Atletico Madrid vs FC Barcelona: Predictions and Betting Tips
After going into their seventh match unbeaten, Atletico inexplicably lost to Alaves, who were bottom of the table before the game. Diego Simeone’s boys were weaker than usual and the goal was conceded from a poorly defended corner.
The start of the season at the Wanda Metropolitano has not been the best for Atletico either, as they have drawn two out of three games and won just one. They have scored three goals while conceding only two.
Atletico have now gone four games in a row without losing to Barça, with two wins and two draws.
After several matches without a win and with a very poor performance, Barça found victory again, winning 3-0 against Levante, in a match marked by the return of Ansu Fati after almost a year out injured.
The generational change has well-and-truly taken root in Barça, in the match against Levante nine of the 16 players who participated were under 23 years of age. Among the youngsters to be highlighted are Gavi Paez, Ronald Araujo and Ansu Fati himself.
Barça’s only two away games so far have both ended 1-1.

Atletico Madrid vs FC Barcelona Predictions
Despite Barca’s improvement in their last match, we see Atletico as favourites to win this match. For perhaps the first time in a long time, Atletico have a better squad than Barça. Atletico are also talented defenders, and will focus on this in a matchup of this nature. Another key factor in Atletico’s favour is that the match is played at their home ground.
