Barcelona v Atletico Madrid tips – Barca odds-on to win

While several leading European football leagues are already cut and dried as far as the title is concerned, the same can’t be said of the Spanish La Liga where no less than four teams can still be crowned champions.

At the time of writing, Atletico Madrid have a slender advantage at the top of the table, although Barcelona are now breathing down their necks and a victory for Ronald Koeman’s side would see them leapfrog Atleti at a crucial juncture in the season which would make them very warm favourites to be Spanish champions.

Are Barcelona a Banker Bet Against Atletico?

Barcelona have not always had things their own way this season, although the Catalan side are now in a position to be crowned champions after winning three of their past four matches in La Liga including a thrilling 3-2 victory over Valencia which saw Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann work well in tandem with each other.

If you compare the La Liga betting odds, then you will find 8/11 about a Barcelona victory at the Nou Camp although some punters might baulk at that price considering that they were turned over at home to Granada recently and there will be plenty of pressure on them to win.
