Atletico Madrid hosts Barcelona
Atletico Madrid hosts Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano in a match from the 10th round of La Liga. Here are our football prediction betting tips today for this fixture in the Spanish capital.
Atletico Madrid are shaping themselves once again as a contender for the La Liga title. Los Colchoneros are third in the standings with 17 points which puts them just three points behind the leader Real Sociedad and one point behind the second Villarreal. It’s important to note that Atletico have played two games less than the first two teams in the league.
The manager Diego Simeone is doing a good job with his team because Atletico are the only unbeaten team in La Liga at this moment. Los Colchoneros have a record of five wins and two draws.
Against Barcelona Atletico will have to deal with the absence of Luis Suarez. The former super star of the Catalans was diagnosed with COVID-19, so he’s under quarantine at the moment. Suarez will be missed because he has five goals already in the Spanish league.
Barcelona are approaching this visit to the Wanda Metropolitano from 8th place in the standings. The Catalans won just one of their last five matches in La Liga and this is not what the fans expected from the head coach Ronald Koeman and his players. We can say Koeman’s first few months at the Camp Nou are not really giving us a very good consistency.
In their last match Barca won, though. Los Cules finally got the whole three points when they faced Real Betis at the Camp Nou. The game ended with a 5-2 win for Barcelona.
Ansu Fati and Sergio Busquets are unavaliable for Barcelona at this moment. They are both injured and missing the next game.
These are our football prediction betting tips today for the La Liga showdown between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano. We don’t expect anything different, but a great derby between these two Spanish giants.
