While choosing a bet it’s worth keeping in mind the fact that Barcelona are extremely dangerous at home. They may have troubles playing on the road, but they have 7 wins in a row in all competitions at Camp Nou. In addition, these victories were more than convincing with 31 goals scored and only 4 conceded. The betting experts pay attention to the selection problems in Madrid’s team. Oblak, Tiago, Fernandez and Gimenez will miss the return game. At the same time Iniesta and Busquets are doubts for Blaugrana.

The bookmakers don’t have any doubts about the team reaching the Copa del Rey final: Barcelona – 1,06, Atletico Madrid – 10,00. They also think Barca will get another win at Camp Nou: Barcelona – 1,58, Draw – 4,20, Atletico Madrid – 5,75. Los Colchoneros couldn’t secure a positive result at home, so they are unlikely to get a win on the road. Thus, it is recommended to bet on “Asian Handicap Barcelona -1” (1,91). Besides, you may try to bet on “Total Goals by Home Team over 2” (2,15).
