ATLETICO MADRID v BARCELONA BETTING PREVIEW
Following up a hard-fought 1-0 win against Las Palmas in their league debut, Atletico Madrid kept up their 100% start to the season by beating Sevilla 3-0 away from home last time out. The Colchoneros are one of just five sides yet to concede a goal this season despite playing a more offensive football. Furthermore, they have only been beaten twice in 16 home matches this calendar year.
Jackson Martinez is favourite to get a starting berth ahead of Fernando Torres up front alongside Griezmann. The Frenchman has been on fire so far this season with a goal in the first game of the season against Las Palmas and two assists in their last game against Sevilla. Tiago is an injury doubt for Diego Simeone's men, with Saul Niguez set to come into the XI if required.
Barcelona clinched the La Liga title last season right here at the Calderon stadium courtesy of a 65th minute goal from Lionel Messi. The Champions have 2 wins from 2 matches as they picked up two 1-0 victories over Athletic Bilbao and Malaga. Despite they have not hit top gear yet and have looked somewhat tired in their performances, the Blaugrana extended their unbeaten streak in the league to 16 games - a run that includes 14 victories and 11 clean sheets.
Gerard Pique still has two matches to serve of his suspension after abusing the referee in their Spanish Super Cup tie with Athletic Bilbao. Douglas and Dani Alves are also sidelined for the clash, while makeshift right-back Sergi Roberto has emerged as a doubt. Claudio Bravo should be out of action for a few weeks, meaning that Marc-Andre ter Stegen is the undisputed number one for a while.
Barcelona have won their last 4 matches against Atletico in all competitions and 8 of their last 10 direct encounters in all competitions have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
