As mid-week fixtures arrive, across Europe, now is the time to try and latch on to some gems that can potentially give us some good profit.
Barcelona come into his game after a strong performance on the weekend where they beat Leganes by a score of 5-1. Despite MSN getting back to their strong scoring form, what is important to note in Barcelona is that they have struggled to keep clean sheets so far this campaign. They conceded 2 goals against Real Betis and Deportivo Alves so far this campaign while 1 against Leganes. The defence has been shaky in recent times especially with new defenders taking up place as well as Dani Alves moving out of the team. Barcelona has been experimenting with a 3 man defence, and that has left them vulnerable at the back. Ter Stegen and Cilhessen have also shown to be vulnerable at the back.
Atletico Madrid have been in great form, yet to lose a single game this campaign and will be looking to continue their form against a Barcelona side who is struggling to defend. Greizmann, Gaitan and Gameiro have all been in good form heading into this game, and the pace will be trouble for the Barcelona backline. Atletico Madrid have kept 4 clean sheets in a row but been in good scoring form, netting 10 goals in their last 2 games. Atletico have managed to find the back of the net in 5 out of their last 6 trips to the Camp Nou; and that will raise their confidence coming into this game.
I expect both teams to continue their god scoring form and both to score in this game.
