The Catalans secure vital 3 points to keep up with league leaders Real Madrid and Girona

Barcelona came out on top in their high-profile clash against Atletico Madrid 1-0 in a hard-fought match to keep in touch with La Liga leaders on Sunday night.

Xavi’s men started the match strongly, pressing the ball high and creating handful of chances.

Their efforts were rewarded in the 28th, when the former Atletico Madrid player Joao Felix put them in front with a delicate chip over Jan Oblak. It is only his second La Liga goal of the season, but what a time to get it.

Atletico tried to fight back and were pretty close to equalizing, but just lacked the precision in the last third.

With the result Barcelona sit 3rd in La Liga with 34 points, 4 adrift from League leaders Real Madrid and Girona. Atletico Madrid remain 4th with 31 points.
