Barcelona will look to get their La Liga title charge back on track when they welcome Atletico Madrid to the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening.
Quique Setien's men are unbeaten in six matches in the league but recent draws have handed Real Madrid a two-point advantage at the top of the table.
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Betting Odds
Barcelona's superior position in the table means they are 17/20 favourites for this week's clash. They are good value for that tag as well, with the Spanish giants winning their last nine matches on home soil.
Only two of the last six meetings have ended in a draw and punters can get 13/5 for this week's game to end all square.
Atletico's last win at the Camp Nou came in February 2006, so it is no surprise to see Diego Simeone's side as big as 18/5 to triumph.
However, Atleti come into the game in good form, having won their last four matches. Simeone's side last tasted defeat in February and it is now just two losses in their last 15 games.
Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Team News

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
If reports are to be believed, the mood in the Barcelona camp is low to say the least. Certain players claim they deserve to be starting while there have been subtle digs towards Setien and his approach.
However, Barca still know how to find the back of the net and they need to put on a show on Tuesday.
Atletico have scored for 13 consecutive matches and 10/11 looks a fair price for both teams to find the back of the net.
We have already tipped both teams to score but Tuesday's game is much bigger for Barcelona as they press Madrid for league honours.
A defeat could all-but end their title hopes and the Catalans know they will be given no favours by Atletico.
Both sides want Real to slip up in their quest for the title but the recent head-to-head record suggests they should have too much for Simeone's outfit.
While Atletico beat Barca in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, they have failed to beat them in the league since 2016 and punters can back Barca to win an entertaining game at odds of 31/10.
Some of the recent battles between these giants of the Spanish game have failed to deliver on the goals front.
Over 2.5 goals would not have landed in five of the last six meetings, but Atletico are on an incredible away from home and over 2.5 goals in Tuesday's match is priced at 21/20.
