Barcelona face the stiffest test of their La Liga title run-in so far when they host Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou on Tuesday. With Real now two points clear at the top, how do Barcelona respond in this huge La Liga clash of second versus third?

Barcelona Form


Barca have let top spot slip to bitter rivals Real Madrid after dropping four points in the last three games following away draws at Sevilla (0-0) and then at Celta Vigo (2-2) on Saturday.

It's unusual to think of Barcelona as faltering, but away draws at Sevilla and Celta Vigo is what that is. The dropped points have handed the title advantage to Real Madrid, and Barca look set for a real fight if they are to retain the tag of La Liga champions. 

Both of those draws came on the road, and they will welcome being back at the Camp Nou where they have won 15 of the last 16 matches.
