The Atleti returns to the feudo Barcelona like leader of the classification, only with two points of advantage on the Real Madrid and Barça (76 vs. 74), by what to both teams only costs him the victory. In the case of the group directed by Ronald Koeman, the requirement is maximum. To add some new three points, would be surpassing to the ones of the 'Cholo' Simeone and positioning as the new leaders of LaLiga, waiting for what do the Real Madrid the Sunday in front of the Seville.
It is a party of double edge, in which all what was not a victory, would be complicating the options to carry the title for the culés, that return to the Camp Nou after the suffered victory in front of the Valency in Mestalla the past weekend.

It will be, besides, an ideal occasion to show that the Barcelona group does not hide in front of the adversities neither in the important moments.
The doubts of Simeone
In the edict of the Athletic of Madrid still there are several doubts of face to the duel in front of the Barça.
