This game could not have come at better time for the Catalan giants.
Atletico have been in a negative spiral lately and a cloud of uncertainty has surrounding the team after crashing out of the UEFA cup and losing their last 2 games in the league which allowed Sevilla to reduce the gap to only 2 points and put their chances to secure a CL berth in jeopardy.
On the other side, Barcelona have been performing brilliantly in the last 3 games which unsurprisingly coincided with a major improvement in the players' attitude and a big unity and sense of sacrifice on the pitch.
Ronaldinho will probably make his come-back to the starting XI after being rested in the semi-final game versus Valencia on Wednesday night which means one of the other 3 fantasticos will be benched.
In midfield, Iniesta will reclaim his position in the center at the expense of Deco who didn't seize his chance in the Copa. He'll play alongside Xavi who is in rich vein of form of late.
The same defensive line that started against Valencia will play this game unless Marquez recovers fully from his injury.
