Barcelona were crowned champions of Spain last season although they have their work cut out in order to defend their title this time around. At the time of writing, they trail Real Madrid by four points with an inferior goal difference, although Xavi’s team have an opportunity not only to keep pace but also steal a march on the other Madrid side.

There have been a few bumps in the road for the Catalan side in recent games, with Barcelona losing the Clasico at home and they were also defeated in the Champions League by Shakhtar. They were also held to a 1-1 draw by Rayo Vallecano, with Atletico capable of enjoying a positive result at the Nou Camp.

There is a star-studded attack for both teams and a recent Champions League clash against Porto saw Joao Felix find the net, although the Portuguese is ineligible to play against his parent club. Perhaps Robert Lewandowski will step forward with more goals, with the Pole having eleven goals on the road.

We think that this could be a high-scoring clash with the attacking teams on top, with Atletico having scored thirteen times in six away matches. There is every reason to think that the visitors can be amongst the goals despite Barca’s tight defence and we think that the best bet could be the home side to win and BTTS Yes.
