Catalans to take the cake
Barcelona, despite having had to leave the hallowed turf of the Nou Camp, as it undergoes repairs, have been impressive at home of late, something that looks set to continue against Atletico this weekend.
Winning five of their six clashes here so far, and only falling afoul of league leaders Real Madrid the Catalans look set to make it six.
Athelti haven’t been infallible on the road either, losing two and drawing one, including their most recent game, losing 2-1 to 11th placed UD Las Palmas.
They have taken the win four of the last seven times these two sides have matched up in Catalonia, and with it could move three points clear in third place.

Take the corner line for Los Colchoneros
Atheltico may struggle to take three points from the match, yet they will still remain competitively forward thinking, and in turn earn themselves some corners.
They have been averaging 4.83 corners per away game, covering the over 3.5 nicely, and have seen the line hit in 67% of their games.
Possessing a wealth of talent up front, and an in-form Alvaro Morata will only bring them more corners.

Raphinha has returned with a vengeance
Raphinha missed time earlier in the season with an injury, yet since his return has impressed massively in his role earning a slew of shots on targets to his name.
This culminated in him having eight shots in their match with FC Porto on Tuesday, four of which were on target.
He has been averaging 2.2 shots on target per game, and will be a major outlet for them up front, as his pace will cause the Atletico backline issues.
Targeting the goal has been a major part of his game, and one he is unlikely to shy away from in a crucial game.
