Atletico Madrid v Barcelona: A Choice of Price Boosts for Critical La Liga clash

Luis Suárez, Barcelona

With Real Madrid losing to Valencia in midweek, Sunday’s game between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona takes on even more significance. Real maintain their lead at the top of the table and still have a game in hand but that lead has been cut to one point and victory away from home in this fixture will put the pressure firmly back on Zinedine Zidane’s men.

But, Atleti are clearly going to be tough to beat; their own title chances may be fading but they are fourth in the table and desperate to hold on to their Champions League slot. It makes for a fascinating game and one that will attract a lot of betting money too so, if you were looking to have a punt yourself, Winner Sports have a choice of tempting price boosts for existing customers.

Advantage Barca?

There are four deals on offer for this game – they are all doubles and all of them feature individuals. The first of these lists Barcelona to win and Lionel Messi to score and this has been lifted to 3.80. The great Messi hasn’t been at his prolific best in this campaign and that’s one of the reasons why Barca have been lagging behind Real Madrid at the top of the table but he remains the greatest goal threat and if the visitors are going to win this tie, Messi will surely be contributing.

The second enhanced offer from Winner Sports quotes Barcelona to win and Lionel Suarez to score and this is listed at 4.00. As such, there is slightly better value in that figure but will the Uruguayan get on the scoresheet ahead of his strike partner?

Atleti Threat

If Atletico Madrid are to upset the market in this match then there really is only one player likely to help them secure the points. French international Antoine Griezmann is the hottest property in European football right now and Winner have recognised that with two extra price boosts.

The first is for Atleti to win the match and Griezmann to score which is available at 5.50. It may be tempting but it’s interesting to note that the striker has only nine goals in La Liga this season and that may make some punters think twice.

A longer price, but perhaps a far more tempting offer is on both Griezmann and Messi to score which has been lifted under this deal to 6.50. We’ve discussed their respective records in front of goal and while the Atletico man has been a little subdued this year, this is a tempting long price and may well offer the best value of all.

There are relaxed terms in relation to stakes so as long as you have the money in your account and it’s within the bookmaker’s usual rules, you can bet what you like. Any profits come straight back into that account and overall this is one of the best ranges of price boosts for a single game this weekend.
