Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview

How do you keep Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez quiet? Great question and maybe Atletico Madrid’s stellar defence has the answer. Saturday brings around a top two clash in La Liga as Barca host Atletico in a scrap for surface, both sides sitting on 48 points. But if there’s one defence in Europe that can stop Barcelona’s power attack it is Atletico’s which has conceded just eight league goals all season. San Diego Simeone’s men avoid defeat at the Nou Camp or will the home side find a way to break them?

Unibet have a great promotion running which applies to La Liga matches (as well as Premier League and UEFA Champions League matches). They will refund losing correct score, half time/full time and last goalscorer bets on a match if there is a goal scored after the 90th minute in it. The maximum refund in the offer is £50. Register an account with online betting site Unibet and you will get a risk free £20 bet to kick things off there with them.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

This one should grab attention amidst all the FA Cup matches going off in England. This is a scrap at the top of La Liga, with both level on points, but Barcelona holding a game in hand over Atletico. So that means the visitors are really going to need to put a win on the board to get a big boost in the title race. Barcelona also have a far superior goal difference too. Barcelona have gone unbeaten in their last eleven league games against Atletico though and have won nine of those eleven. That’s impressive and they are also unbeaten in their last nine at the Nou Camp against Atletico too (W7 D2). What’s more impressive is in that stretch of nine home games, Barcelona have averaged 3.44 goals per game against Atletico Madrid.

They have also averaged 3.44 goals per game in their last 18 home matches in La Liga, a run of unbeaten form at the Nou Camp in the Spanish top flight. It’s easy to win games when you have Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez in your starting lineup and between them they have scored Barcelona’s last six league goals. Messi is 4/5 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market with Luis Suarez and Neymar at 5/4. Lionel Messi has scored in each of his last three league games (five goals), his best run of the season. This is the second league meeting of the season between the two clubs, with Barca taking a 2-1 win at the Vicente Calderon back in September, with Messi scoring the winner.

So Barcelona have an incredible attack, but Atletico Madrid are basing all their success off of a great defence. They have been incredible at the back shipping only the eight league goals from their 21 matches played in La Liga. They have gone unbeaten in their last five league games (W4 D1) and haven’t conceded in any of those. So they are going along nicely and Diego Simeone’s men have lost just the one of their last fifteen league matches (W11 D3 L1). So they are equally as impressive in their own right. Antoine Griezmann has netted 12 league goals this term for them and is 5/2 to net on Saturday.

Atletico have been level at 0-0 at the break in each of their last six league matches and you can back this one to be the same in a 0-0 half time score for a price of 2/1 with Unibet for this one. They are pretty decent road side having won their last three away from home in the league and they haven’t conceded in their last three away games either. You have to go back to 2013 for the last time that they earned four clean sheets in a row away from home though. This is the ultimate test for their defence, one of the best in Europe. They need the three points though so can’t just try and constrain for the ninety minutes.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 1/2, Draw 3/1, Atletico Madrid 6/1

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Predictions

Barcelona have the head to head form,they have the goals and form to find a way through Atletico’s tough defence. Barcelona are looking for their sixth straight win over Atletico in all competitions and with the goalscoring power that they possess, you have to back their offense over the visitors’ defence. Home win and look over 2.5 goals.

Ronaldo - Neymar (Real Madrid v Barcelona)

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Preview

The action from the Bernabeu could well be the highlight of the sporting weekend. The two are scrapping it out for supremacy once again at the head of La Liga and it is Barcelona who go into the game with a three point advantage over their rivals. Will the Catalans be able to extend their lead or will they be hauled back by Los Merengues? After his injury issues, Lionel Messi may even be back in action for the mouthwatering El Clasico action.

This La Liga action qualifies for Bet365’s 100% Euro Soccer Bonus offer, where you can earn win bonuses on successful accas. This offer applies to winning returns on pre-match accumulators of 3 or more selections on Full Time Result or Result/Both Teams To Score markets for the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League. Register an account with Bet365 and earn a 100% matched deposit bonus too.

El Clasico 2015 Infographic

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips

Hopefully this will be a treat for fans and punters alike. The last nine clásicos in La Liga have seen both sides score, the longest such run since 1946-1952 (13 games in a row). You can back both teams to score in this one for a price of 1/2 with online betting site Bet365. Real Madrid are currently running on a 22 match unbeaten streak in La Liga, winning nineteen of those. They have only shipped the one goal in their last five there as well, so a pretty powerful home side. They did suffer a 3-2 loss at Sevilla in their last league match on the road just before the international break though. Prior to those three goals conceded, they had conceded just four in ten.

