Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Atletico Madrid had a week to forget after only managing a goalless draw with Leganes. Coming on the back of a defeat against Chelsea in the Champions League, Atletico Madrid found Leganes goalkeeper Pichu Cuellar in decent form. Both clubs had decent set of chances in front of goal but were unable to score the decisive breakthrough. Barcelona played behind closed doors at the Camp Nou and were able to get a 3-0 win over Las Palmas. Sergio Busquets scored from a corner to provide the game’s opening goal just after half-time, while Lionel Messi continued his impressive form with a brace.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This huge clash sees Barcelona looking to continue their recent run of form over Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone saw his team get a win over Barcelona back in April 2016. Since then, his team have only picked up two draws from four matches. The immense start to the season from the Catalan club sees them as the only club with a 100% record this season. Due to their recent record over Atletico, I would go with a victory for Barcelona. Lionel Messi has failed to score just once in the last six league appearances against Atletico Madrid. He has been in outstanding form this season after scoring 11 goals in just seven league matches. I see amazing value in placing money on Messi to score anytime in the game.

Barcelona win – 8/5

Lionel Messi to score anytime – 20/21

Atletico Madrid saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Atletico Madrid Preview

Atletico Madrid are struggling with consistency in the first few weeks of this La Liga 2017-18 campaign. Even though the team has had wins over the likes of Sevilla, draws against lower ranking teams like Leganes and Malaga have hurt the club. This would ideally be seen as a season where Atletico have a stronger chance of finishing above Real Madrid, but so far the chance has not been utilised. Diego Simeone’s team have been able to open up just a single point advantage over Madrid so far this season.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Filipe Luis is doubtful for the game with a hamstring injury, while Sime Vrsaljko (thigh) is certainly ruled out of the game.

Barcelona Preview

The Barcelona team was able to put behind any controversy surrounding the Catalonia region to secure an impressive win over Las Palmas in the recent game. The form of Lionel Messi has been a huge positive factor for the club, as Ernesto Valverde has had an extended honeymoon period at the club. The former Athletic Bilbao manager would not have expected his regime at Barcelona to start with such a strong performance straightaway. Barcelona have been the top scorers in the La Liga 2017-18 season already with 23 goals and they have opened up a seven-point advantage over champions Real Madrid. Lionel Messi is the leading scorer in the league and at the club with 11 for the season.

Barcelona Team News

Luis Suarez is rated as doubtful with a knee injury. Meanwhile, Rafinha (meniscus), Andres Iniesta (hamstring), and Ousmane Dembele (hamstring) will certainly be unavailable for the game.
