the Catalans will allow Tata Martino's side to clinch the La Liga title.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 5pm BST. Live coverage will be available on Sky Sports 1 Red Button, Sky Sports 1 HD, Sky Sports 4 and Sky Sports 4 HD.


Barcelona are currently three points behind the league leaders and a win here will take them level on points with Atletico but ahead on a head to head comparison.

Though the Catalans have been very unwhelming this season, they are on the brink of their second La Liga title in consecutive years with both Madrid rivals dropping points in the run-in.

Both teams ended in a 0-0 draw at the Vincente Calderonin January, which has handed the initiative to Barcelona, who have the league title in their own hands.

Martino has the chance to save his Barcelona career with a win, which has been under severe scrutiny after they crashed out of the Champions League.

The Catalans are likely to be without Neymar, who is out with a toe injury and Jordi Alba who is suffering from a hamstring strain.

Meanwhile, Atletico have only themselves to blame after having to come into the last day of the season to secure their first league title since 1996.

A win against Malaga in their last game would have sealed the title for Atletico, but they failed to seize the advantage and have to take atleast a point from the Nou Camp to be crowned winners.

Diego Costa is expected to be fit after recovering from a hamstring problem while Cristian Rodriguez is still out for the game. Diuego Simeone's team have been through a brilliant run this season and can cap off a double if they can defeat Barcelona later today and follow that up with a win over Real Madrid in the finals of the Champions League next weekend.

What the Managers Say

Tata Martino: "Teams that play like Atlético are much more uncomfortable when they have to come from behind than they are when they are winning. Yes, they did come from behind to beat Chelsea, in the Champions League semi-final second leg, but that hasn't always been the case."

Diego Simeone: "We have always kept the same identity. I do not think this will change for the last game. Personality will be important. To have arrived at this point, we have put in a lot of work and effort. It has not been easy, but we are here on merit. I have very nice feelings - it's a big game. We go there with intent and desire to compete. Hopefully the team will be prepared to show that on Saturday."
