FC Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid [Prediction, May 17th]

La Liga gives way to one last match of this season, that is poised to show to the world who the Champions are. Between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, the bookmakers give Barca the edge to win, especially since they are counting on home pitch advantage. Atletico have emerged as surprise candidates to win the title, but considering both teams have stumbled in their recent La Liga result, it’s no wonder the title is still being played on the last match day.

Barcelona are unbeaten in their last five matches, and with a victory at Camp Nou, even with a minimal advantage, they will win another title, which Messi wants to dedicate to Tito Villanova. The Blaugranas need to patch up their defense, that’s actually the only way they will win tomorrow, as the way they’re conceding does not leave too much room for guessing that Atletico will take advantage of their every mistake. In their head to head meetings this season, Barca didn’t manage to beat Atletico, and recorded 4 draws and one defeat.


Atletico Madrid will have nobody to blame but themselves should they lose the title at Camp Nou. They have la Liga’s best defense, and all they need to do to win the title is record at least a draw at Camp Nou where Barcelona won 6 out of their last 7 matches. Diego Costa’s presence in Barcelona is still under doubt, and Diego Simeone must find a way to keep his team’s cool in front of the pressure. Atletico’s performance after qualifying for the Champions League final has been borderline bad, as they lost to Levante and then barely managed to draw against Malaga.

An outright Barca win is priced up at 1.83, an Atletico Madrid one at 4.50 and a draw between the two sides at 3.60. Over 2.5 goals is at 1.90 and Lionel Messi as an anytime goalscorer is at 1.70. Both teams to score is at 1.80, but we are going to bet on the total number of corners being between 9 and 11 at 2.87 with bet365.
