Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid, La Liga 08.05.2021

In what could possibly be the biggest game of the La Liga season, Barcelona welcome Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou this Saturday with the game bearing massive implications on this season’s title race.

With the season heading to the final stretch, Barca lie third on the log, tied on points with Real Madrid in second place while the visitors Atletico are two points clear at the top of the table.

For this massive clash, we will take a look at Betway betting app’s prices for our preview and betting tips.

BARCELONA

For all the troubles they have had this season – both on and off the pitch, it is quite remarkable that Barcelona could still possibly end up with two trophies in the bag at the end of the season, as they are smack in the middle of this exciting title race and they have already won the Copa Del Rey after they thrashed Athletic Bilbao in the final back in mid-April.

They have now trained their guns on the scramble for La Liga. A win here for them would move them to the top of the table, even if for a day, as Real Madrid would claim the top spot from them if they beat fourth-placed Sevilla on Sunday night.

The Catalans missed a glorious opportunity to move to the top of the pile when they lost to Granada a couple of weeks ago. But they bounced back with a thrilling victory at Valencia and now have the perfect chance to atone for that missed opportunity.

ATLETICO MADRID

Atletico are on a quest to end a 7 year wait for the La Liga crown having last won the domestic tile back in the 2013-14 season. It all seemed smooth sailing as they started the season on a tear but they seemed to have encountered some headwinds and turbulence in this final stretch to all but blow the race wide open.

The capital club suffered a damaging 2-1 defeat at Athletic Bilbao at the end of April which spelled doom on their title challenge. But in keeping with the spills and thrills of the most exciting La Liga title race in years, both their title rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona failed to make the most of this as Real were held to a barren draw at home to Betis while Barca, in the mother of all shocks, lost at home to Granada!

The football gods certainly seem to be smiling at the Reds and Whites as, bar this Barca game, their remaining three games to end the season look favorable on paper. They play at home to Sociedad and Osasuna before wrapping up the season at Valladolid on May 23. Diego Simeone will look to make the most of this Barca game.

BARCELONA VS ATLETICO MADRID BETTING TIPS

Although Atletico have been inconsistent in the last few weeks, this is certainly their most important game of the season and we can expect they will be ready for the challenge. Diego Simeone has over the years made a name for himself as a master at neutralizing attack-oriented sides like Barcelona. He won the reverse 1-0. We expect another tight and cagey affair here particularly to start the game and we are going for Under 1.5 first-half goals @ 1.42 as our initial betting prediction.

With so much to play for, tension will be at fever pitch here. Previous encounters between these two teams point to an air of hostility between them. The last 5 H2H games alone has seen a total of 35 bookings between the two teams, which averages to about 7 bookings a game. We don’t expect any de-escalations of the distaste they have for each other here. However, instead of the cards total, we will go for the 1×2 cards market. Given that Barca will be the aggressor here, Atletico will find themselves on the backfoot and we fancy they get the lion’s share of the bookings here @ 1.66 with Betway bookie review as our final call.
