Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona: Catalans tipped to secure capital gains
Odds: Atletico 7/4, Draw 23/10, Barcelona 29/20
Kick Off: 1945, 14/10/2017
Stadium: Wanda Metropolitano
TV: Sky Sports
Barcelona claimed LaLiga and Copa del Rey wins at the Vicente Calderon last season and are fancied to prevail on their maiden trip to Atletico Madrid’s impressive new stadium.
Emotions are sure to run high as the Catalan giants visit the Spanish capital a fortnight after the controversial independence referendum.
However, Lionel Messi and Co can stay focused and secure a 10th straight victory in all competitions, with 29/20 for an away win kicking off our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting predictions.
A Look At Atletico Madrid’s Betting Odds
Atletico Madrid have struggled to find their rhythm this season and tasted defeat at Wanda Metropolitano for the first time when Chelsea were deserved 2-1 victors here in the Champions League.
That reversal was followed by a frustrating 0-0 draw at Leganes in LaLiga, with Antoine Griezmann substituted in the 67th minute after failing to make an impact.
Diego Simeone knows only too well that his team lacks a cutting edge up front and Diego Costa’s return to the club in January cannot come soon enough.
Simeone has tinkered with his tactics in a bid to freshen things up, but a 3-2-3-2 formation failed to work at Leganes and Atletico look worth taking on at the moment.
This should be a tight tussle but 29/4 for a 1-0 away win appeals from the Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona odds.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Barcelona have been ultra-clinical since losing out to Real Madrid in the pre-season Spanish Super Cup, keeping clean sheets in seven of their nine consecutive victories.
Ernesto Valverde has benefited from a kind fixture list in this competition, but a 3-0 demolition of Juventus in amongst the domestic triumphs shows how well the Catalan giants are playing.
It goes without saying that Barca are blessed with great talent up front, but their defence has also been on point of late.
Gerard Pique leads by example and will be fired up for this after being booed when on international duty, Samuel Umtiti is proving a rock in his second season, while full-backs Jordi Alba and Nelson Semedo add great athleticism.
We’re happy to take 29/10 for an away win to nil in our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting tips.
