Welcome to our Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Two matches into the season and four teams have extracted maximum points and are at the top of the league. Two of them clash today. Atletico won at home to Las Palmas by a solitary goal, but then put Sevilla in their place with a 3 goal romp. Barcelona started with a win at Athletic Club by a single goal. They then went on to win at home against Malaga, again by one goal. They are therefore behind Atletico on goal difference. They will want to ramp up and enforce their superiority in this match, but Atletico have a knack of not letting the big two in the Spanish league have it all their way.
