Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Betting Odds
Barcelona to win
Barcelona has home advantage and will be hungry to win this game in order to leapfrog Atleti into third on the La Liga log. A win in this game will also significantly improve the confidence of Xavi’s side as they look to defend the La Liga crown that they won last season.
La Blaugrana heads into this game on the back of a 1-1 draw with Rayo Vallecano. Their recent form has been good. Prior to the draw with Rayo, they recorded 1-0 wins over Alaves and Real Sociedad.
Barcelona’s recent record against Atleti has been good as they have won their last two games against them both 1-0.
Bet on both teams to not score
Both teams will approach this game with a conservative mindset and play a cautious brand of football. There will be little margin for error from both teams. Chances for both teams will be few and far between as the ball will largely be contained to midfield.
Statistically, the recent meetings between the teams have not been high-scoring affairs as Barcelona won both games 1-0. There is a good chance that only one team will score in this game. Five out of the last six games between the teams have also only featured one team scoring.
Bet on the game to end 1-0
Barcelona have won their last two games 1-0. In addition to this, their games in recent times have been mostly very low-scoring. Their last nine games in all competitions have not featured them scoring more than twice in a game.
La Blaugana have also scored only one goal in six out of their last nine games. If recent history is to go by, they will gain a goal in this game and then play a very defensive brand of football. This is likely to be a very physical game and they will look to defend their lead once they have it and close out the game.
