Match Preview & Team News
Atletico Madrid’s advantage over other title contenders could have been so much bigger if they were not surprisingly defeated by Athletic Bilbao ten days ago. Atleti barely got away with a narrow win against Elche last weekend, with their opponents missing penalty in the last seconds. This said, 4/5 odds offered on Barcelona to win are not a big surprise. Catalan giants are having their own problems with consistency though. Also, Ronald Koeman is suspended and won’t be able to be near the sideline. Read on our La Liga betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Besides Koeman, Barca also won’t be able to count on Braithwaite, Philippe Countinho and Ansu Fati who are injured. Barca had one huge opportunity to become new La Liga leaders last Thursday too, but they were stunned at home by Granada CF, losing the game 1-2. Last weekend’s visit to Mestalla also could have gone completely other direction. Eventually Blaugrana defeated Bats 3-2 FT thanks to maestro free-kick goal scored by Leo Messi. It will be very interesting to see Luis Suarez playing against his former team, especially after the way he departed from Camp Nou. Atletico Madrid were victorious versus this opponent in the first meeting this season on 21st November. Atleti won 1-0 thanks to the goal scored by Yannick Carrasco.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Importance of this clash is just too huge to expect an open game. Six out of the last eight head to head games between Atleti and Barca ended with two goals total or less. Our choice is going to be Under 2.5 FT at 9/10.
Barcelona defeated Simeone’s squad only once in the last four meetings. Their back line is looking very unconfident lately, so we decided to back visitors with a double chance here. The current price is 1/1.
