The game of the weekend in Spain takes place at the Wanda Metropolitano amid a backdrop of national uncertainty off the pitch, with Barcelona's last match being played behind closed doors because of the Catalan independence referendum.
What is certain is that the Blaugrana are sure to be greeted with a sea of Spain flags and an even more hostile atmosphere than usual in their first ever game at the Metropolitano.
It should be quite an occasion on Saturday evening and dabblebet customers can watch and bet on this fixture via desktop, mobile and tablet. Your account must be funded or active in order to see the action live. There is little to split the two teams in the market with Atletico offered at 7/4 (2.75), while Barca can be backed at 8/5 (2.60) and the draw is offered at 23/10 (3.30).
Of course, Barcelona have won all seven league matches they have contested so far this term, and despite the difficult context of their last match, they produced a strong second half performance to beat Las Palmas 3-0.
The Blaugrana have, however, had a relatively kind start to the season in terms of fixtures and without doubt their trip to the Spanish capital will be the biggest test of Ernesto Valverde's tenure.
The Catalans' statistics remain impressive with their seven wins seeing them score 23 times and concede just twice, numbers which are far superior to those of their opponents; Atletico, for their part, have netted just 12 times in their seven matches, although five of those goals came against a poor Las Palmas side.
Nevertheless, Los Rojiblancos have scored in their last eight matches against Barca in all competitions and they remain unbeaten in La Liga this term with four wins and three draws.
Both teams to score on Saturday night is offered at 4/6 (1.66) but for higher odds the price of 6/4 (2.50) for both teams to score and either to win looks extremely tempting as this is a consistently interesting market offered by dabblebet, and this particular selection has paid out in five of the last eight matches between the sides.
