Over 4.5 Bookings

Barcelona FC vs Atletico Madrid 08.05.2021

In what has all the makings of a title decider, Barcelona hosts league leaders Atletico Madrid in the La Liga this Saturday, with a chance to leapfrog them into first place with a win. They threw away a golden opportunity to do that a couple of weeks ago when they lost at home to Granada in what was their first loss at home in 13 La Liga matches. They moved on quickly from that disappointment by winning at Valencia in their last match which set up this perfect matchup with the league leaders.

Atletico on their part were relieved when neither Barcelona nor 2nd-placed Madrid could take full advantage of their slip up against Athletic Bilbao and quickly got back to winning ways as they clinically saw off relegation-threatened Elche 1-0 away in their last match.

This will be a tough match no doubt. With so much on the line, we can expect both teams to do all they can to gain an advantage. There is no love lost between these two teams and their meetings often tend to be ultra physical. This certainly checks the boxes as far as physicality and cynical challenges is concerned and we feel there is value in the cards markets. We are therefore backing Over 4.5 bookings here.
