21st November 2020 – 21:00, Wanda Metropolitano, Madrid
Atletico Madrid and Barcelona will face each other in the Spanish La Liga 11th round’s derby match. The home side sets its sights on the top of the table, while the visitors need to win and catch up with teams on the standings.
Match Preview & Team News
Atletico Madrid is the only undefeated team in the Spanish top flight, and they allowed their opponents only two points in seven matches played so far. Diego Simeone’s side is on a hot streak of four victories in a row, which lifted them to the 2nd spot on the table. The hosts are three points behind Real Sociedad, but they played two games less. Jan Oblak and the lads are almost unbeatable in the back, as they conceded only twice. On the other hand, Joao Felix and Luis Suarez scored 10 out of Atletico’s 17 goals so far. With a potential victory from this derby clash, the home side could neutralize Real Sociedad’s advantage on the top. However, the hosts will have some troubles in the front in the build-up of this clash since Luis Suarez, Diego Costa, Yannick Carrasco, and Lucas Torreira won’t be available for this game.
Barcelona has lots of troubles this season, and the visitors are the biggest underachievers so far. They are in 8th place, being six points behind their next opponents. Leo Messi and the lads managed to break the winless streak that lasted four games in the latest round against Betis at Camp Nou. Although they scored 15 times so far, Barcelona’s defense is not confident at all, and they managed to keep the clean sheet only against Juventus on the last nine occasions. Ronald Koeman still hasn’t stabilized the squad, and much work is ahead of the Dutch manager. Barcelona celebrated just once at away pitches this season in La Liga, and a very tough challenge is ahead of them.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a very tight clash, and Atletico Madrid seems to be more motivated ahead of this game. The hosts can remain undefeated in this clash, and in our opinion, they are slight favorites despite the odds.
Goals Market Prediction
Their latest two clashes have been very efficient, but Atletico’s defense is very hard to crack this season. Since the hosts will miss some of the players in the final third, we don’t expect to see more than two goals in total.
