Atletico have been inconsistent in La Liga. They have won just twice in their last five outings, drawing once and losing twice in the process.

The inconsistency sees them sitting fourth on the table with 55 points. They are six points behind their opponents on Sunday, who have 61 points and sit third on the table.

Diego Simeone’s side also have a two-point cushion ahead of fifth-placed Athletic Club. Football predictions indicate that Atletico Madrid must continue winning, or they will run the risk of dropping out of the top four.

Diego Simeone will look to ride the high they got from eliminating Inter Milan from the Champions League to the clash against Barcelona at home, looking to cut the gap to third down to three points ahead of the run-in.

Barcelona Looking to Regain Consistency as They Bid to Chase Down Girona and Real Madrid in the Run-In

Barcelona have gone nine matches in all competitions without defeat. This good run of form has seen Xavi’s men steady their form in La Liga and explains why they are the football pick in this clash.

In their last five rounds of fixtures in La Liga, Barcelona have won three times and drawn twice, collecting 11 points, and dropping four in the process.

Barcelona will focus on getting the three points when they visit Atletico Madrid on Sunday as they bid to cut the gap to second-placed Girona and leapfrog them as they bid to mount a late title charge in La Liga.

With the gap to the top of the table standing at 8 points, Xavi will believe that it can be done, and his charges will focus on getting their form and consistency. Football bet predictions show that they will have a good chance of getting the three points from Madrid on Sunday.
