Both teams are level on points in the 2023-24 season

Since LALIGA EA SPORTS began in 1929, Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona have faced each other a total of 172 times in league matches, with this fixture pitting two of the most successful teams in LALIGA against each other each season.

When was the first FC Barcelona vs Atlético de Madrid match played?

One of the main curiosities of FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid is when they played their first match in LALIGA EA SPORTS. It was in the 1928/29 season, specifically on March 10th 1929, with Atleti running out 4-1 winners. Los Colchoneros, who were playing at their home stadium, beat Barça in the first match between these two storied LALIGA teams thanks to braces from Cosme and Yllera. Parera scored Barça’s consolation that day, while it was Cosme, who scored after five minutes, who netted the first goal in the history of Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona’s LALIGA clashes.

Who has won this match more times, FC Barcelona or Atlético de Madrid?

The historic record favours Barça, who’ve picked up 78 wins in 172 matches against Atleti. Los Rojiblancos, meanwhile, have managed to beat FC Barcelona on 52 occasions. The two teams have tied in 42 matches.

Which player has played the most FC Barcelona vs Atlético de Madrid matches?

Across almost a century of LALIGA football, many of the very best players in league history have represented these sides. Since the turn of the century, however, Lionel Messi is the player who has played this precious encounter the most times, with a total of 30 matches against Atlético de Madrid. He is followed by Andrés Iniesta and Sergio Busquets, with 26, and Gerard Pique, who played 25 times against Los Colchoneros. For Atleti, current captain Koke leads the way with 23 appearances in this classic league encounter.

Which player has scored the most goals in FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid matches?

The top scorer in the history of Barça vs Atleti is, unsurprisingly, Lionel Messi, with a total of 26 goals in 30 matches. These numbers are only within reach of the best. César Rodríguez, the second highest scorer, also played for Barça, while Paco Campos (12) and Fernando Torres (8) have led the way against the Catalans for Atleti.

The highest-scoring FC Barcelona vs Atlético de Madrid match was back in 2006/07 when Los Blaugrana beat Atleti 6-0 at their old Estadio Vicente Calderón. The locals had almost no answer to the attacking thrust of the visitors, who came out on top thanks to goals from Messi (2), Gianluca Zambrotta, Samuel Eto’o, Ronaldinho and Andrés Iniesta.
