Atleti are going well in La Liga and are offered at a huge 9/1 to beat leaders Barca in a goal-laden game at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday
Atletico Madrid against Barcelona is always one of the most watchable matches in La Liga, with Saturday’s meeting between the sides at the Wanda Metropolitano set to be huge.
While Barca are flying high at the top of the league after winning each of their first seven matches in the league, they will face a stern test at the new home of Atletico.

Atletico may be fourth in the La Liga table having drawn three of their first seven matches, but Diego Simeone’s men always seem to raise their game when they come up against Barcelona.
While their record in home league games against Barca is not good in recent years, the switch to the Wanda Metropolitano from the old, crumbling Vicente Calderon means they have no reason to fear the head-to-head record.
And with Atletico having beaten Barca twice at home in the Champions League in the last few years, Simeone and his side know what it takes to get one over on the Catalan giants on home soil.
As 22 of Barcelona’s last 25 games in La Liga have seen over 2.5 goals scored, it seems inevitable that there will be plenty of action in Saturday night’s clash, especially as Lionel Messi is in such fine form.
He is the top goalscorer in La Liga so far this season and has a terrific record in games against Atleti, scoring 27 times in 34 appearances against Los Colchoneros.
But Atletico have plenty of attacking threats of their own and Barca’s defence can be vulnerable when put under the type of pressure Antoine Griezmann and his colleagues will ensure they do at the weekend.
