Barcelona will have to fight for the Spanish league title after all.

"It's an important game, but there is still a long way to go", he told reporters at his pre-match presser.

But Barcelona chief Ernesto Valverde has responded, pleading with the Frenchman to not find the target. In their last two league games alone they had scored nine goals, with Griezmann scoring seven of them. A win on Sunday would move Barcelona 10 points clear of Atleti with 12 games to play.

Now it needs to win to restore its cushion and be able to focus on the return leg of its Champions League round-of-16 tie with Chelsea. Now that title could be on the line. "Barcelona is having a fantastic season".

The title race was blown open once again after the Catalan giants were held to a 1-1 draw by Las Palmas on Thursday evening.

The match will kick off at 3.15pm, or 4.15pm in Spain.

The Argentine, seemingly penned in by Gabi, Thomas Partey and Filipe Luis, danced away from all three but could only fire a weak shot straight at Oblak from just outside the box.

"There is no strategy to stop Lionel", Simeone said.

Atletico are doing well now, but they have been doing well since the beginning of the season. He had a hat trick against Sevilla last Sunday and scored four goals against Leganes on Wednesday.

"We have no doubt that we can get closer to our objectives", he said.

There was one nervy moment for the hosts five minutes from time as Diego Costa headed down for Kevin Gameiro to slam home.

Suarez's goals have also helped - he's up to 20 in the league - and Coutinho showed signs of magic against Atletico, but Messi is still the man.

Barcelona was 11 points ahead of Atletico a few weeks ago, but Simeone's team has been thriving.

Barcelona Boss is ready for the upcoming clash against Atletico Madrid considering it as another major final.

Simeone was pragmatic about his club's hopes of regularly upsetting the Barca-Real Madrid stronghold.

"Costa brings all we expected from him - ambition, hard work passion and attacking power which gives us more possibilities", he said.
