Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview
After starting their campaign with three successive victories, Atletico’s season has been derailed with just five wins in 15 matches in all competitions since.
Diego Simeone’s side have lost just once in La Liga – at Real Sociedad – but a miserly six victories from 14 matches mean they sit in fourth and have just 16 goals from 14 league games.
Barcelona have badly struggled for form this season – they have already lost three league matches but do remain top of the table, albeit on goal difference ahead of Real Madrid.
The Blaugrana have won just four of their last 12 away matches in all competitions in a run stretching back to last season – although they did win, albeit unconvincingly, at Leganes last time out in the league.
Unsurprisingly due to their stature, the visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 13/8 with an Atleti victory priced at 17/10 and the draw available at 23/10.
Atleti have seen just 25 goals go in across their 14 league games to date so under 1.5 goals is priced at 23/10 with under 2.5 at a tempting 7/10.
A ‘double chance’ on Atleti to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 1/2 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 4/9.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 18/5.
One to watch for Atletico Madrid: Alvaro Morata has already scored seven times this campaign for Los Rojiblancos and has scored seven in his last 10 appearances for club and country. Is priced at 5/4 to score in this clash.
One to watch for Barcelona: Arturo Vidal has already notched up four goals in La Liga this season – against Real Betis, Sevilla, Real Valladolid and last time out against Leganes – and is at a tempting 6/1 to find the net here.
Long shot: Barcelona have conceded just twice in their last three games while Atleti have the best defence in the league with just nine goals against. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 17/2.
