Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid start time and channels

The Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid fixture begins at 10:15 a.m. ET/7:15 a.m. PT today (Saturday, May 8). In the US, you'll be able to watch the match on BeIn, while UK viewers can tune into LaLigaTV.

The Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid live stream is here to deliver tense action, where everything matters more than ever. It's hard to remember a tighter season in La Liga. Four teams are within striking distance of the Spanish title with four matches left to play, so the stakes are high throughout. And this weekend will go a long way toward deciding a champion as the top four teams play each other.

In the case of league leaders Atletico Madrid, that means a trip to Barcelona to take on the Blaugrana. Barca finds itself level on points with archrival Real Madrid, but just two points behind Atletico. That means a Barcelona win will let them leap frog Atletico Madrid into the top spot on the table — in one of the biggest La Liga live streams of the weekend.

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi may be in his last year at the club, and would like to go out with a title if he could. Meanwhile, much of Atletico Madrid's success this year can be chalked up to the arrival of Luis Suarez, who came to the club after a successful stint with Barcelona.