Real Madrid have only won two of their last seven La Liga home games against Barcelona (D1 L4) though so not an immediate banker. They have only won three of their last 12 home fixtures against the Catalans in all competitions as well. Real Madrid boss Rafa Benítez has lost six of his 10 games as manager in La Liga against Barcelona (W3 D1). Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t particularly on fire this season, not by his high standards and of our teams to have fired in the most shots on target in La Liga this season (Real Madrid, Barça, Celta and Sevilla), Madrid are the side with the worst conversion ratio (13.8%). Ronaldo, who has eight league goals this season, is an 8/11 anytime goalscorer option.

So there is a chance that Lionel Messi will be back for Barcelona. He has been involved in eight of the last nine Barcelona goals against Real Madrid at Bernabéu in all competitions (five goals, three assists). If Messi scores in this game, he would become “El Clásico” top scorer in La Liga (he currently has 14 goals, level with Di Stéfano). Messi is an even money price to hit the back of the net on Saturday. Although the last 17 Barcelona goals have been scored by either Neymar (nine) or Luis Suárez (eight) and they are both even money anytime goalscorers as well.

Neymar has been involved in 16 of the last 19 Barcelona goals in all competitions (10 goals, six assists). He’s having a massive season for the Catalans. Barcelona have lost two of their last three La Liga away games (W1) but they have scored in each of their last 15 La Liga away games and not only that, they have averaged 2.7 goals per game on the road in that sequence. Huge game and each of the last seven meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals. This one is likely to go the same way.

Real Madrid v Barcelona Betting Odds

Real Madrid 6/4, Barcelona 7/4, Draw 13/5

Real Madrid v Barcelona Predictions

Tough game to call and hopefully the goals will be flying around left, right and centre. Neither side have really been at their very best, not by their own standards but they are still a class above most others. Real Madrid have struggled for wins on home soil against the Catalans, but given their defence it may be worth swinging for a draw in this one.

The big El Clasico from La Liga is on Saturday night and it should be one of the highlights of the weekend. Real Madrid go off at home against Barcelona and Los Merengues will be on the hunt for three points which will draw them level on points with their rivals at the top of the table.

Barcelona, even without Lionel Messi around, have charged to the top of the table, benefitting from big inputs from Luis Suarez and Neymar in front of goal, while Real Madrid have looked to Cristiano Ronaldo once more to fire them along in their hunt for silverware. Madrid are unbeaten at home under Rafa Benitez this season, but they will be tested by Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo has only netted eight league goals this term, not a high return by his standards, and five of those goals came in one match. So he isn’t having the best of season, but usually when the big games come, Ronaldo is there front and centre.

You will get money back as a free bet on selected markets with Boylesports if Cristiano Ronaldo scores at anytime in the El Clasico.

Madrid go in the match at a 29/20 with Boylesports for the three points, with the Draw at 12/5 and Barcelona at 13/8. This money back special offer from Boylesports applies to pre-match bets only and it covers the first goalscorer, last goalscorer and anytime goalscorer market. The maximum refund of a free bet is £25 per customer.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Preview

The first high profile clash of the new La Liga season and with both Atletico and Barcelona having banked wins in their opening two matches it’s a great battle for supremacy as well. The mighty Catalans haven’t been at their devastating best so far this term, so can Atletico battle their way to a home three points against the title favourites?

Barcelona are part of Paddy Power’s enhanced odds offer this weekend. Open a new account with the bookmaker to gain access to a 28/1 enhanced odds offer to see Arsenal, Man City, Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid all win their weekend matches. There is also insurance on the offer because if the bet loses then you will be given your stake back as a free bet. The maximum stake is £10.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Tips

Atletico have opened with wins over Sevilla and Las Palmas and both of those were clean sheet victories as well. So the solid defence is well in place and with Barcelona not having hit their impressive attacking heights yet it could push the game under 2.5 goals which is a price of 4/6 at Paddy Power. Atletico are are winless in 10 against Barcelona (D2 L8); their longest drought in top-flight history and even beating Barcelona when they aren’t playing well is a tough thing to ask of any team.

Atletico boss Diego Simeone has never beaten Barcelona as a La Liga manager (D2 L5)  and Los Colchoneros have have conceded more goals to Barca than any other opponent in their top-flight history (307). Since Diego Simeone took charge, Atletico have not lost any of their opening three games of a La Liga season and you know that they will be setting up defensively so could actually be a decent punt to pick up a draw. Atletico have scored a league-high three goals from outside the area this term and running in the anytime goalscorer market Antoine Griezmann is a 7/4 option for the home side.

