Barcelona meanwhile need a win if they are to claim their fifth title in six years. Tata Martino side hold a better head to head record against Atletico following a 1-1 at the Vicente Calderon earlier in the season.
Should Atletico miss out then they will look to their two most recent results, a defeat away to Levante and a draw at home to Malaga as missed opportunities.
Diego Simone’s men, already through to the Champions league final, could have wrapped up the title last weekend with a win over Malaga however in the end they couldn’t add to Toby Alderweireld’s 74th minute equaliser.
Diego Costa missed out for Atletico last weekend with a hamstring injury however the Brazilian born striker is set to be fit for the Nou Camp showdown.
The 25 year old, named in Spain’s squad for the World Cup, has scored 36 goals in all competitions this season and his inclusion will be crucial to Atletico’s hopes.
The club have proved stubborn opposition for Barcelona this season having won one and drawn four of their five meetings in the league, Champions League and Super Cup.
Should Atletico hold out against the expected Barcelona onslaught then they would become the first team outside of Real or Barcelona to win the title since Valencia in 2004.
With just 25 goals conceded all season defence has been key for Simone and his men and defender Miranda want’s one final effort from his team-mates.
“They’ll come out strong and we will have to stay tight at the back because I’m sure we’ll score a goal against them,” the Brazilian defender said.
“To beat Barcelona, we have to play with a lot of intensity, to play well physically. We’ve been preparing for it very well all week and will arrive 100 per cent ready.”
Barcelona meanwhile have also stumbled in recent weeks drawing with both Getafe and Elche although they did return to winning ways midweek with a 3-2 win over Girona in the Copa Catalunya.
The game with Atletico will mark the final time Carlos Puyol will watch a game as a Barcelona player. The veteran defender, along with Victor Valdes, is set to leave the club at the end of the season but won’t get the chance to play as he is not 100% fit.
Neymar and Jordi Alba are also struggling with their fitness and will be assessed before the game while Gerard Pique is still feeling the effects of a cracked rib sustained the Champions league clash between the pair.
