Tip Reasoning

  • Barcelona have won just one of their last five games, failing to score in three.
  • Atletico Madrid have kept clean sheets in three of their four home matches this season.
  • Los Colchoneros have also maintained clean sheets in five of their last eight La Liga starts at Wanda Metropolitano.
  • The hosts haven’t conceded a goal in their last two meetings against Barcelona.

Barca to draw another blank at Wanda

Barcelona failed to score for the third time in five games when crushed 3-0 by Benfica in midweek, and the ailing Catalans look set to come up short again when they face champions Atletico Madrid this Saturday night.

Barca boss Ronald Koeman is surely on borrowed time following his side’s latest UEFA Champions League embarrassment on Wednesday, where a combination of errant finishing, hapless defending and shameful ill discipline led to a humiliating dressing down at Estadio De Luz.

The Catalans are pointless in Group E having also been torn apart by Bayern Munich on Matchday 1, and a miserable group stage exit awaits barring a significant turnaround.

Barca remain unbeaten in La Liga (W3, D3), but they’ve failed to dispatch the likes of Granada and Cadiz in recent weeks, failing to score against the latter. Koeman’s side are in complete disarray, and we can’t envisage them landing a significant blow on Atleti this weekend.

After a shock 1-0 loss at Alaves on Matchday 7, Diego Simeone’s side immediately returned to winning ways with a 2-1 triumph over AC Milan on Tuesday. Overall, Los Colchoneros have made a solid start to the campaign, and they’ve been defensively sound as ever on their own turf, keeping three clean sheets from their four outings at Wanda Metropolitano in all competitions.

It’s easy to foresee Atleti soaking things up and picking Barca apart here, though the shade of odds-on for a home victory looks a little stingy considering three of Madrid’s four home games have been drawn, while the visitors do have that unbeaten league record still in-tact.

Instead, the 6/4 about an Atleti clean sheet (Barcelona to score under 0.5 goals) makes far greater appeal and removes concern for punters about Simeone’s men making the breakthrough. Los Colchoneros have kept Barca out in the last two meetings and their task should be easier this time around based on how badly their opponents have been faring in front of goal.

The champions are undoubtedly the most likely to come out on top here despite our advice to decline the match betting odds on offer, though their style of play may not lead to Barca’s backline being exploited as much as they have been on the continent.

With Atleti taken to edge matters and keep their opponents at arms-length, 1-0 is our correct score prediction for this potentially pivotal clash in the capital.
