Barcelona

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Preview – La Liga 3rd December

It doesn’t get any better than an El Clásico showdown. It is Barcelona v Real Madrid for the first time this season and if the slump in form of the Catalans continue, Madrid could find themselves with a nine point lead at the top of the table going if they can take a win at the Nou Camp. Barcelona have drawn their last two league outings and were terrible last weekend in a 1-1 draw at Real Sociedad. Real Madrid have won their last six La Liga games on the bounce now and even though they will be missing Gareth Bale for this one, they are going to be strong. Can Barca haul themselves closer to Real Madrid or will their rivals stretch their already big lead?

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Tips

There is an odd start time for this one, 3:15 pm on Saturday which means that it clashes with English Premier League action. That’s a bit annoying. Anyway, this is one of the best games to look forward to on the continent and there is a big three points up for grabs. Barcelona will be under huge pressure to get a win on the board in this one at home. The Catalans have only lost three of their last 13 Clásicos at home in all competitions (W7 D3) but they did lose this corresponding fixture last season at the Nou Camp in the league. Barcelona’s form isn’t quite there at the moment with a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five games across all competitions. In La Liga they have drawn their last two and were shockingly bad against Real Sociedad last weekend in a 1-1 draw. The Catalans have now taken 27 points from their opening 13 league games and this is their worst start since the 2007/08 season.

Barcelona have found the back of the net in each of their last 21 games against Real Madrid and both teams to score in this one at Bet365 will return a price of 4/9. Lionel Messi is the Clásico’s top scorer with 21 goals to his name and he has been in good scoring form this season. He remains without a goal in any of his last five against Real Madrid though, but Messi is a price of 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one along with teammate Luis Suarez and Neymar is back a little at an 11/8 price. Neymar has been involved in five goals in his six Clásicos (three goals and two assists). Pressure is on boss Luis Enrique here and no Barcelona manager has ever lost two Clásicos in a row at home. The last seven Barcelona goals against Real Madrid at Camp Nou in all competitions have been scored by different players.

So Barca aren’t quite on top of their game at the moment, but Real Madrid are. They are topping the league and have won their last six games on the bounce in the top flight. They have remained unbeaten across their 13 league games this season with ten wins on the board. Out on the road they have won their last three on the bounce, scoring thirteen goals in the process. Cristiano Ronaldo has five goals in his last two league games and he has scored ten of Real Madrid’s last 16 goals at Camp Nou in all competitions. Ronaldo is a quote of 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market for this one. Ten of his 16 goals that Ronaldo has scored against Barcelona have come at the Nou Camp. They will be missing the injured Gareth Bale for this one. They will be opening up a huge nine point lead over Barcelona if they take the win in this one on Saturday.

Madrid have won five of the last nine against Barca across all competitions and a repeat of their 2-1 scoreline win from their last visit there will fetch a price of 12/1 with Bet365. Manager Zinedine Zidane has now put together a 25 match unbeaten streak in La Liga as Real Madrid boss (W22 D3) and they have averaged three goals per game in that sequence, with a goal scored in each and every one of those games. One thing that you often forget to look at when it comes to El Clásico is the defence. Real Madrid have shipped three fewer goals than Barcelona have done this season and it has to be said the Catalans are lacking a little bit of quality back there at the moment. Another cracking game is on the cards between the two of them and the three points up for grabs here are massive.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 5/6, Real Madrid 3/1, Draw 3/1

Barcelona v Real Madrid Predictions

A 3/1 price on Real Madrid to go to the Nou Camp, against a side they have done alright against recently, screams value. Barcelona’s form has been so patchy lately that it is going to be hard to trust them in this one and they aren’t a good price to get behind in the outright market. Their defence is vulnerable and the Real Madrid attack has been so sharp of late that the hosts are likely to get exposed. Nothing for Real Madrid to fear in this one and everything to gain. Look for an away win. Simple as that.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th November 2016

Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Betting Preview – La Liga 19th November

What a cracking game we have on Saturday evening from mainland Europe. It is is the Madrid derby in La Liga and there is naturally going to be no quarter given in this one. Real Madrid have the upper hand in the league standings going into this one, but Atletico can pull to within three points of them if they can land a home win at the Calderon against their bitter rivals. So a big game for Diego Simeone’s men and they do have the second best defence in the Spanish top flight (behind only Villarreal). Will it be able to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet as the league leaders come to visit? Games between these two are usually fascinating encounters full of drama. It’s well worth looking at for your football betting this weekend.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Betting Tips

Games across Europe don’t get much bigger than this one at all and Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid betting is usually tense and tight. These is rarely much between these two city rivals they go head to head and that has been proven over the last two season. There has been a remarkable tally of eleven meetings in the last two seasons between these two and it is Atletico Madrid who are leading the way in the head to head from that sequence. Atletico have gone W5 D5 L1 (90 minutes) in the last eleven Madrid derbies against Los Merengues. So you really can’t argue with that at all and suddenly it becomes clear why they are favourites to go and land the three points in this first meeting of the new term. Atletico have produced a W4 D1 record on home soil in La Liga this season and they have fired off 18 goals in those five games, having scored at least four goals in three of those five at home. Only Villarreal have conceded fewer goals than they have too.

