Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting tips and predictions for the La Liga clash on Saturday 14th October at 7:45pm. Read today’s betting preview for the match below.
The La Liga schedule throws up a cracker to ease us back in after the International Break as Barcelona travel to the capital to face Atletico. Due to logistical reasons, Barcelona won’t have any travelling fans as the all singing-all dancing Wanda Metropolitano making it their second successive games without their supporters cheering them on. The hosts are unbeaten here in the league but suffered their first reverse at the hands of Chelsea in the Champions League. They will need to bounce back from the disappointment of failing to score at Leganes at the end of September. It’s been going swimmingly for Ernesto Valverde at the Nou Camp as his side remain unbeaten this season winning seven on the bounce. We’re starting with our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona best betting tip for today.
Barcelona have made an excellent start to the campaign despite an underwhelming pre-season. The Catalan club also have a great record visiting Atletico. This is a new stadium and unfamiliar territory but their performances suggest they should be able to get something from this game. Lionel Messi is fresh from scoring a hat-trick on International Duty and with Atletico looking incredibly laboured during their last outing, the first of our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona predictions is for an away win.
Barcelona Win is 31/20 with Coral and that starts our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona predictions for Saturday evening.
Barca took a while to break down Las Palmas during their recent 3-0 success against the Islanders at the Nou Camp and finding a way past this Atletico defence won’t be easy. A number of these players have travelled far and wide during the International Break so don’t be surprised if this match gets off to a slow start.
Highest Scoring Half – Second Half is our second Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting tip and is priced at Evens with Bet Bright
Our third Atletico vs Barcelona prediction seems an obvious call but rarely do you find Lionel Messi priced at Evens to score during 90 minutes. The magical Argentinean netted twice against Las Palmas before single-handedly sending his country to Russia 2018. If anyone is going to make the different, it is likely to be him.
Evens with Betfair looks a good price for Lionel Messi to score anytime that is our final Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting prediction.
Augusto Fernandez is struggling to be fit for this encounter whilst the hosts definitely cannot call upon Felipe Luis who remains on the sidelined. Kevin Gameiro may have to settle for a place on the bench.
Rafinha continues his recovery from a knee injury and is joined on the sidelined by Andres Iniesta. Summer signing Ousmane Dembele is still sidelined.
We’ve got loads more football predictions for this weekend.
The two sides haven’t played at this stadium but Barcelona have an excellent record on the road visiting Atletico Madrid. The hosts did secure a 2-0 win in their most recent Champions League meeting but the visitors have won all four of their most recent meetings in the league.
