Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Prediction
Atletico Madrid were deprived of all three points in their most recent clash at the Allianz Stadium after Paulo Dybala scored the only goal of the game. Despite registering just as many shots on target as the Italian outfit in that matchup, the hosts failed to get past Wojciech Szczęsny and subsequently made the trip back home empty-handed.
The hosts have not been coping well in their domestic campaign either. They have just one win to boast of from their previous four clashes in the La Liga. However, to their defense, three of those four matchups were on the road, while their only other clash at home saw them secure all three points.
On the other hand, Barcelona are on a stellar three-match winning streak at the moment. Their last game at home saw them thrash Borussia Dortmund with a 3-1 scorecard. Prior to that matchup, the visitors managed a narrow 2-1 win over Leganes.
Despite the positive form that the Blaugrana have going on, it goes without saying that Messi and Co have not been their usual self on the road this season. The guests have dropped points in four of their last seven outings in the first division. And have garnered no more than ten points from a possible twenty-one as well.
In contrast, Atletico are yet to stumble at home. It is also worth mentioning that they have been recording back to back wins in their past two games here.
Given Barcelona’s struggles to live up to expectations on the road, Diego Simeone’s men are well in contention to pick up the three points this weekend.
Be that as it may, their last two h2h meetings here have seen both teams share the spoils. Hence to be on the safer side, a double chance would be the better punt in this one.
Furthermore, Atletico Madrid have been found napping at the back, and have kept a clean sheet just once in their previous three La Liga games here. In addition, all of their past four h2h clashes at this venue have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together.
Hence, count on Barcelona to get their names on the scoresheet as well, along with the hosts.
