Atlético Madrid vs. FC Barcelona Prediction on March 17, 2024

Match info

The decisive game between Atlético Madrid and FC Barcelona in the 29th round of the men’s football Spanish championship, 2023–24 La Liga, will take place on Sunday, March 17, at 9 PM local time at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium. Here is Bookmaker Expert’s prediction for this game. What’s for sure is that a close game is anticipated and there’s no stand-out favorite here, which is precisely what the odds of bookmakers with iOS apps show when considering the moneyline win of either of the sides.

Meeting statistics

On Sunday, Atlético Madrid will play Barcelona, the current champions, in a pivotal La Liga match of the weekend. With an equal amount of games played, Barça lead Diego Simeone’s team by a substantial margin in the league standings, with a six-point gap between them. After 28 league games, the “Mattress Makers“ have 17 victories, four ties, and seven losses. They had recently been the subject of intense criticism after winning just two of their previous games in all competitions, going without a goal five times.

Barcelona have won their previous six matches in all competitions, and they most recently defeated Napoli 4-2 on aggregate to secure their spot in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. They are just one point behind Girona and eight points behind Real Madrid, who top the league. The side commanded by Xavi is aiming for La Liga and the Champions League this season, and they want to get closer to the top of the league table following their elimination from the Copa del Rey. Barcelona’s current La Liga campaign consists of 21 victories, six draws, and just one loss.

The current form of Atlético Madrid

Last Saturday, the “Mattress Makers“ were unpleasantly startled by humble Cádiz, who are battling for survival in La Liga, and lost on the road. The capital team’s run of three games without a loss ended in Andalucia. At the moment, Simeone’s team is two points ahead of Athletic Bilbao in fourth place in the Spanish Championship standings. It’s conceivable that Atlético’s concentration on the Champions League rematch with Inter led to the loss to Cádiz. After winning that game against the Italians 2-1, Simeone’s protégés emerged victorious in the penalty shootout.

Vitolo, César Azpilicueta, and Thomas Lemar won’t be available for Atlético Madrid in this important home match. After missing the previous four games owing to different injuries, Diego Simeone is optimistic that both José María Giménez and Antoine Griezmann will be added back to the matchday squad.

The current form of Barcelona Last week, Barça won at home against Mallorca. In the 73rd minute, 16-year-old Lamine Yamal scored the game-winning goal for the Catalans. They’ve won three of the previous four La Liga games going into this one. Overall, Barcelona managed to avoid a defeat in nine straight games across all competitions. They are currently third in the league standings.

When Barcelona visit Atlético this weekend, Pedri and Frenkie de Jong won’t be available. Alejandro Balde, Marcos Alonso, Ferran Torres, and Raphinha—who’s presently dealing with an ankle issue—are all still out. Due to an ACL injury, Barcelona’s gem Gavi is still out and won’t be back till the new season.

Head-to-head encounters

In the 59 meetings between the two teams, Atlético Madrid have only won 13. Barcelona have dominated, winning 31. The remainder of head-to-heads ended in a draw.

Key head-to-head facts

Match analytics

This season, Atlético Madrid suffered a road loss to Barcelona, so a home loss would also be anticipated this time around. Nonetheless, we think Simeone’s squad has a strong opportunity to break their losing skid when they play the Catalan team.
