Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona betting tips
Atletico Madrid aim to make an unusually open La Liga title race even more unpredictable by leapfrogging Barcelona to go top of the table on Saturday.
On the resumption after the November international break, six teams are covered by just four points with the likes of Sevilla, Alaves and Espanyol all matching strides with the ‘big three’ so far. Indeed, Alaves will be top if they win at lowly Leganes on Friday night!
But there is no disputing the most attractive Spanish game of the weekend and Barcelona will aim to get back on track after a disappointing week in which they squandered a lead against Inter Milan in the Champions League and then lost at home to Real Betis.

As the stats above reveal, Atletico have a poor win ratio against the reigning champions but have lost just once domestically all season, while at home their only dropped points in either La Liga or the Champions League came in a 1-1 draw with Eibar.
Diego Simeone’s side clearly continue to be very strong on their own pitch and we do not think they will lose this game, with a score draw being our idea of the likely outcome.
