Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona at La Liga

  • Where: Wanda Metropolitan, Madrid, Spain
  • When: Monday, March 18, 04:00 AM

Atletico had problems coming into this event, playing highly unstable and posting relatively poor results. Barcelona is on the rise, and even though they aren’t playing particularly well, Blaugrana is managing to stay competitive and follow its plan. This is also a battle between the third and the fourth teams in the standings, with the note that Atletico needs three points more than the guests because Bilbao sits only two points behind them.

Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Preview

Atletico Madrid

The loss in Cadiz, 2-1, was the fifth in Atletico’s previous ten games, during which time Diego Simeone’s unit had only three wins. The main reason for that was inconsistent and fragile defense, with the team having only one clean sheet in those 10 events.

This is completely unexpected compared to previous years because we all knew that Atletico won all the trophies through hard and rigid defense, which was the best in Europe at the time.

Atletico is the best team at home in La Liga, having only one draw and 13 wins at Wanda in 14 appearances. They scored 34 goals and allowed 13.

Barcelona

Barca flies high following a win over Napoli in the UEFA Champions League and an advance to the quarterfinals. Xavi’s boys had an interesting matchup against Napoli this Tuesday, and they came out victorious. 

The fact that Barcelona sits comfortably third and doesn’t have to worry about the UCL spot won’t stop them from trying to win at Wanda. When you look at the standings a bit better, Blaugrana can jump over Girona, and even though Real is far away, they still hope to see a miracle and grab the title. 

Barca’s previous two games ended without winners, 1-1 in Naples and 0-0 in Bilbao against Athletic. Previously, they were better than Celta in Vigo, 1-2 and Alaves in Vitoria, 1-3.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Head to Head

Barca was better at home in December, 1-0. Joao Felix, who once played for Atletico, was the sole scorer at this event. This was the fourth meeting in a row in which Barcelona defeated the Mattress Makers and the third straight with the same result. 

Atletico Madrid vs. Barcelona Predictions

Barcelona comes to be cautious and to defend, but Atletico’s home games are intense, with plenty of pressure from the hosts, and we believe there is a solid potential to see over 2.5 goals. The hosts are in a position that demands them to be offensive-minded, which will make this game much more attractive and, hopefully, efficient. 

Our verdict: Over 2.5 goals
