Free Tips For Barcelona Vs. Atlético Madrid

On Saturday La Liga´s two best teams will face each other. Barcelona aim to take a giant leap and extend their lead from 8 to 11 points. Atlético Madrid obviously want to close the gap and must do so if they want a chance to win the title. Based on historical results the chance of an Atlético win is small. For the last five games between the two giants Atlético haven’t won once. We have to go all the way back to 2015/2016 Champions League Quarter-finals where Atlético took a home win. To find a win on Camp Nou we will have to go back to 5th February 2006. It will probably be a tight game on Saturday, and the prediction of the Geek is that we will see a draw.

Barcelona:

With a win, Barcelona will have a 11-point lead with 7 games to go. Since they are still in the Champions League, winning on Saturday gives Barcelona room to rotate their squad for the last league games while they can focus on Champions League.
Jasper Cillessen and Ousmane Dembèlé have minor injuries but we don’t believe Dembèlé will be in the starting lineup. Rafinha is out for the season.

Atlético Madrid:

After being eliminated from the Champions League against Juventus, Atlético Madrid have much to prove and give hope to their fans of securing a title this season. An advantage is that Barcelona is still in the competition against Manchester United, which will be played the following Wednesday. Atlético have their next game one-week later home, against Celta Vigo.
Diego Costa and Thomas Lemar are both injured. We don’t know how serious the injuries are so they might not be fit for the upcoming game.
