9pm So much at stake. What a fixture. Barcelona were left gutted at the weekend after a last minute Celta Vigo goal left them with a 2-2 draw. They are now two points behind Real Madrid at the top of La Liga, with Atletico Madrid a distant third. xG actually puts Atletico Madrid in 2nd and Barcelona in 3rd – a sign of how under-par Barcelona have been this season but they will still feel that they can lift the La Liga title. A loss would be a huge blow here however.

Atletico usually approach these big games away from home in a negative away, setting up to defend. However, they are too far away from Real Madrid and Barcelona to catch them so perhaps they will open this game up a little. They drew their first game back after lockdown and have won all four since so they come into the game in a good place. They were lucky to beat Levante on xG but they have been creating chances in every game.

Apart from a 0-0 draw against Sevilla, Barcelona have been creating an xG of over 2 goals per game. They generated 1.66 against Leganes, but bossed the game and ran out 2-0 winners. I expect plenty of chances here and if there is an early goal for either side, I think all hell will break loose and we’ll have a very open game. Both sides xG numbers coming into this one are very good. Barcelona can’t afford to lose, but a draw would be a big blow too considering they could find themselves four points behind Real Madrid. I like Both Teams To Score at what looks like a very generous 1.94.

The Ultra Says:
Two points win Both Teams To Score at 1.94 with BETDAQ Exchange.
