Barcelona can take a huge step towards the La Liga title tonight with a win over Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid. After all, a Blaugrana victory would put Barca nine points clear at the top of the table, with Real Madrid likely to be another two points behind - provided that they defeat Javier Aguirre's Espanyol. Barcelona have been in excellent form as of late and are yet to suffer defeat at the Camp Nou under Tito Vilanova. Can Atletico pull off an upset and blow the title race wide open with a win?

They certainly have a chance. While they have struggled for consistency away from home, Atleti will fancy their chances against a relatively suspect Barcelona defense, especially with reported Chelsea target Falcao in such fine goal-scoring form. El Tigre would be top-scorer of any other league in Europe with 16 goals from 14 appearances, but remarkably the Colombian hotshot is still seven goals behind Lionel Messi in the race for the Pichichi. Do you think Messi's brilliance will inspire the Blaugrana to victory, or do you think Falcao will stun the world with a virtuoso performance en route to an away win? Whatever your opinion, vote in our poll below and comment with your score prediction to be in with a chance of winning a Barca-related prize at the season's end. Best of luck!
