ATLETICO MADRID v BARCELONA BETTING PREVIEW
Atletico Madrid have won their last three La Liga games, with the most recent one a 4-1 hammering of Sporting Gijón. The Colchoneros remain seven points off top spot in the league, but they look set to reach the Champions League quarter-finals after their 4-2 midweek win away to Bayer Leverkusen. Their defensive solidity is fading away as their only clean sheet in their last six games came against goal-shy Leganés. Anyway, they are firing all cylinders up front with 11 goals scored in the last 3 games.
Diego Simeone will be missing the trio of Tiago, Juanfran and Augusto Fernandez for the match. Kevin Gameiro and Antoine Griezmann will continue up top after performing brilliantly in their last two matches, with Saul Niguez and Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco supporting them from the wings. The likes of Gabi and Koke are likely to play from the offi n the middle of the park, while Sime Vrsaljko and Filipe Luis are favourites as rigth and full backs.
Barcelona are not enjoying a good period of form. They were trashed 4-0 in Champions League against PSG and then needed a Lionel Messi penalty to beat struggling Leganes at Camp Nou last weekend. They are only one point behind the Galacticos in the title race and have only failed to score in one league game this term. Furthermore, the Catalans are unbeaten at the Vicente Calderón in their last six meetings (W5 D1).
Sergio Busquets is set to return for the visitors after suspension, but Javier Mascherano remains doubtful. Andre Gomes is expected to start in midfield, with Ivan Rakitic most likely to drop to the bench. Samuel Umtiti should be preferred to Jeremy Mathieu at centre-back while the MSN trio (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) will lead the line.