So all around it makes good reading for them and under 2.5 goals on this one is a price of 5/6 with online betting site Bet365. Each of the last five games between the Madrid giants have gone under the goal line so there is a trend there. Two of the three clashes last season ended in a 1-1 draw and that is a 5/1 punt in the correct score market, while an Atletico 1-0 is a 15/2 option in the market. While Atletico do have the second best defensive record in the league, they have shipped at least one in each of their last four. But with them averaging 3.6 goals per game on home soil this season, they will give Real a run for their money. Antoine Griezmann is even money in the anytime goalscorer market, with Kevin Gameiro at 8/5. Griezmann has four goals in his last six against Real in the league. Yannick Carrasco too is a 12/5 price and he has six in his last four at home. So Atletico are unbeaten in six league games against their rivals and with them not having lost in their last 22 league home matches in La Liga (W18 D4) they are value to avoid defeat.

Since Zinedine Zidane took over at Real Madrid they have lost just the one league game (W25 D5 L1), but that was against Atletico Madrid. They are unbeaten this season in La Liga with a W8 D3 L0 record posted so far and they are on a four match winning streak, which snapped them nicely out of three drawn matches on the bounce. Barcelona are the only side in the league to have bettered them for the 31 goals that they have scored. There’s some serious scoring power in their ranks. Cristiano Ronaldo is 5/4 in the anytime goalscorer market to start with but he is a six match scoreless streak against Atletico Madrid. Gareth Bale is at 7/4 to net and the impressive Alvaro Morata has been going well too. Then there’s Karim Benzema at 8/5 and he has three in his last six against Atletico. Hard to fathom the low scoring Madrid derbies which have happened lately then.

Real Madrid have netted in each of their away games this season and they have returned in each of their last fifteen away games in La Liga. They have averaged 2.6 per game away from home in that sequence. But they haven’t taken a win at the Vicente Calderon in their last six attempts now but if one thing is in their favour, it is the fact that they have never gone seven in a row without a victory there across all competitions. So you have Atletico in top home form and Real in top away from. Los Merengues unbeaten in their last sixteen out on the road in the league (W12 D4) so will their superior firepower steer them to a rare three points at the Calderon? As mentioned, recent meetings between them have been pretty close and tense but both teams to score at Bet365 will return you a price of 7/10 on the derby clash. A draw may be enough to see Real hold top spot in the league this weekend, depending on what Barcelona do.

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Atlético Madrid 7/5, Real Madrid 21/10, Draw 9/4

Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid Predictions

You will probably have a contest there with little margins given on the day. Atletico have proven recently that they can handle the pressure of dealing with Real Madrid and they have the strong head to head form going. But a couple of slips recently has just raised questions about them, but they don’t often give up much at the Calderon. Real Madrid are going along well enough, but they would probably be happy with a point out of this one at the end of the day. Look for a draw in the match outright and a 1-1 correct score again has to offer some value on the match up.

Barcelona 10/1 enhanced odds to beat Real Madrid at Coral

Coral

Do league games get any bigger than Barcelona v Real Madrid? Probably not and the two heavyweight clash in a La Liga battle on Saturday evening. Barcelona are powering their way to the domestic title and start the game ten points clear of third placed Real Madrid. The Catalans have only lost one of their last seven at home against Real Madrid as well in the league, having won five of those seven.

So they have the form and they of course have what is an unstoppable forward line. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar have been destroying defences all season and when Real Madrid and Barcelona met at the Bernabeu earlier in the season, Barcelona rolled off a thrilling 4-0 away victory. The Catalans are on a 22 match unbeaten streak in the league (W20, D2) having scored in every game in that sequence.

Ronaldo - Messi

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Preview

Another el Clasico rolls around on Saturday evening in La Liga. This is probably more about Barcelona’s march to the league title than it is anything else. The Catalan powerhouses go into the weekend nine points clear at the top of the table, with Real Madrid a point further back still from them. Can Barcelona drive home their advantage in the title race at the Nou Camp on Saturday or will Real Madrid be able to keep their fading hopes of a title alive?

Barcelona v Real Madrid 2016

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Tips

So Barcelona start ten points clear of third placed Real Madrid in this La Liga battle, with Atletico Madrid sandwiching the pair in second place. Barcelona have the form against los Merengues to suggest that they are going to bank another win against them. They have lost only one of their last seven home games against Real Madrid, winning five of those seven. They have also beaten their rivals in four of their last six games across all competitions too (L2). Barcelona are on a long unbeaten stretch of form, having put together a 23 match unbeaten streak in the Spanish top flight. They have won twelve of their last thirteen played (D1). Earlier in the season they went to the Bernabeu and hammered Real Madrid 4-0, a brace from Luis Suarez coming in the game.

