MATCH PREDICTION, ODDS & FREE TIPS
On Sunday afternoon, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid go head-to-head at the Nou Camp, in a massive game in the race for the Champions League spots in La Liga.
Although Xavi’s team is six games unbeaten in La Liga, the results and performances have been less than convincing from the boys from Barcelona. The Blaugrana currently sit fifth-place in La Liga, a point behind Sunday’s fourth-place opponents in the fight for the four Champions League spots.
Barcelona recorded a 1-0 win at Alaves last time out. It was their fourth straight La Liga game to produce under 2.5 goals.
Incredibly, the Catalan giants have not played a home game since 18th December, with their last four league matches coming away from Catalonia. They have an inconsistent recent record on home soil in the Spanish top-flight, having won just two of their last five league matches on home soil.
The reigning Spanish champions have struggled for consistency this season, which has led them to drop to fourth-place in the table. Diego Simeone’s team are a massive 14 points behind arch-rivals and league leaders Real Madrid.
A 3-2 home win over Valencia last time out in La Liga means that the team from the Spanish capital are unbeaten in three matches in the Spanish top-flight. However, they have won just two of their last seven games in La Liga.
Atletico have a poor recent away record in the Spanish top-flight, winning just one of their last eight league games on their travels.
