Why Bet on Atletico MadridAtletico looked the part of the team that has been Barca’s biggest Spanish competition this season, finding an opening goal of the game at the 25th minute through striker Fernando Torres, but the on-loan player from Serie A club AC Milan turned from hero to villain in 10 minutes, as he received a controversial second yellow card booking to exit the game. This gave Barca a chance to come back in the game, one which they took in the second half to record a come-from-behind 2-1 win. If Atletico—who’ve lost just two of their last 25 games—can maintain their discipline, they will definitely have a winning chance over the Barcelona team that barely scrapped out a win over 10-man Atleti last week.
