On Sunday night, Barcelona defeated Atletico Madrid 1-0 by maintaining their slim lead.

The visitors had a strong start to the game and took the lead through Dembele in the 22nd minute, but Atletico took control after that.

Before the break, Griezmann made a wonderful clearance out of Ter Stegen, and they continued where they left off in the second half.

Torres came off the bench to find back of the net, but his goal was later ruled out for offside against the flow of play, and Griezmann’s shot was denied on the line in the final seconds.

Both sides finished the encounter with 10 players following an off-the-ball combat between Savic and Torres that ended with straight red cards.

With this victory, Barcelona has now won seven straight games across all competitions and have moved three points ahead of Real Madrid in the standings.Barcelona battle it out with Altetico Madrid to earn three points lead at top of LaLiga
