Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid: Predictions and Betting Tips
Barcelona comes into this match in third place and after a hard-fought win in their last match, against Valencia, in which they won 2-3.
In the first leg, Barça lost 0-1, so in case they finish with the same points as Atletico at the end of the season in the first position, they need to win this match at least by 1-0.
Barça is the third best home team at the moment, they have only lost two games at Camp Nou in 17 matches, although the last defeat was just last week against Granada, 1-2.
After being up to 12 points ahead of their direct followers at one point in the season, it would be unbelievable if Atletico ended up losing this league title.
The reality is that Atleti has lost the steadiness and efficiency they had at the beginning of the season. Without going too far, on the last matchday, against Elche, they almost tied the game in the last minute, but they were lucky that the Elche player missed the penalty.
Atletico is the third best away team so far in La Liga, with only three defeats in 17 matches.
- Two losses and three wins for Barça in their last five games
- Barça has conceded at least one goal in all of their last five matches
- Only one win for Atletico in their last five away game
- Atletico has only conceded three goals in their last five games
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Predictions
We think that there will be a clear dynamic to the match: Barça will have almost all the possession and Atletico will be stuck in their area and waiting for Barça’s mistake to counter-attack. In short, we think the game could end in a draw as neither side will want to risk too much while there are still games left to play.
We don’t think there are going to be many goals. Atletico is probably the toughest defense in Europe’s top leagues, and in terms of goals they are not a team that wins games by a large margin. As for Barça, against a defense like Atletico’s we think it’s difficult for them to score.
