We will see whether Barcelona have what it takes in the La Liga title race when they entertain Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.

Barca have dropped below title rivals Real Madrid in recent weeks. They let slip four points in their last three fixtures with away draws at Sevilla (0-0) and Celta Vigo (2-2). With Real now two points ahead at the summit, how will Barcelona respond?

Barcelona Form & News


Barcelona are struggling by their own standards at present. Away draws at Sevilla and Celta Vigo have seen Barca drop four valuable points in their last three matches. Those dropped points have handed Real Madrid the advantage in the title race. They are back at the Camp Nou for this one - where they have won 15 of the last 16 fixtures.

Barca will be without Frankie De Jong, Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto for the visit of Atletico.

Atletico Madrid Form & News


Atletico Madrid are on a fine run of form, winning four matches in a row. Their latest triumph came on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over Deportivo Alaves.

They are also on a 12-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, stretching back to a defeat to city rivals Real Madrid in February.

Diego Simeone's charges have kept clean sheets in three of the last four victories and appear to be back to their stubborn selves.

Sime Vrsaljko and Mario Hermoso are the only two absentees for Atletico Madrid.
