Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Atletico has plenty of attacking players and Barca’s defense can be vulnerable when put under the type of pressure Antoine Griezmann and his colleagues will put on them this weekend. Barcelona likes to hold the ball and pass and dribble their way into the opponents box to score., but Diego Simeone’s Atleti is more than prepared for this style of play. Atletico allowed fewer shots than anyone else in Europe last season. They eliminate space down the middle and will make it hard for Messi and Co. to penetrate their defense. Barcelona forwards will rarely get enough space to create something meaningful. Pick: Atletico Madrid 2 – Barcelona 1
