Atletico Madrid have the potential to open up the title race in Spain when they take on Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano. Barcelona’s shock defeat to Real Betis has become a major talking point in La Liga as it keeps Barcelona only four points ahead of Real Madrid, who have made a disastrous start to the campaign. The upcoming match on Saturday will once again witness a contest between two teams with contrasting styles – Atletico will be trying to make it hard for Barcelona with a physical approach while Ernesto Valverde’s men will try to stick with the passing football that has made them so successful.
Home advantage has favoured Atletico in the past and a 1-0 win for the home team is at a very attractive price of 8/2 for this match. Meanwhile, goals are expected to be low but it is not a huge pick to back under 1.5 goals in the match even if it is offered at 2/1. The attractive choice would be to go with a Barcelona 2-1 win at 8/1.
