Reason for Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Predictions
Going to this clash, Atletico has four wins in their last five matches and remain the only unbeaten side in La Liga so far. They will want to address that they have managed just one clean sheet in the last four matches while conceding four goals in their previous five games. Despite the defensive concerns, Atletico has the best defense in the league so far, having conceded just two goals in the seven matches played. The hosts have lost only once in the ten games they have played this season – a Champions League clash against Bayern Munich – and failed to score in three of their ten opening matches of the season. However, they have scored two goals or more in six of their last ten matches and have four straight wins in La Liga and five wins in the seven league games played. Joao Felix enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Diego Simeone seeks responsibility in every game, it doesn’t matter who the opponent is, the players have to do their best, and that is why he is one of the best coaches in the world.
Barcelona has had a tough season so far, and after losing to Real Madrid, they will be keen to avoid dropping points against another title challenger. They beat a 10-man Real Betis 5-2 in the last game and will be looking to establish a good run in the league, with that win being their first in five league games. Barca head to this game with three wins in the last five matches across all competitions. He scored twice in the Betis win and will hope to make the difference in this big game, having scored five times in the last six games against Atletico Madrid. Barcelona has been unconvincing at the back as they have conceded in five straight league matches, shipping in eight goals. However, they have been good in the attack and failed to score in just one of the last seven league matches. Messi is a master of football, and it is a pleasure to watch the wizard with the ball. Antoine Griezmann is no longer a starter, and a lot of criticism is coming to his games. The Frenchman has to show the class.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
