Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Predictions


Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips Explained


Barcelona travel to the Spanish capital this weekend in buoyant mood. Seven wins from their opening seven La Liga fixtures of the new campaign have seen them open up a five point gap over second placed Sevilla and surprisingly, a seven point lead over bitter rivals and defending champions Real Madrid at the top of the table.

The Catalan club have been in stellar form since their humiliating Spanish Super Cup drubbing at the hands of Real in August, winning nine on the bounce in all competitions. With 23 league goals to their name already this term, and just two conceded, they are evidently on fire. What's more, Lionel Messi has the appearance of a man who has embarked on potentially another record breaking season with 11 goals in seven league starts.

Messi returns from South America having guided Argentina to next summer's World Cup at the death. Needing a win in Ecuador in their final qualifier to ensure at least a play-off berth, the 30-year-old rose to the occasion, netting a hat-trick to help his country to a 3-1 victory.

Likewise, Luis Suarez was on target with a brace as Uruguay secured World Cup qualification in their last qualifier with a 4-2 win at home to Bolivia. 

Confidence is high at the club, then, but Atletico are notoriously difficult to beat, and indeed are unbeaten this term. Atleti allowed fewer shots on goal than any other club in Europe last season and with a record of four wins and three draws to their name so far this season, seem intent on continuing in that vein of form.

In their last four meetings with Barca they have held the Blaugrana to two 1-1 draws and suffered two narrow 2-1 defeats. A similar tight contest is expected here and we'll back a draw and correct score of 1-1.
