FC Barcelona will go head to head with Atletico Madrid in a Spanish La Liga match at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys on 3 December.
Current Form
Barca were held to a 1-1 draw by Rayo Vallecano away on 25 November and the champions are undefeated in their last three games in the Spanish top-flight.
Barcelona returned to winning ways at home in the league when they defeated Deportivo Alaves in their last game at their temporary stadium, Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys.
Meanwhile, Atletico secured a 1-0 win over Real Mallorca at home on 25 November and they are undefeated in their last two matches in La Liga.
The Mattress Makers saw their two-match unbeaten run on the road in this competition come to an end when they lost to Las Palmas in their last away game.
Team News
Sergio Roberto and Gavi are on the Barcelona injury list and the Catalan giants have no suspension concerns.
On the other hand, Thomas Lemar is the only Atletico player who is currently out injured and the club has no suspension worries.
"I think it was a game of two halves. In the first, we dominated but didn't really go for the game," Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez said after his side's draw against Rayo.
"We were not aggressive. We lacked the mentality to go for it. If we want to win trophies this season, we have to change our mentality. The second half was good but not enough. We woke up too late. 
"We did what we wanted: dominated and created chances. We could have scored more. But we have to win these games if we want to win La Liga, so we have to be self-critical, too, and improve."
Barcelona emerged as 1-0 winners over Atletico in their last meeting in La Liga and the game took place at the Spotify Camp Nou on 23 April 2023.
As a result, Barca are enjoying a three-match unbeaten run in the league against the Mattress Makers having recorded three consecutive wins.
