Real Madrid vs Barcelona Betting Tip and Predictions. In the big Spanish derby (El Clásico) in Primera and one of the most interesting matches this week, Real Madrid host FC Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid stand at the second position with three points less than Barcelona, so in the case of win they could move up at the top of the table. Team from Madrid suffered the first defeat this season in all competition in the previous round when Sevilla beat them 3-2. Despite the fact that they conceded 3 goals in the last match, Real Madrid still have one of the best defences in the Primera, they have conceded 7 goals in 11 matches. On the other side, Real have the best attack in league in this moment. They scored 26 goals, one more than Barcelona. The big blow for home side is the absence of Benzema, but Cristiano Ronaldo, their best scorer, will lead the attack along Bale.
Barcelona stand at the top of the table and their main goal this season is to win the title. Despite the absence of Leo Messi, Barcelona showed the quality and played very good without him. Luis Suarez and Neymar scored together 20 goals and they keep Barca’s ambitions for this season. Good news for Barcelona are that probably the best player in the World, Leo Messi has recovered from an injury and will be available El Classico. Barcelona will play two very important match in only three days. First, they will face Real Madrid in Primera, while three days later they will play against AS Roma in the UEFA Champions League.
