Barcelona – Atletico, La Liga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BARCELONA - ATLETICO
Barcelona managed to get a draw in the visit to Villarreal during the week, which was a great achievement from this point of view, that even in matches that do not matter very much what the outcome would be, because Barca convincingly is leading in the standings, they show a huge character. They scored two quick goals at the end of the game with yellow submarine. Of course, the presence of genius Messi’s was decisive, and then Suarez scored at the end with a clinical shot.
Atlético are in good shape and have broken their rivals in their last two games, who were not very easy. In the last round they beat 4-0 as guest Alaves as they dealt with Girona 2-0 home during the week. For the Los Colchoneros, only the victory works, so they are obliged to look for it. Simeone will have to risk and at some point and play a lot more attacking or just try to take advantage of set piece or other problematic zone in the Barcelona team.
Surely Atletico does not go out to be doomed in this game. They have chances, because Barcelona will also think of a very important match at Old Trafford against Manchester United during the week. Barcelona will surely score a goal, because at Camp Nou has no one to stop them from this, but we expect Atletico to score, too, because there are opportunities and qualities in the attack. Madrid has only one goal by the end of the season and it is the best possible place in the standings, and if somehow they manage to defeat Barca, at least it will be a huge achievement. Prediction – BTTS at 1.77.
- 9 of the last 11 matches of the two teams ended with BTTS
- Barca have just one clean sheet in the last 5 games
