Bookings Tips | Barcelona v Atletico Madrid | 5th April 2016 | BT Sport Europe


A massive match at the Nou Camp on Tuesday and Gavin Murphy (@GamePlanGavin) reckons there’s some card value kicking about.

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid | Tuesday 19:45 | BT Sport Europe

The opportunities come thick and fast for cards punters this week with plenty of crunch encounters. Barcelona will look to bounce back from defeat in El Classico as they host the other big Madrid outfit, Atletico, in Champions League quarter final first leg action.

Dr Felix Brych gets the job of keeping these two teams in check. I was surprised to see that he has dished out 29 cards in just four Champions League games so far this season. That is an average of 7.25 cards-per-game. Very high indeed!

The past five meetings between these two teams are also encouraging with the card count reading as 8-4-8-15-6. My colleague Mark O’Haire has confirmed that over the past six games there has been an eye watering 44 yellows and four reds!

Atletico played Real Madrid at the same stage of the competition last season and there were five cards given in a drab 0-0 first leg.

Barcelona don’t do 0-0 so I expect more cards in this one especially given the referee stats.

At the time of writing, only one firm are giving prices but it looks fair value. Back Over 5.5 cards with Bet365 on their Asian line.

I first got interested in gambling through my cousin. He's a professional gambler and got me hooked as a teenager when you had to pay the 9% tax. Who remembers that?! These days I prefer to specialise on one market rather than spread myself too thinly. Hence my love of cards! Hopefully I can make others a few bob in the process of sharing my bets on WeLoveBetting. On a personal note I love most sports especially cricket, rugby and NFL. I support Tottenham and all things Welsh and outside of sport I enjoy reading autobiographies particularly with a glass of good wine!
