Here is all you need to know before Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona La Liga game at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday.

Preview

Barcelona coach Xavi urged his team to improve its finishing against Atletico Madrid on Sunday in La Liga, where it will be without top goal scorer Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish forward has 13 goals in the top flight but will miss the first of three matches suspended following a red card against Osasuna in November before the World Cup break.

Barcelona leads the league on goal difference ahead of Real Madrid, and can take an outright lead after the defending champion lost 2-1 to Villarreal on Saturday.

Atletico, fourth, has not been at its best this season but Xavi anticipated a tricky encounter.

“(Simeone’s) teams are defensively very well drilled,” said Xavi. “They’ve been changing systems and it’s hard to predict how his team will play. Atletico have virtually no defensive holes, we have to take advantage of our chances as we won’t have many.”
