Barcelona take on title rivals Atletico Madrid in a much-awaited clash at the Wanda Metropolitano. Alley Sport brings you the Barcelona predicted lineup vs Atletico Madrid from the all-important La Liga clash which kicks off at IST 01:30 AM on 22nd November.

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona Match Preview

Atletico Madrid have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the season. Diego Simeone’s men lie 3rd on the table but only because they have played 2 games less than the teams above them. They have 5 wins and 2 draws from their opening encounters and are the only team not to lose in the Spanish first division.

Barcelona, like Atletico, have only played 7 league matches while most teams have played 9. Despite that, the Catalan side sits 8th in the table after having lost 2 league games already, including an embarrassing el classico defeat to Real Madrid. A victory against Atletico Madrid would make a statement, and resonate the fact that Koeman’s Barcelona are here to win trophies.

Both teams come into this match on the back of impressive victories. Atletico Madrid defeated Cadiz by a handsome 4-0 scoreline while Barcelona thrashed Real Betis 5-2. Atletico Madrid have unsurprisingly been the meanest defence this season so far, letting in just 2 goals in their 7 games. They have also scored 2 more goals than Barcelona’s 15 in that time.

Prediction

We go for a 1-0 Atletico Madrid win considering they are at home and have had the tightest defence in the league. Simeone’s men like to get an early goal and then park the bus, which we believe will be the theme against Barcelona as well.
