The top two in Spain, Atletico and Barcelona go head to head on Saturday with the outright lead at the top of the table up for grabs.

The pair have gone toe to toe for much of the season and with just goal difference separating the pair this weekend’s clash is one of the most hotly anticipated clashes of the season to date.

Both teams are in good form with Atletico picking up 25 points from a possible 27 in their last 9 games while Barcelona recovered from their first league of the season at the start of December to win their next three matches scoring 11 goals in the process.

The Catalan outfit are set to be boosted by the return of Lionel Messi. The diminutive forward returned to action midweek following a two month lay-off and made an instant impact, scoring 2 goals in the 4-0 Copa del Rey win over Getafe.

Brazilian forward Neymar is expected to be fit after missing the midweek game through a bout of gastroenteritis while Xavi will feature after being rested for the clash.

Atletico, drew with Valencia in the cup midweek, will be without Mario Suarez for the game while Diego Godin is a doubt.

Former Barcelona striker David Villa will hope to be given the chance to impress against his former club.

The Spanish striker was rested for the trip to the Mestalla midweek.

Rather interestingly, the clubs have only met three times in the last 20 years while both have occupied top spot with Atletico winning two of those clashes. The first time the two teams faced off was in the 1995/96 season.

Barcelona came into that match at the Calderón with 32 points, one less than Atletico but lost 3-1 to drop four points behind. The two teams maintained their positions at the top of the table and when they met later in the season Atletico once again claimed the points. That season the Colchoneros went on to claim their last La Liga title.

Barcelona got revenge last season when they won 4-1 at the Nou Camp in their last encounter as a top duo with the winner in the dual once again going onto claim the title.
