Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona prediction comes before the next La Liga round matchup. This match will be played on Sunday, December 1st, at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, Spain. In this match preview, we bring some betting tips and correct score predictions your way, all based on the analysis of these two teams.
Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Betting Tips
At the moment, Barcelona is at the top of the table of La Liga. But, a few other teams are breathing by their backs. Real Madrid is the closest. Los Blancos have the same number of points as Barca, but the team from Catalonia has a more impressive score difference. Behind Real Madrid is Sevilla with a point fewer and behind Sevilla is Atletico Madrid. This team currently has three points less than Barcelona, which means that with a win on Sunday, they could get to the top of the table.
The question is do Atleti have what it takes to beat mighty Barcelona? Well, the player quality might be slightly in favor of the reigning Spanish Champion, but the team from the Spanish capital definitely has plenty of talented players in the team. And they are great when playing on their turf.
The match is played at Wanda Metropolitano, the stadium where Atletico Madrid is without a defeat this season. Actually, both of these teams play much better when they’re playing at home. Barcelona, for example, have a 100% winning score at home in La Liga this season, while they’ve already lost three matches on the road.
What’s interesting is that Barcelona have a pretty decent record against Atletico Madrid in the capital city. This team has won two and played draw on two occasions in their previous four meetings. They’re traveling to Madrid hopeful of another good performance. And that seems pretty likely considering that Barcelona’s form has been pretty decent lately. Still, to be fair, they haven’t played against such a strong opponent as Atletico Madrid in a while. At least not in La Liga.
In the Champions League, Barca did play against some decent sides, most recently, against Borussia Dortmund. The match was played this Wednesday and the score was 3:1 for the Spanish side.

Barcelona Form and Latest News
They are in a good form, although this season hasn’t been that impressive for them as some earlier ones. Still, they’re at the top of the table and are very motivated to stay there until the end of the season. They definitely have what it takes to beat any team in La Liga, but what’s got to worry them ahead of their trip to Madrid is that they will be without several defenders.
