It's crunch time for Barcelona, and the Catalans are in a bad way. Having slipped behind arch-rivals Real Madrid, they have a two-pint deficit to make up and only six games left to play. Worse still, they face a resurgent Atletico Madrid on rampant form. Find out how to watch a free Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid live stream through Premier Sports below.
The games are coming at break-neck speed in Spain right now, with the powers that be determined to finish off the season before anything else can get in the way. That seems to have suited Atletico Madrid who have pushed aside the other Champions League hopefuls with a four-game winning streak and muscled their way to third.
Barca, in contrast, have been in comparative free fall with two draws in their last three games. The word on the street is that there is unhappiness in the Camp Nou with Leo Messi reportedly at war with Quique Setien's no.2, and the head coach himself looking uncertain to remain in charge of the Catalans next season.
Defenders Stefan Savic and Mario Hermoso are unavailable for Atleti. Barcelona are be without Ousmane Dembele and Frenkie De Jong but Sergio Busquets returns from suspension alongside 20-year-old centre midfielder Riqui Puig.
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid kicks off at 9pm, BST. UK viewers can watch on Premier Sports. Those in the States will need BeIn Sports.

Watch Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid from abroad using a VPN
UK citizens away from home or stuck abroad will need a VPN to access the the free Premier Sports live streams from outside the UK. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access – even if you’re a UK national.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
