Watch Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Live on Live Sport Network – football streaming at its best!
Barcelona did their league position no end of good with a dramatic derby day win away to Espanyol last Saturday evening. Having trailed to a 20th minute Coro goal for most of the match, they hit back in the 84th minute with a goal from Thierry Henry. Due to trouble in the crowd when Barcelona fans threw flares into the Espanyol section, nearly fifteen minutes of injury time was played, and with the last action of the game, Barcelona were awarded a contentious penalty decision which Lionel Messi duly dispatched with what was the last kick of the game, giving Barcelona a vital victory.
For their part, Atletico Madrid were surprisingly beaten at home by Sevilla, a result that saw the team from Seville leapfrog Atletico in the table. That was Atletico’s second defeat of the season and their first at home meaning they dropped to seventh in the league table. With a Wednesday evening Champions League game at home against Marseille before hand, they won’t be relishing the trip to Barcelona, especially with the Nou Camp team riding the crest of a wave after their derby victory.
With neither team facing serious injury problems at the moment, an exciting game of football between two flare sides is expected. Watch the Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid game live and online right here on Live Sport Network – the nets number one live football streaming site!
