Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona: Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips-01/02/2017

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona
Copa del Rey – Semi-Final First Leg
Date: Wednesday 1st February, 2017
Kick-off: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Vicente Calderon, Madrid.

Real Betis’ decent performance and referee’s critical decisions stopped Barcelona’s impressive five-win streak last weekend at Benito Villamarin. Blaugrana had a clear goal disallowed as the main referee could not see that the ball was well behind the line which left Luis Enrique and his men four points behind their arch-rivals Real Madrid at the top. The brutal schedule continues as the Catalans have only two days for rest before the travel to Vicente Calderon and the first leg of Copa del Rey semifinal with Atletico Madrid. Barca netted at least four goals in three of their last five matches meaning that Atleti’s defense will be on a serious challenge this Wednesday.

However, if anyone can stop Barcelona’s powerful attacking trio, it is Diego Simeone. The Argentine manager has problems on his own, though, since his team is winless in last three matches in all competitions which keeps them ten points behind Real at the top. Atletico managed to keep four clean sheets in last six home matches which gives a decent value to 8/11 odds offered by the bookmakers on Under 2.5 goals bet.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona: Head-to-Head Stats

Atletico managed to hold Barca to a 11 draw in the league match played midway through September last year at Campo Nou. Ivan Rakitic pushed Barca ahead, but Angel Correa managed to level the score for the visitors just after the hour-mark. Barcelona have been more successful historically winning 26 out of 53 games with Atletico Madrid.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona: Prediction

As stated above, the Under 2.5 goals bet seems to be by far the best betting option set at 8/11 odds. Braver punters can chase the draw at 23/10 which seems to be a more than realistic option under the given circumstances.
