Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona - La Liga, betting tips, odds and match preview

Saturday's Spanish La Liga action concludes with a blockbuster, heavyweight clash at the Wanda Metropolitano as Atletico Madrid and FC Barcelona battle it out for the top league spot.

This is the biggest match in the Spanish La Liga this weekend as Atletico Madrid welcome Barcelona to the Wanda Metropolitana in a match that could decide how the La Liga title race goes down.


Barcelona FC lost their last match at home to Real Betis and they will be looking to get back to form in this clash.

A win for Barcelona would see them keep their reputation as the team to beat, however, if they lose, Atletico would move 2 points ahead of them and make this one of the most open title races in recent history.

Atletico Madrid have become one of Spain’s biggest teams in recent seasons and they have achieved some great things, but they have not been able to beat Barcelona in a Spanish La Liga match.

Atletico Madrid have knocked the Catalans out of the UEFA Champions League twice and even won the Spanish La Liga crown by managing a draw in Camp Nou.

Atletico comes into this match with 4 wins from their last 5 matches so they should be confident that they can finally break that curse.

Barcelona are not on a run of bad form at the moment, however, the return of Lionel Messi in their last league match ended in a 2nd defeat of the season which won’t inspire the Barcelona players.

That 4-3 loss to Real Betis was a very open match as Real Betis are an equally attack-minded team, however, this match should be different as Atletico are a team that love to play tight football.

Atletico Madrid have to deal with a depleted defence as their 4 main defenders are struggling with injuries this season.

Atleti only managed a 3-2 win in their last match and that could see this match end with goals at both ends as well.

Atletico Madrid haven’t won any of their last 16 matches against Barcelona in the league, but they did record a 2-0 win over the Catalans in the UEFA Champions League in 2016.

Bookmakers believe Barcelona will get the job done at the Wanda Metropolitano this Saturday evening, however odds are close and Atletico de Madrid will have supporters based on their strong defence.

Lionel Messi is currently the bookies favourite to score the 1st goal while goal markets are undecided about the number of goals this match could produce.
