The biggest match of the La Liga season is only two days away and will likely be a deciding factor in this year's battle to win the league trophy. Barcelona will be traveling to take on Atletico Madrid, and you can bet it will be one for the ages.

With these two giants separated by only goal difference in the table, neither side will be settling for a draw. This is going to be an all-out war.

In the end, it will simply come down to which club wins the most tactical battles. Diego Simeone has proven himself to be one of the best tacticians in the world over the past few seasons, but Tata Martino has some tricks up his sleeves as well.

In this article, we will take a look at which tactical battles will decide the match on Saturday and determine which side is likelier to come away victorious.
