Barcelona are facing a genuine LaLiga title challenge from Atletico Madrid and may be content to keep the gap at five points when they meet at Camp Nou on Sunday.
These teams have already shared the spoils in Madrid this term and both of last season’s league and cup meetings at Camp Nou ended on level terms.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Barcelona seemed back to their imperious best in the first half of the campaign, but definite cracks have begun to appear of late.
The Catalan giants were fortunate to escape with a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in the first leg of their Champions League tie.
Their domestic form has also faltered, with Espanyol, Getafe and Las Palmas taking points off them since the start of last month.
Ernesto Valverde was unhappy with an “invisible” penalty awarded against his side at Estadio Gran Canaria on Thursday, which allowed Jonathan Calleri to equalise Lionel Messi’s opener.
The manager said: “The match against Atletico comes up fast and it’ll be important for both teams.
“We go into it with a bad taste in our mouths because we could have got a win, but we’re the leaders and we’re keen to stay in first place.”
Looking at the Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid odds, 25/4 for another 1-1 draw here takes the eye.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico Madrid took a while to find top gear this term, perhaps struggling to adapt to the new surroundings of their fantastic Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
However, Wednesday’s 4-0 demolition of Leganes at that venue made it six straight wins in LaLiga, while they also beat FC Copenhagen at home and away in the Europa League.
Antoine Griezmann bagged all of those goals in midweek, following on from hitting a hat-trick in last Sunday’s 5-2 triumph at Sevilla.
With Diego Costa and Kevin Gameiro providing good support, the France forward is showing why Manchester United were so keen to snap him up last summer.
We’re finishing off our Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid betting tips with a 40/1 scorecast on Griezmann to strike first in a 1-1 draw.
