The Catalans are almost certain to miss out in their league title defence in the coming weeks with Real Madrid zoning in on the top flight crown.

At the end of the weekend, Barcelona move back up into second place in the table, with Atletico Madrid’s own top four challenge uncertain.

Joao Felix continued to feel the wrath of the Atletico Madrid faithful as he opened the scoring in the Spanish capital.

The Portugal international has scored in both appearances against his parent club this season and Robert Lewandowski doubled the visitors advantage after the restart.

With Barcelona in the ascendency, Fermin Lopez capped off a strong night for the away side, as headed home to make it 3-0 late on before Nahuel Molina was sent off in added time.

A slip from Atletico Madrid means they go into the international break outside of the Champions League spots with nine league games still to play this season.
