The best big odds football tips for today
It’s time for another great Spanish derby because Atletico Madrid hosts Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano. Let’s see what we can tell you about his game in our best big odds football tips for today.
Atletico Madrid can eventually move to third place if they win on Sunday. Los Colchoneros returned to action after the World Cup with a win. Diego Simeone’s team faced Elche at home and enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win. Both goals were scored in the second half when Joao Felix and Alvaro Morata found the net. Both assists were provided by Antoine Griezmann.
Atletico finished this game with 10 men on the pitch, though. Mario Hermoso was sent off in the second half. It means that Hermoso won’t play against Barca. Felipe could replace him in defense, but it’s not exactly clear what Simeone will decide.
Koke should return in the starting eleven against Barcelona. The captain started from the bench against Elche last week.
Barcelona will try to hold the leadership in La Liga on Sunday. Right now the Catalans are sharing the top with Real Madrid – both teams have 38 points, but Barca’s goal difference is better.
Last week Barca restarted their season in a disappointing way – with a 1-1 draw at home against Espanyol. Marcos Alonso opened the score for Los Cules, but in the second half Espanyol managed to equalise.
Robert Lewandowski will be missing at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday. The Polish super star is suspended for this game. It means that Xavi Hernandez must find a way to replace him in the attack. Players like Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres or even Memphis Depay could find themselves leading the attack against Atletico.
