Barcelona and Atletico share spoils

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid played a draw in an important match that can be a potential title decider.

The match ended 0-0 as both of the clubs as Atletico Madrid couldn’t snatch a win even though they dominated most part of the game.

Lionel Messi seemed to be the most likely to score for the hosts, forcing Jan Oblak into a diving save after a gliding run through the top of the box. Luis Suarez and Yannick Carrasco came close in the first half, but neither side could give Atletico Madrid the lead.

Araujo had scored in the second half only to be ruled offside. Oblak saved Gerard Pique’s header from a Messi cross, before Ousmane Dembele headed wide late on. Messi also curved a free-kick just over the crossbar.

Atletico Madrid sit first with 77 points in the league with Barcelona in second with 75 points. Real Madrid are third with 74 points with a game in hand.
