In midweek, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid secured their places in the knock out rounds of the UEFA Champions League with victories over FC Porto and Feyenoord respectively. And with that out of the way, attention will now turn to commitments in the Spanish topflight.
Both teams are tied on 31 points each with only goal difference separating both sides in third and fourth place respectively.Their positions and proximity makes this fixture even more interesting and the teams are likely to be at the throat of each other for the entirety of the match.
The match is expected to be keenly contested given what is at stake. Aside from aiming to win this match in order to add to their respective point tallies, a win for either of them will move them closer to Real Madrid at the top of the table.
Going by recent results of the last five meetings between these teams, and the fact that Barcelona will be playing at home, we expect Barcelona to win this match or have stakes returned if finishes in a draw as our main Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid prediction.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Goals
Still sticking with the theme of goals for this encounter, because the potential for a goal fest is too good to ignore. Historically, this fixture has always produced goals except in four of the last five matches. However, considering the goalscoring form both teams have shown in recent times, it will be hard not to invest in the goals market heavily.Three of Atletico Madrid’s last five matches returned over 2.5 goals, while games involving Barcelona returned the same outcome two times in the last five outings. With that in mind, we predict that at least three total goals will be scored in this match as our final Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid prediction.
