LIVE
Post.
Thanks for joining me tonight. See you tomorrow for the Ballon d'Or ceremony. Coverage starts at 19:15 CET.
90'
FT: Atlético 0-1 Barcelona. Atlético probably deserved something out of the game, but the magic of Messi has once again prevailed. The Messi household will be happy tonight, maybe more so tomorrow after the Ballon d'Or ceremony. Barca go top.
90'
And it leads to nothing.
90'
Last chance of the match. Atlético have a free-kick that they will cross in the box. They are throwing the kitchen sink at it. Oblak is up.
90'
3 minutes added time. Enough for an equaliser?
89'
What a goal from Messi. Ballon d'Or winner tomorrow???
87'
Great team goal. Messi runs with the ball, plays a one-two with Suárez and slots it in the bottom corner from the edge of the box. 1-0 Barca.
86'
MESSSSSSSSSSSIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
84'
As things stand Barca would be 3rd and Atlético would be 6th.
83'
Barcelona sub: Piqué off for Umtiti.
79'
Piqué is down here. He picked up a nasty knock to his knee, of course he could have been sent off earlier for a 2nd yellow as the referee decided not to award him a yellow card. Replays show he didn't actually touch Morata in that passage of play. Anyway, Umtiti will be coming on.
77'
Are we going to get a goal here?
74'
Atlético sub: Lemar on for Correa.
74'
Barca sub: Arthur off for Vidal.
72'
Carnage in the Barca defence. They are defending for their lives, just throwing bodies everywhere. It is working though. Roberto clears the ball from Morata's touch towards goal.
69'
Vitolo is booked for dissent.
69'
Another Barca counter-attack. Suárez crosses for Griezmann but he skies his volley over.
67'
Big change there taking off for Félix. Let's see if Vitolo can put some life back into this game.
66'
Atlético sub: Vitolo on for Félix.
64'
Looks like Vidal has been sent to warm up.
63'
Barca counter-attack. The ball is eventually crossed in for Suárez who hits it straight at Oblak.
60'
Messi has a shot from about 20 yards that Oblak dives and saves easily.
59'
The 2nd half is much more even.
53'
A draw doesn't really suit any side here. Of course, they would both take it, but if Atlético want to close the gap they really should win. Likewise, if Barca don't win Real Madrid will stay top.
51'
Rakitic is booked for a foul on Morata.
47'
Griezmann has a shot from outside the box, but it is hit straight at Oblak.
46'
And we're back!!!!
45'
HT: Atlético 0-0 Barcelona. Atlético probably deserve to be in front, but Ter Stegen has had a stormer which means both teams go in at the break level. All to play for in the 2nd half.
42'
Barca hit the bar!!!! Messi crosses in the corner, Piqué gets up and heads it off the ground, it bounces and hits the bar!!!
40'
Another great save from Ter Stegen. The corner comes in and Morata's header is saved well from Ter Stegen.
36'
Suárez fires a shot wide from outside the box.
33'
Good pressuring form the hosts. It ends with Félix's shot being blocked, but Atlético are showing encouraging signs.
32'
Piqué is booked for a foul on Hermoso.
31'
Based on previous matches between the pair a draw was predicted. Will that be the outcome this time?
26'
First Barca chance. The ball is passed to Rakitic, but he hits a weak shot from the centre of the box that Oblak comfortably saves. He probably should have scored.
25'
Herrera tries to find the far corner from just inside the box but he puts it wide. Barca are getting lucky here.
21'
Correa is booked for a bad foul.
20'
WHAT A SAVE TER STEGEN!!!! The ball is crossed in and Ter Stegen saves Morata's side-footed volley from point-blank range.
19'
The ball is crossed in and headed away.
18'
Huge chance. Firpo is booked for giving away a foul right at the edge of the box. Step up free-kick specialists.
16'
Good chance. Trippier swings in the free-kick and Morata heads over.
14'
The hosts have started this game brighter. They could get a goal while they're on top.
8'
Thomas is booked for a bad tackle.
7'
Atlético hit the post. The ball is crossed in by Hermoso, is deflected and hits the post. Almost 1-0.
5'
Both teams trying to get into this match.
1'
And we're off!!!
Prev.
And the teams are coming out!!!
Prev.
Huge match for both sides. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
Prev.
Last match between these two in Madrid ended in a 1-1 draw in 2018.
Prev.
Incredible here. Griezmann has just been whistled at by a huge amount of Atlético fans. Is that really deserved?
Prev.
Griezmann is here.
Prev.
Perhaps the big news is that Griezmann is starting against his old club, his old manager and playing in his old stadium. I wonder how he will get on.
Prev.
Atlético make two changes from the side that lost 1-0 against Juventus. Lodi and Vitolo drop out for Félix and Correa.
Prev.
Barcelona make 3 changes from the side that beat Dortmund 3-1. Umtiti, Busquets and Dembélé are replaced by Piqué, Arthur and Griezmann.
Prev.
Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Piqué, Lenglet, Firpo; Rakitic, De Jong, Arthur; Messi, Suárez, Griezmann
Prev.
Atlético XI: Oblak; Trippier, Felipe, Hermoso, Saúl; Correa, Herrera, Thomas, Koke; João Félix, Morata
Prev.
Hello and welcome to Madrid for this crucial match. Barca can return to the top of the league with a win, team news to come shortly.
