Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid LaLiga 2022 Match Prediction Match Prediction,Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News and Preview.
Barcelona are in the midst of their joint-best unbeaten league run this season (W3, D3).
Though the prior six-game streak was swiftly brought to a halt by a 2-0 loss to Atlético Madrid, a result which made it three straight La Liga (LL) H2Hs without a goal for Barça!
As manager Xavi Hernández gets ready for his first LL H2H in the dug-out.
He’ll be looking to avoid emulating Frank Rijkaard who was in charge when Atlético last did the season double over the Catalans in 2005/06.
Players to watch:
Both of Frenkie de Jong’s league goals this season have been match-opening strikes, including in his side’s last LL outing.
Contrastingly, João Félix has scored Atlético’s last goal with both his LL strikes this season.
The away team on the day hasn’t scored before half-time in 16 of the last 18 LL H2Hs.
Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, Samuel Umtiti, Eric Garcia and Alejandro Balde are still out injured.
Clement Lenglet is a fresh blow, while Memphis Depay is a doubt.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is eligible to play following his free transfer from Arsenal, as is Adama Traore following his move. It’s unlikely either player will start so quickly.
Antoine Griezmann remains out and Marcos Llorente are nearing returns, but they remain doubts here.
Geoffrey Kondogbia is also a doubt having returned from suspension.
New signing Daniel Wass could cover at right-back given the uncertainty over Llorente.

Barcelona win or draw 1.33 Atletico have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches (LaLiga).
Atletico are undefeated in their last 5 matches against Barcelona in all competitions.
Barcelona are on cloud nine following a rather successful January transfer window, snapping up Ferran Torres, Adama Traore and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Blaugrana have had a disappointing season thus far, falling away from the La Liga title race swiftly.But they will fancy their chances of landing a top four spot on the back of their winter additions.
They come into this one just one point behind Atletico Madrid.Who are currently in fourth – following a narrow win over Alaves before the break, winning 1-0 thanks to a Frenkie de Jong winner.
That followed a Copa del Rey defeat to Athletic Club and a Super Cup loss to Real Madrid.
Atletico Madrid picked up a much-needed win last time out, beating Valencia 3-2 thanks to goals from Matheus Cunha, Angel Correa and Mario Hermoso, with the final goal coming in the 93rd-minute.
That win followed three games without a win, losing to Real Sociedad in the Copa del Rey and Athletic Club in the Spanish Super Cup.
Los Rojiblancos will be desperate to keep hold of their top four spot, and a win here will go a long way towards doing that.
A draw is the most likely result, though.