Barcelona have only managed two goals in two games this season, which is their worst goal tally at this stage since 2008/09. They haven’t impressed yet with 1-0 wins over Athletic Bilbao and Malaga, where defender Thomas Vermaelen came to their rescue with a winner. Luis Suarez scored their other goal of the season and is a 6/4 anytime goalscorer quote behind outright favourite Lionel Messi. Lionel Messi has participated in his side’s last three La Liga goals against Atleti (two goals, one assist).

Barcelona are on a 16 match unbeaten run in the league, having won fourteen of those and they found the back of the net in each of those games in that sequence. On the road Barcelona are unbeaten in 11 (W10 D1), keeping eight clean sheets in the process. They just haven’t been flowing all that well so far this season and have needed 8.5 shots on target to score on average this season in La Liga, Atletico just 2.5, so can Messi and co find their groove and put a big three points on the board?

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Betting Odds

Barcelona 13/10, Atletico Madrid 23/10, Darw 11/5

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Predictions

Great looking game although it looks as if it will be a low scoring war of attrition. Barcelona did win all four meetings against Atleti last season and two of those wins were by a 1-0 scoreline. To their credit they have been playing poorly and still getting wins, but they could be frustrated to a draw by the home side.

Bet365’s Top Goalscorer market for the new La Liga season (which stars on Friday night) includes just the five players. That’s it, that’s the sum of everything. The fact of the matter though is that it is not unrealistic that it will be anyone other than one of the five listed players who walk away with the crown of being the top goalscorer this season. Of course, heading up the market there is the familiar site of a Lionel Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo duel going on.

There has been nothing that the bookmaker can produce to split up Messi and Ronaldo this season, both are being offered at an even money quote to top the goalscoring charts this season. The other names really in the mix are Luis Suarez, Neymar and Karim Benzema. But realistically then you can trim Benzema out of the picture as he’s not prolific enough and may yet end up at Arsenal, while Suarez and Neymar, as good as they are will still likely play second fiddle to the Messi and Ronaldo shows.

So it probably will all boil down to a two horse race again, highlighted by the fact that Suarez is 20/1 third favourite to top the La Liga goalscoring charts while Neymar is a 25/1 poke. Adding further weight to it being either Ronaldo or Messi who gets the title, one of them has won the La Liga golden boot in each of the last six seasons. No-one is likely to come along at the moment and break that kind of dominance.

Ronaldo is looking to win it for the third season on the bounce. It was again staggering numbers from both of them last season, Ronaldo banging in 48 goals across the season while Messi chipped in with 43. Just to put into context just how many goals they individually produced, of all the teams which finished 13th and lower in last season’s La Liga, none of them scored as many goals as a club as Lionel Messi alone did. Cristiano Ronaldo scored more goals on his own than fourteen of the other La Liga clubs managed to tally for themselves across the season.

You are talking about phenomenal numbers here. Luis Suarez really looks like the only one in the league who could realistically push them. He finished with a bang last season with nine goals in nine games and netted 16 in total across his 27 league appearances after missing the first two months of the term. As for Neymar, he netted 22 goals in 33 league appearances, but still, stand that up against the returns of Messi and Ronaldo and you are nowhere close.

In the La Liga outright winner market, reigning champions Barcelona are trading at 8/13, with Real Madrid at 7/4. As in the La Liga Top Goalscorer market, it is a two horse race, with Atletico Madrid the nearest contenders at a 16/1 quote with Bet365.

Online betting site Bet365 run a great Euro Acca Win Bonus offer which can pay dividends for punters. Place yourself a threefold acca with them on select leagues (including the Premier League and La Liga) and if your bet wins then you will be paid out up to a 100% win bonus. The size of the bonus coming your way will depend on how many winning selections are in your wager. The offer applies to the Full-Time Result or Result/Both Teams To Score markets for the Premier League, Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga 1 or Champions League.

Ronaldo - Messi

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Preview

Real Madrid’s dip in form recently has handed supremacy and perhaps favouritism over to Barcelona in the race to become Spanish champions this season. But this is a big opportunity for Real Madrid to hit back and take over at the top of La Liga again, as they trail their hosts by just the one point in a tight title race. Defeat would leave Carlo Ancelotti’s men facing an uphill struggle to get their hands on the domestic crown.

