Atl. Madrid – Barcelona: Preview & Prediction
Duel at the top between Atletico de Madrid, 3rd, and FC Barcelona, leader of this Liga! This match at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano should be tight and closed between two clubs that meet very often in the league, Spanish Cup and Champions League. The Atletico de Madrid, who have only 2 points lost at home against Eibar (1-1) this season, are formidable but the Blaugranas are just as outside because they are unbeaten for 5 trips and remain on 1 success on the field of Rayo Vallecano (3-2) and 1 draw in Italy against Inter Milan (1-1) in the Champions League. Defeated against Real Betis (3-4) at Camp Nou, FC Barcelona will want to redo the cherry but Rakitic, suspended, will not move. Hooked on Leganes (1-1) on November 3, the Madrid club just beat successively Borussia Dortmund (2-0) in the Champions League and Athletic Bilbao (3-2) in the Liga. Not very inspired against Barca in his stadium in the league, Atlético has been looking for a success for 8 years now!
Barcelona have been unbeaten for six games against Atlético Madrid: 3 wins and 3 draws.
FC Barcelona are leaders with 1 point ahead of Atlético Madrid, 3rd.
Barça are in a series of 5 games without defeat away (3 wins and 2 draws).
The Colchoneros have already been hooked by Eibar (1-1) at home.
We must go back to February 14, 2010 to see the last victory of Atlético at home in front of Barça in Liga.
FC Barcelona and Atletico Madrid know each other by heart but Barça, undefeated for six games against Colchoneros, will bring back something from this trip to the capital.
