Barcelona vs Atl. Madrid Prediction & Betting tips
Top game in Spain: On matchday 33, second in the table FC Barcelona receives third place Atletico Madrid for the hit game in La Liga. In the title fight after the second draw within a week, Barça is already with his back to the wall against an athlete who has got in shape in time.
The Rojiblancos last celebrated four wins in a row, while Barça allowed himself bitter slips in the championship fight first in Seville (0-0) and then in Vigo (2-2) – and thus lost ground to rival Real Madrid.
Just before the top game, FC Barcelona is already under enormous pressure. Without a home win, the title is likely to be a long way off, after all, the gap to first place is already two points – and the direct duel, which is used in Spain in the event of a tie, is also known to have lost Barcelona to Real Madrid, as is well known.
The mood in Catalonia should be tense before the top game Barcelona against Atletico Madrid, in which the odds speak for the Blaugrana, but Atletico can also be trusted.
“Frustrated, bitter and sad” – this is how you can summarize the emotional world of FC Barcelona after the 2-2 win at Celta Vigo on Saturday – because that’s exactly what Luis Suárez did after the game. The double-scorer brought Barcelona twice in front in Galicia – his first goals after months of injury – but it shouldn’t be enough to win because Celta captain Iago Aspas had the last word minutes before the end and circled a free kick around the wall into the short corner.
Again, there was no victory for Barcelona abroad – the tenth game on the opponent’s place without a win in 16 guest appearances – there was another setback in the title fight.
A few days earlier, Barça had blundered abroad, relinquished the lead at the 0-0 in Seville – now the next costly slip in the title race. Much to the delight of arch-rivals Real Madrid, who extended their championship lead by two points to a 1-0 win at Espanyol on Sunday evening.
“I don’t know why it is so difficult for us to go away,” coach Quique Setien said helplessly about the misery in away games. “We have less and less room for error,” said Setién, “we theoretically have to win every game and hope that our opponents still miss points. We will continue to try to collect all the points. ”
From Barcelona’s point of view, the strong Atletico comes to Camp Nou at the wrong time – because the colchoneros are in good shape just in time for the top game: Ten games are already unbeaten, the last four were all won by Atletico – with just one conceded goal
This goal was last scored in the 2-1 win over the weekend against Deportivo Alaves – with a penalty in added time. After the restart, Atletico remembers its virtues and strength, the defense, because after the restart, the team of coach Diego Simeone did not concede a goal in three of the five games.
With this small series – and because the opponents for the Champions League are always failing – Atletico suddenly has a comfortable seven point lead over fifth. Atletico himself was sixth three weeks ago, two points behind the targeted fourth place.
Despite being seven points ahead, Atletico will certainly not give in at Camp Nou, on the contrary. However, it should be noted: Especially at home, Atletico has rarely convinced this season, only five of his 16 guest appearances could win. Barcelona are the strongest home team in the league with 15 wins and a draw from 16 games.
“The next game will be really difficult, as it always is in Barcelona,” Atletico coach Simeone knows about the strength of the Catalans with a view to the top game on Tuesday.
But two important regular players will not be able to help with the storm at Camp Nou: Captain Koke and Defense Chief Savic are both unavailable to Simeone due to a yellow card suspension.
