Barcelona’s latest crisis is front page news on Tuesday with the papers in Spain seemingly keen to make the most out of the drama at the Camp Nou.

Sport go with ‘Maximum Tension’ on their front page and report that Barca take on Atletico on Tuesday amid disagreements between the players and the coaching staff.

The report also highlights just how crucial a game it is for Barcelona and that they simply must take all three points at the Camp Nou against Diego Simeone’s side.

The front page of Marca has Quique Setien and Simeone and a headline that reads ‘Atletico visit a powder keg.’

Their report also talks about what a crucial game it is for Setien and warns Barcelona that Atletico head into the match in good form.

Mundo Deportivo are focused more on the league title than Quique Setien and his players.

‘Here goes the league’ is their headline with the report noting Barcelona simply don’t have any margin for error now.

There’s also mention of a meeting between Bartomeu and Setien where the Barca boss was given the president’s support (for now at least).

And finally AS are also looking at tonight’s big match. They run with ‘Judges of La Liga’ and also talk about how Atletico are an in-form team, while Barca’s preparations have been overshadowed by growing tension at the club.
