EUROPE’S biggest game of the weekend is Atletico Madrid v Barcelona (7pm) and hopefully there will be goals galore.

The sides are locked at the top of La Liga with Real Madrid three points back. So it’s a night to have a punt, crack open a bottle of San Miguel and enjoy.

Diego Costa has netted in all nine home league games so will be the man to watch for Atletico as usul while Lionel Messi came off the bench after a two-month injury absence to net twice against Celta Vigo in midweek and is 7-4 (various) to hit the opener.

The last nine meetings at Vicente Calderon have seen both score. That’s the call at 11-20 at McBookie with over 3.5 goals having a chance at 7-4.

    From your write up you suggest 2-2. I’m along the same thinking but don’t think there will be as many goals. I’m going with 1-1 as I think atletico will keep it tight and hit barca on the counter. Games between the 2 this season have finished 0-0 and 1-1. And I watched Real Madrid atletico earlier in the season which finished 1-0 to atletico. Atletico will look to play on the break and costa can get his goal but barca have more then enough about them to score

    Barça’s starting XI: Valdés, Alves, Piqué, Mascherano, Jordi Alba, Sergio, Xavi, Iniesta, Pedro, Cesc and Alexis

    On the bench: Pinto, Bartra, Song, Messi, Neymar, Adriano and Sergi Roberto

    With messi and neymar on the bench, the tight games previous and Madrid soaking up pressure early on, could 5/4 on draw at ht be a decent shout?

      mike, tipped a draw – that’s 4 out of 5 draw tips today and I did them all. Didn’t have benefit of seeing teams or wouldn’t have gone for goals.

    How many times have you looked forwards to a big game only for it to be a big let down, i for one can’t wait for next season when the biggest game in this country is going to be Rangers v Hearts…

    • raaljaca 7 years ago

      Spot on Davie, a huge match with plenty at stake in a league where nobody will walk away with it.

    • Davie-S 7 years ago

      Yip we don’t do walking away.. soz guys couldn’t resist..

    • Mr Fixit 7 years ago

      Davie-S, exactly. People who waited for teams would have been more inclined to go unders but no one would have thought 0-0.

  11. Yesevil 7 years ago

    Didn’t notice you offering up any tips for the game Mike. No-one forces anyone to bet on them. If you did put money on them then you obviously thought that they had a good chance of coming in.
    Unfortunately Tipping and Gambling aren’t exact sciences.

    I for one am thankful to Mr F, and other tipsters who contribute to this site, for their hard work, effort and research. They do it all for free.

  12. Davie-S 7 years ago

    If you backed Mr F’s tips on the game wisely you would still come out in profit Mike what more do you want?

  13. Walker2491 7 years ago
