Football – Spain – La Liga Betting tips

The marquee fixture in this weekend’s Spanish La Liga is undoubtedly the clash between third placed Atletico Madrid and La Liga leaders, Barcelona as the betting tips continue this Saturday evening.

Atletico Madrid have suffered just one defeat so far this season which was an unexpected 2-0 loss away at Celta Vigo but since then, Diego Simeone’s side have embarked upon a solid and impressive run of nine league matches without defeat.

This run of form have helped lift Saturday evening’s hosts up into third spot and just one point behind Barcelona, so this match takes on even more importance at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Atletico’s home record stands at an excellent  5-1-0  11/3 where they’ve won their last four on the trot with victories against Huesca, Real Betis, Real Sociedad and Athletic Bilbao while also keeping four clean sheets to date on home turf.

French striker Griezmann (3 goals) leads the way in these early stages of the season for the hosts.

Barcelona come into this clash having failed to win either of their last two matches as they drew 1-1 away at Inter Milan in the Champions League (not a bad result though), but then suffered an inexplicable 4-3 loss at home to Real Betis last time out in La Liga.

The visitors now face two tough looking away fixtures at Atletico Madrid in Saturday night’s top three clash followed by a trip to Holland to face PSV in the Champions League. Prior to their defeat to Real Betis, they’d strung together a three-match winning sequence against Sevilla, arch-rivals Real Madrid and an away win at Rayo Vallecano.

Barcelona hold a slightly disappointing away record of  3-1-1  8/6 which includes a 2-1 defeat at Leganes and two points dropped at Valencia in a 1-1 draw, so there’s no guarantees of taking all three points in Madrid this weekend either.

Both sides have Champions League matches during next week and my betting tips suggest this tussle could well end in stalemate.
