Both sides come into this fixture sitting in the Champions League spots, but only a victory for either will see them keep tabs on the table-topping Real Madrid. [banner][/banner] 

La Liga Preview

It has been a challenging period for Barcelona, as pressure has begun to increase on Xavi. The coach’s long-term future at the club was questioned after last weekend’s match, and there were some reports that claimed that Barcelona’s match against FC Porto in the Champions League was a must-win encounter for the Spanish side.  Fortunately, the La Liga champions landed maximum points in that fixture, and their focus can now switch to this clash against Atletico. Barcelona currently sit fourth in the standings, as they have won just three of their last five matches. The performance levels have been questioned in recent weeks, and they were hugely fortunate to avoid defeat in their previous league match against Rayo Vallecano, as they scored a late equalising goal. [news_button][/news_button]  Atletico Madrid are level on points with Barcelona at present, but they sit above the reigning champions on goal difference. They come into this match knowing that a third straight victory would see them cut the advantage at the top of the standings to just a point. Their recent form has been very eye-catching, and they are currently among the highest scorers in the league after netting 30 in their 13 matches.  Atletico’s solid form was maintained last weekend, as they battled to a 1-0 home win against Mallorca. The winner in that fixture was netted with 25 minutes remaining by Antoine Griezmann. They also followed up on that win with a Champions League victory over Feyenoord in midweek. 

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Head to Head 

Barcelona have dominated the previous clashes between these sides, as they have won each of the last three against Atletico in the league. Their most recent victory was a 1-0 success in April. Atletico’s only win in the previous five was a home success in October 2021. 

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid Prediction

Atletico’s poor away record against Barcelona would be a massive concern coming into this fixture. However, they have been impressive in the final third throughout this term, and it could be worth siding with the visitors to upset the odds on Sunday.

Athletic Bilbao will be back in La Liga action this weekend, as they look to continue their unbeaten streak and put pressure on the sides in the top four spots. Rayo Vallecano will be their opponents this weekend, as the visitors look for a first win in four.

 

La Liga Preview 

Interesting action takes place in La Liga this weekend, as Athletic Bilbao look to put pressure on the sides in the top four places. Bilbao come into the weekend sitting fifth in the standings, but they are six points adrift of Barcelona, who currently sit fourth. But, the hosts will take confidence from their recent form in the competition. 

Bilbao have gone four matches without defeat in the Spanish competition, winning twice over that period. However, draws have been a slight hindrance to their progression, as they have been held on two occasions over the same period.  But, positives would have been taken from their recent draw, as they held on to a point against the high-flying Girona. Bilbao’s goal in that tie was netted by Inaki Williams with 20 minutes remaining.

There will be pressure on the visitors this weekend, as Rayo Vallecano look to bounce back to winning ways after failing to claim a victory in their previous four matches. However, over that period, they have picked up three draws, meaning that they have now played out a La Liga-high of seven ties in the competition this term. 

A return to winning ways on Sunday could see them end the weekend as high as eighth in the standings. Last weekend, Vallecano were excellent value for a point against the reigning champions, with Unai Lopez finding the net in a 1-1 draw with Barcelona. 

Athletic Club vs Rayo Vallecano Head to Head 

Bilbao are unbeaten in their previous three matches with Vallecano, landing two wins over that period. The latest match between the sides ended in a 0-0 draw in March. However, Vallecano has landed just one win in the previous nine meetings between the sides in La Liga. 

Athletic Club vs Rayo Vallecano Prediction 

Bilbao has an excellent record in this fixture, and they have shown some excellent performances across their recent outings in La Liga. Therefore, we will be siding with the home side picking up maximum points on Sunday.
