The two Spanish grands Atletico Madrid and Barcelona will play against each other on the upcoming Sunday within another round of the Spanish Primera. Despite the field factor, which will be on the Mattressers’ side in the encounter, and a great shape of the team from the capital of Spain, bookmakers reckon, that the Catalonians will have an advantage in the clash. One can agree with such action line, not only because Barca play great away this season of the Spanish championship, but also it should not be forgotten, that Atletico had the most difficult away match against German Bayer, which they managed to win with a score a 4:2.
Not everything works out for Atletico this season, as Diego Simeone would have wanted. There are problems in Primera, the gap from Real is seven points plus the Royals have a game in hand. But there’s also the Champions League, where it seems, that the Mattressers will advance to quarterfinals.
Unlike Atletico, which had the hardest match in midweek against Bayer, Barca rested and prepared for the game against the team from the capital of Spain. After the devastating defeat from PSG, the Catalonians have basically no chances of getting to the UCL quarterfinals, i.e. the future guests will put all their efforts into Primera.
Barcelona know how to play against Atletico. Recent semifinal matches of Copa del Rey can be brought, as an example, the winner of which was the team from Catalonia. Apart from that, Atletico may simply lack freshness on the forthcoming weekend, as the match against Bayer was extremely energy-consuming.
Prediction for the match: Barcelona not to lose.
