barcelona bus Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid, La Liga Title Decider: Open Thread

The entire La Liga season comes down to one game today to decide who will be crowned champions of the 2013/14 season. Atletico Madrid, who have had an incredible season under manager Diego Simeone, need only a draw or a victory to break the Barcelona-Real Madrid monopoly. But with Barcelona playing at home at Camp Nou, a win for the Blaugrana will knock Atleti off its perch, which will be a cruel way to end the season for the Madrid team.

    Too bad this game is on at the same time as the FA Cup final. I’m taping this one and will watch it after the FA Cup which I’ll watch live.

  2. Flyvanescence says:

    Neymar and Xavi injured or just dropped? I would have dropped Xavi but kept Neymar.

    On the bright side wont have to watch Neymar roll around like a baby.

    Brilliant game so far. Sanchez’s goal was out of this world. And the header by Godin was superb.
