No matter the outcome of Saturday's La Liga-deciding match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona at the Nou Camp, there won't be much celebrating in Barcelona. 

Atletico simply need a draw to win La Liga, while the Catalans need all three points to win a second consecutive domestic title. 

Even if Barcelona do defeat upstart Atleti, according to Pete Jenson of the Mail Online, there will be no open-bus celebratory parade, as the Barca camp feels this season has been a bit of a failure, based on their lofty standards. 

There will be a sense of accomplishment if Atletico are to break the Real Madrid-Barcelona, top-of-the-table dominance and win their first Spanish title since 1996. But there won't be much celebrating in Barcelona, as traveling Atletico supporters were only allocated 447 tickets. 

The Nou Camp holds 98,787 fans.