In the anytime goalscorer market, Suarez and Lionel Messi are both 4/6 options for the game, with Neymar at 8/11. Yes, their some attacking power there and Luis Suarez is the top scorer for the club in the league this season with 26 goals. Messi has 22 and Neymar 21. Lionel Messi has netted in each of his last six home games in all competitions (eight goals in total). Barcelona’s home record in the top flight this season reads W14 D1 L0 and they have actually now gone 22 league games in a row at the Nou Camp without having suffered a defeat (W20, D2) and they have scored in each of those games as well. Interestingly though Barcelona have never beaten Real Madrid when they have been leading La Liga and have been 10 or more points ahead of the Whites (D1 L2).

So Real Madrid really have to roll out a win in this one to keep their faint title hopes alive. They have put together a four match winning streak in La Liga heading into this one and have scored sixteen goal in those four games, a good response to a home loss against Atletico Madrid at the end of February. That is actually their best sequence of league form under Zinedine Zidane. After a slow start to the season, Cristiano Ronaldo has come to life for them and has racked up a tally of 28 league goals this season and he is an 11/10 anytime goalscorer option for the game. Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last seven away games. With seventeen of the last eighteen meetings between them (all competitions) having gone over 2.5 goals, you can back this one to go the same way at 4/5 for over 3.5 goals and both teams to score is a short priced 2/5 option.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Betting Odds

Barcelona 4/7, Draw 7/2, Real Madrid 9/2

Barcelona v Real Madrid Predictions

Barcelona have been powering along this season but Real Madrid have just come back into some nice form of their own. The Catalans let slip a 2-0 lead against Villarreal last time out to finish in a 2-2 draw and they haven’t kept many clean sheets this year, so will get tested by Real Madrid. However, Barcelona should have the edge at home, both teams to score and a home win.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds 27th February 2016

European Football

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Betting Preview

It’s a huge Madrid derby on the weekend, which shouldn’t go unnoticed. This is another massively important game between the two of them as it is a battle for second spot behind Barcelona in La Liga. Neither are likely to end up catch the Catalans in the league title race, but there is big bragging rights up for grabs here. Atletico, thanks to a brilliant defence this season go into the huge derby match with a one point advantage over their rivals. Will that be intact at the end of the game?

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips

Real Madrid dropped a couple of points in the La Liga title race last time out with a draw at Malaga. However, they are in immense form back at home having won their last seven league games there. They have scored at least three goals in each of those seven and have hit four or more in six of those seven games at the Bernabeu. That’s scoring form not to be messed with. Cristiano Ronaldo is running at a price of 5/6 in the anytime goalscorer market with Karim Benzema at 5/4. Ronaldo has failed to score against Atletico in his last four appearances against them, but Benzema was on target in a 1-1 draw earlier in the season.

So with an average of over 5 goals a game at home in their last seven, can Real break one of the best defences in Europe? It is five games in a row now in La Liga without a win for Real Madrid over Atletico but they do actually have a great home record with 17 wins in their last 19 Madrid derby matches. They are the joint-top scorers across all 5 top European league this season with a 71 goal haul. At the Bernabeu this season they have posted a highly impressive W11 D1 L1 record, the only loss suffered coming against Barcelona.

Atletico start one point ahead of Real so everything is up for grabs here. They can boast one of the best defences around and they have conceded only 11 goals in La Liga all season (four of those against Barcelona over two matches). They haven’t been far off the top of the league all season but have gone W2 D2 L1 over their last five (the defeat coming against Barcelona), which isn’t bad, but nothing compared to the massive W9 D0 L1 record they put in their ten games prior to that.

Atletico Madrid have lost only four league matches all season and two of those were against Barcelona. Realistically you are looking under 2.5 goals for a price of 4/5 for this one because not only have the last three in all competitions between these gone under the mark, Atletico simply don’t concede many at all. On top of that, Diego Simeone’s side have gone 16 Madrid derbies without a defeat in La Liga (W13 D3), failing to score in just one of them (0-0 at Vallecas in August 2014). Antoine Griezmann is on a five match scoreless streak in the league, but is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option.

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Betting Odds

Real Madrid 4/5, Draw 13/5, Atletico Madrid 15/4

Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid Predictions

A heavyweight attack taking on a heavyweight defence. Which will win out on the day? It’s a real poser of a question and it may be worth just splitting it with a draw. Atletico haven’t lost in their last five league matches against Real and actually took a win at the Bernabeu in last season’s League contest. Back Simeone’s defence to get a point.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid Predictions & Betting Odds 30th January 2016

Barcelona

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.

Real Madrid v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds 21st November 2015

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.

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.

Real Madrid v Barcelona Free Bet if Ronaldo scores anytime

Free Bets & Promotions

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.

Atletico Madrid v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds 12th September 2015

European Football

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 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.