Build yourself a winning threefold or bigger acca with online betting site Bet365 from across Europe’s top competitions, and you can earn up to a 100% bonus on top of your bet’s winnings! This superb offer adds tremendous value to your football accumulator betting and new customers registering an account with them can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Tips

Brilliant match to warm up Sunday evening. Real Madrid are on a two match winning streak in Clasico’s having beaten their rivals in last season’s Copa Del Rey and then again in this season’s La Liga meeting at the Bernabeu. However, it is Barcelona who are running as strong favourites, even though they have already lost two home matches this season. You have to go back to the 2007/08 season to find the last time that they lost three home matches in a single season though. But with a one point lead at the top of the table over Real Madrid, big opportunity to Barcelona stamp their authority on the title race. They are in form, winning nine of their last 10 La Liga outings (L1 – a home defeat against Malaga).

A record breaking 21 El Clasico goals Lionel Messi has scored during his immense career. He has scored eight of Barcelona’s last sixteen goals against Real Madrid too and is up as a quote of 3/1 in the First Goalscorer market at online bookmaker Bet365. Barcelona have the best attack (78 goals scored) and defence (16 conceded) in La Liga this season and only once have they conceded more than two goals in a game (their league defeat against Real earlier in the season). You throw in Luis Suarez and Neymar alongside Messi and you see why they have been so prolific. They have scored 14 goals in their last four home matches in La Liga, and 77% of their games at the Nou Camp have gone over 2.5 goals. The last six El Clasico meetings have done so too.

Real Madrid’s form in the title race suffered a setback recently having been held to a draw against Villarreal and then a loss at Athletic Bilbao. Gareth Bale answered his critics with a brace in a 2-0 win for them over Levante in their last league outing though, but they aren’t in great shape on the road. They have lost two of their last three away games, failing to find the back of the net in both of those defeats. They have put up a W10 D0 L4 record on the road in La Liga this season, and have a W3 L3 record in their last six road games. Only once in the last 30 years have they managed to do the league double over Barcelona too.

You may want to sit down to read this stat, but Cristiano Ronaldo has scored just the two league goals in Real Madrid’s last nine games. He is a man who has been struggling for form, so too Bale, by and large. Bale is a 9/5 quote in the anytime goalscorer market, with Ronaldo, who scored from the penalty spot against Barcelona earlier in the season, at 5/4. Real have been shaky lately and just scraped through their Champions League second leg at home against Schalke, winning out 4-3. They can’t look to the boss for great inspiration either in big clashes, as Carlo Ancelotti has lost five of his seven league clashes with either Atletico Madrid or Barcelona since taking charge of Real Madrid (W1 D1).

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 8/13, Draw 10/3, Real MAdrid 15/4

Barcelona v Real Madrid Predictions

Who are the more fluent and confident side at the moment? Barcelona. Three points here would see them take a firm grip of things at the top of La Liga and you would expect it to come. Real Madrid are just looking a bit shaken up at the moment for some reason, and would bank on Barcelona to capitalize on that in a high scoring game over 2.5 goals.

European Football

It is a big weekend of football derby action across Europe, with not only the North London derby of Tottenham v Arsenal going off at White Hart Lane on Saturday, and the Sporting v Benfica derby in Portugal, there is a huge Madrid derby to enjoy some top football betting on as well. Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid betting brings forth a huge clash in the title race in the Spanish top flight this season, with Atletico hoping to close up on the gap to leaders Real.

This will be the sixth meeting between the Spanish rivals this season already, having gone up against each other in both the Spanish Super Cup and the Copa del Rey. Atletico, to huge credit, have come away unscathed in those meetings, winning three and drawing two of them. Diego Simeone’s men have won both of their games at home against Real this season, winning both games with a clean sheet in tow.

So the defensive might of Atletico has been in play again this season and they are in a three way tie at the top of the table as the defending championship duel with Barcelona and Madrid for this year’s domestic league crown. The two away meetings at the Vicente Calderon that Real Madrid have taken, have both gone under 2.5 goals, thanks to Atletico defence seeming to have had the handle on their neighbours’ impressive attack.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid under 2.5 goals is an option at 4/5 with online betting site Bet365, and still, deposite their dominance over the Bernabeu outfit this season, Atletico are still going as underdogs for the win, priced up at 23/10 with Bet365 to take another home victory against the Merengues. There was a 2-2 draw between them in the corresponding fixture last season, with Real needing a late equaliser to pick up a point.

