Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview

The standout game of this weekend’s La Liga action sees two title titans go head-to-head as Atletico Madrid welcome Barcelona to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Barcelona have won just three of their last eight league outings and their three-game winning run was brought to an end by Real Betis last time out.

That was Barca’s first home league defeat in 26 months and left the door open for a host of other clubs to eye a title challenge this campaign.

Chief among them are Atletico Madrid, who have won each of their last four home league games and have lost just once in the league this campaign – fewer than any other side.

Barcelona are favourites for this encounter at odds of 13/10 with a home victory priced at 11/5 and the draw available at 23/10.

These fixtures tend to produce few goals with just 15 going in across the last seven meetings, so under 1.5 goals at 21/10 appears to be a solid bet with under 2.5 at 7/10.

A ‘double chance’ on Atleti to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 7/10 while a Barca win/draw outcome is at 19/50.

If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 3/1.

Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Predictions and Preview

One to watch for Atletico Madrid: Antoine Griezmann was the centre of attention this summer as he extended his Atleti stay after an approach from Barcelona. The Frenchman has six goals this season and is priced at 2/1 to score in this encounter.

One to watch for Barcelona: Luis Suarez has netted six goals in his last four La Liga outings to take him up to nine goals for the campaign and scored Barca’s only goal here last season. Suarez is 39/20 to find the net at any point in this clash.

Long shot: Atletico Madrid have the league’s best defensive record with just eight goals conceded in 12 games, while they have scored only 16 themselves. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are at 8/1.
