Real Madrid vs Barcelona: Prediction and Betting Tips
Injury-hit Real Madrid, looking for a win
Real Madrid prepared for this Saturday’s “El Classico” in the best way possible by beating Liverpool in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League 1st leg by 3-1 on Tuesday. Moreover, Zidane’s team are unbeaten in 12 matches in all competitions with ten wins among this run.
Zidane has crucial absences in his defense with captain Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal, and Rafael Varane are all unavailable for this match. Zidane has found the replacements for these players and it showed in their results as Real haven’t conceded more than one goal in a match for 12 games.
In the opposite fixture in Barcelona back in October, Los Blancos won 3-1 at the Camp Nou. Zidane will be relying heavily on his fellow countryman and attacker Karim Benzema who has scored 18 goals this season. The Frenchman is in a great scoring form and has scored six goals in the last four games in La Liga.
Barcelona chasing the double
Five wins in a row have seen Barcelona move up to the second position in the La Liga standings just one point behind leaders Atletico Madrid. The Blaugrana are unbeaten in 19 matches in La Liga and have ten wins on the road in 14 matches.
Ronald Koeman will hope this form continues in Madrid. Barca are chasing the local double after reaching the Copa del Rey final and with just one point separating them from the top of the league and the form they are showing recently after being eliminated from the Champions League, The Blaugrana believe they can accomplish the mission.
As always Messi has been the focal point of this amazing run for Barca. The Argentine has scored seven goals in six matches. Koeman’s team have been terrific in defense with four clean sheets in six matches and also in attack scoring 18 goals in the process.
- Real Madrid have won their last five home games
- Real Madrid have scored in their last 12 home games
- Barcelona have won the last six away games
- Barcelona have scored in all of their last six away games
Real Madrid vs Barcelona Prediction
This is one of the matches remaining in La Liga that could decide the identity of this season’s title winner. Both teams are in great form and have a big chance of ending this season crowned as champions. Atletico Madrid couldn’t withstand the pressure of both of the Spanish giants and now they could lose it all.
In their head-to-head, Real Madrid haven’t lost in three meetings, winning two and drawing one. Barcelona seem to be in a good position though to end that streak. We think it will be a grueling battle from both sides and we expect both of them to score.