Real Madrid 6/5 favourites in Madrid Derby

There will be an embarrassment of riches on display in the goalscorer markets again, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema being joined by the power of Atletico’s attack which comprises of Mario Mandzukic, Antoine Griezmann and local hero Fernando Torres who scored a brace against Real at the Bernabeu in the second leg of their Copa del Rey clash, netting a goal inside the first minute of each half in a 2-2 draw.

Huge talent, huge points and huge bragging points at stake when the two meet at the Vicente Calderon on Saturday, February 7th. Atletico have posted a tremendous W9 D1 L1 record on home soil in the Spanish top flight this season, their only defeat there coming against Villarreal back in mid December. Their defence hasn’t been as watertight as last season, so backing both teams to score at a price of 8/11 will be an attractive option.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid have been in impressive form on the road (as they have been at home too) posting a W9 D0 L2 on their travels in the Spanish top flight this season. They have averaged a massive 3.36 goals per game on the road, having shipped at a rate of exactly one per game on the road. Real are 6/5 favourites for the victory at Bet365.

It should be another intriguing, fascinating match up between the two, in one of Europe’s top fixtures. Online betting site Bet365 have a wonderful welcome bonus on offer for next customers. Register an account with them and the bookmaker will match the value of your first deposit with a free bet to enjoy. The maximum bonus through this great new customers promotion is a massive £200 bet.

Messi - Neymar (Barcelona)

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview

A dip into La Liga sees a tremendous Barcelona v Atletico Madrid betting clash on Sunday. Both are level on points in second and third in La Liga respectively and therefore both just one point off leaders Real Madrid. So huge points at stake in this one in the title race. Will Barcelona be able to do something they failed to do in six attempts last season, that is beat Atletico?

It is #PPJUICYJANUARY at online bookmaker Paddy Power who have a massive enhanced odds promotion running for Sunday. In a boost to cumulative odds of 14/1 in the offer, you can back Arsenal, Manchester United and Barcelona to win the respective fixtures on the weekend and land yourself a huge payout with Paddy Power in this enhanced odds offer. See here for full details.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Barcelona will be looking for a league bounce back after they lost to David Moyes’ Real Sociedad last weekend. They came under fire too for not having started Lionel Messi in the game (sparking rumours of him leaving), but Barcelona hit their stride again during midweek when they beat Elche 5-0 in the Copa del Rey, Messi netting one from the spot. Worth having a punt on Messi to score, as only against Sevilla (18) has he scored more goals than he has against Atletico Madrid (17) and he is even money in the anytime goalscorer market, joint favorite with Luis Suarez.

Suarez still only has one league goal to his name for Barcelona, with Messi (15) and Neymar (11) carrying the can for them. Barcelona also have Neymar and El Haddadi trading strong at 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Catalans haven’t lost any of their last eight La Liga match ups against Atletico (W6 D2) but couldn’t get the better of them last season. Barcelona of course have massive strengths at home, and have put up a W7 D0 L1 record there, winning their each of their last three in a row at the Nou Camp, having scored exactly five goals in each.

This fixture has a history of goals in it, because the last fifteen meetings in La Liga between the two have returned a whopping 63 goals at an average of 4.2 per game. Over 2.5 goals is 4/5 quote at online betting site Paddy Power for Sunday’s clash. The Red-and-Whites went six matches unbeaten against Barcelona last season in all competitions (W1 D5), winning the league title with a draw at the Nou Camp, and they knocked them out of the Champions League. So does that make them value for at least a point on Sunday? Atletico are strong defensively, and can boast their own strengths going forward, even with fernando Torres back with them.

Mario Mandzukic and Antoine Griezmann are solid options in he anytime goalscorer market, with Frenchman Griezmann being bang in form having scored five goals in Athleticos last two league matches. Atletico have conceded at a rate of under one goal per game on the road, and have won their last two away from home in the Spanish top fight, part of an overall W5 D1 L2 away record this term. They have enough to frustrate Barcelona again, and won’t be short on confidence after beating rivals Real Madrid in the first leg of their Copa del Rey clash during the week.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 4/7, Draw 10/3, Atletico Madrid 9/2

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Predictions

Tempting to go for a draw, because Atletico have proven that they are no pushovers, and Barcelona couldn’t crack them last term. However, Barcelona are strong at home, and are still worth having a punt on to come away with the three points. Overall, they have the recent home form against the Red and Whites to deliver the goods.
