Ingredients for an amazing final day of the season: Messi, Diego Costa, Neymar, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, the La Liga title on the line at the Camp Nou and some free football betting tips from thatsfreebettingtips.com.
In a fitting crescendo to a rollercoaster season everything comes down to the final game between Barcelona and Atletico. When points are equal La Liga isn't decided on goal difference, but on head to head record.
The equation therefore is simple, if Barcelona win they are champions. A draw or an Atletico win and Diego Simeone's men are champions.
The odds for this one are intriguing. A Barcelona win is 5/6 with bet365. A draw is 13/5 and a Atletico win is 7/2 with the same provider.
Those odds are incredibly harsh on Atletico. The media narrative seems to be focusing on how many games Madrid have played and how tired they must be. After all the argument goes over eight Atletico players have played over 8000 minutes this season in what has already been a 59 game season. How much have they got left in the tank?
The problem with this criticism is that it has been thrown at Atletico all season. Many, me included, thought they would drop off the league and European charge not long after the New Year, but here they sit top of the table in the UCL final.
True, their form has dropped off in recent weeks. They could have finished La Liga off last week if they had beaten Malaga, but the same can be said of Barcelona who have also been dropping points. Two draws in two games. The first away to Elche, the second at home to Getafe.
Barcelona are 5/6 then essentially because of their home form and Atletico's historically poor Camp Nou history.
Atletico haven't got a league point away in Barcelona since 2006. However, Atletico don't fear to tread at the Camp Nou this season. They drew 1-1 at Barcelona in the Champions League quarter final and are undefeated in five matches against Messi and co this season. A repeat of these results would give Atletico the title.
The draw at 13/5 or the Atletico win at 7/2 are both great offers. Especially, when you consider that the game situation is perfectly set up for Diego Simeone's style of play. Atletico are a team that like to sit back, keep things tight and counter attack. Fortunately for them that style of play is exactly what the situation calls for.
As for other bets Diego Costa to score is available at 21/10 to score anytime with betvictor. The Spaniard look set to be fit to play and you wouldn't put your faith in Barcelona's centre backs from keeping him under wraps.
An even better bet though is the correct score. In five games this season Atletico have won 1-0 once with there being two 0-0 draws and two 1-1 draws. I see both teams scoring in a low score draw. A 1-1 draw is 13/2 with William Hill.
As I said before though this game is perfectly set up for Atletico Madrid to play on the counter-attack. Whereas, Barcelona need a win and will have to go for it. The half time/full time market has lots of value with a half time draw/ full time Madrid win coming in at 9/1 with betvictor.
