Even though Atletico Madrid lost 0 – 1 to Barcelona during their last La Liga encounter, Barcelona have drawn their last game against a very weak side Espanyol (last place in La Liga). Barcelona have been going down hill after their victory against Atletico Madrid as they only manage to win 2 of their last 5 games both domestically and internationally. Barcelona are still the favorites here but we predict an underdog upset story of Atletico Madrid winning this encounter with narrow margins.

  • Atletico Madrid to Win -0.50@-0.98
  • Under 2.00@1.00


Other Reasons:

  • Barcelona saws a drop of form
  • Recent past encounters only shows either side grabbing narrow wins (fewer than 2.5 goals)
  • Atletico Madrid are in good form, 4 wins and 1 draw in their last 5 games
  • Diego Simeone have helped Atletico Madrid won La Liga 2014 title
  • Marc-André ter Stegen (Barca keeper) still out due to injury

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Head-to-head

  • Their last clash witnessed Barcelona post a 1-0 win.
  • Both teams have found the back of the net together in just two of their past five meetings.
  • All of their previous five encounters have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
  • The final scores have been tied twice in their last five games.
  • Atletico Madrid have registered the win just once in their past ten match-ups. (W-1, D-4, L-5)

Barcelona have been hit by a sharp decline in form and have picked up a win just once in their past four games. Their last clash on the road saw them share the spoils with Espanyol in a 2-2 draw. Even with their 4-1 win over Alaves, we still believe Barca are not at their best and might not match what Atletico Madrid has to offer.

Atletico Madrid on the other hand are on a four-game winning run in all competitions, managing to score a consistent 2 goals during these games. With Diego Simeone as their head coach, they have proven time to time they are a powerful force.
