Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid: Live stream, TV channel, how to watch La Liga
When Barcelona faces Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, the 2019 La Liga Champions will be within striking distance of returning to No. 1 in the 2020 season standings.
Atletico, currently in 3rd place, isn’t going to just roll over for them though. They want to continue their 4-game win streak, and close the 11-point gap between the two teams.
There’s a lot riding on Tuesday’s match for Barcelona. If they lose, they’ll give a confidence boost to Real Madrid, who slid into 1st place last week after a 2-1 win over Real Sociedad. A loss would also add pressure to an already tense away game scheduled for July 5 against Villareal, and give red hot Atletico a serious chance to cruise past them into 2nd place before the end of the season.
A win, on the other hand, would put Barca right back in 1st place, albeit by only a single point.
Barcelona coach Quique Setien addressed reports of a rift between himself and his players ahead of the match.
“It’s true that you often have arguments with players as you do in everyday life and that’s nothing new,” Setien told BBC Sport.
“What we have to do is try to convince everyone that we have to defend a common idea,” he added. “We’re more concerned about the general atmosphere of the team and overall the relationship with the squad is good. It’s true that we don’t agree about certain things but I don’t think there’s any problem worth mentioning.”
