Atletico vs Barcelona clash headlines La Liga weekend complete with Basque and Valencian derbies

Lionel Messi

Bengaluru, November 30: The table Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona clash headlines a La Liga weekend schedule which also includes derby clashes in the Basque Country and Valencian region.

Fourth-placed Atletico welcome joint-leaders Barcelona in a fixture which through recent seasons has often been key in deciding the destination of the title, and once again brings together the division's top scorers (Barcelona) and meanest defence (Atletico).

Blaugrana forward Antoine Griezmann will be keen to make his mark on his return to the Wanda Metropolitano, while current team-mate Lionel Messi will aim for a 25th career goal against Atletico, whose coach Diego Simeone wants a first LaLiga victory over Barca in 16 attempts.

Real Madrid also go into the weekend joint top of the table and could go clear temporarily at least when they visit Alaves.
