Barcelona were suprisingly beaten at home by unknown Hercules in La Liga last weekend but bounced back to form in the Champions League immediately by beating Panathinaikos 5-1 . Athletico Madrid have won both their La Liga games so far but were beaten in the Europa League on Thursday by Aris Salonika . Barcelona are best price 8/11 with 888Sport to win in the Vicente Calderon and it promises to be a cracking match, due to the phenomenal attacking talent in both sides. Lionel Messi was outstanding for Barcelona in the Champions League and will be supported in attack by arguably the world’s best striker, David Villa. Villa has already shown some terrific form for Barcelona and the £30M price tag has hindered the striker at all . Villa is 7/2 to open the scoring with 888sport and the same price is available for Messi with Paddy Power . Diego Forlan was named player of the tournament in the 2010 World Cup and the south american striker is always very threatening . Both teams to score looks a good bet in this game , in the two La Liga matches between the two sides last season there were an incredible 10 goals but the value lies in opposing this as it is no value at 1/2 . Paddy Power offer 13/8 that both teams do not score and this is worth an interest . The match is a 6pm kick off on Sunday
