5 money-back bets for Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Barcelona will be hosting fellow Spanish La Liga club Atletico Madrid at the Nou Camp this Sunday, January 11th in one of the weekend’s top European showdowns. Both Barcelona and Atletico are tied for second place in the league, just one point behind leaders Real Madrid. Both sides have 12 wins, two draws and three losses for 38 points. Atletico has scored 34 goals and allowed 15 against while Barcelona has 41 and conceded just eight.
Barcelona was beaten 1-0 at Real Sociedad in their last league outing, but bounced back with a 5-0 victory over Elche in the Cope Del Rey during the week. Atletico was also successful in the same cup competition as they blanked Real Madrid 2-0. Barcelona has scored five goals in each of their past three home league matches, which were all wins, but there’s been some turmoil at the club with Lionel Messi reportedly being angry with manager Luis Enrique.
Barcelona went unbeaten in their first eight league games with seven wins and a draw and didn’t allow a goal against in them. However, they’ve managed just three clean sheets in their past nine league outings. Atletico has added some depth to their attack by adding Fernando Torres on loan from Italian Serie A side Inter Milan. Torres has scored seven times against Barcelona so far in his career and is hoping to add to the total on Sunday. Atletico has scored in their past seven away contests and have won five and lost two of them. However, Barcelona has five wins and a draw against Atletico in their last half dozen meetings.
