Barca vs Atletico (La Liga) Predictions
Barcelona to Keep a Clean Sheet @ 2.40 (7/5)
Xavi Hernandez has transformed FC Barcelona into a great team that can shut out teams with ease. The Catalan giants have the best defense in the Spanish La Liga and in Europe’s top five leagues. They have conceded only nine goals in 29 league games, keeping 22 clean sheets in that period. Barcelona’s home form is better than their record away, and even in games they have faltered, Barcelona’s defense has been top-notch. Atletico Madrid failed to score against Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano, and the hosts can keep their third consecutive clean sheet in the league.
Home Team Goals 1-2 @ 1.53 (8/15)
Barcelona has had a few troubles creating chances at the back, and with the return of Pedro Gonzalez, they should find it easy to get goals upfront. The Blaugranas have scored in more than 90 percent of their home matches this season, and they should get at least a goal against the visitors. Atletico Madrid’s backline has not kept a clean sheet in their last three games, and they all came against teams outside the top six, but Barcelona shouldn’t get up to three goals against Atleti.
Total Corners – Over 8.5 @ 1.91 (10/11)
The odds for at least nine corners here are worth it, and this should come easy in an end-to-end game like this. Barcelona averages over six goals per game, while Atletico Madrid gets at least five corners every 90 minutes. The last meeting between these two teams in January produced eleven corners, and we should expect a good number of corner kicks in this game. Backing this game to see at least nine corners has very good odds on La Liga betting sites.
Barca vs Atletico Madrid Team News
