Real Madrid vs Barcelona Prediction and Betting Tips

LaLiga – Real Madrid vs Barcelona Prediction and Betting Tips. In the big derby in Spanish LaLiga, Real Madrid host Barcelona at Santiago Bernabeu. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona.

Real Madrid stand at the top of the table in Spanish football league and they are still the main candidate to win the title this season. They have three points more and one match less than FC Barcelona, so this game could be crucial for both sides. Home side would be satisfied with one point, because in that case the difference be the same, while Real will have additional match and an opportunity to make the difference bigger. Real is full of confidence after they eliminated Bayern Munich in the Quarter-finals of Champions League few days ago and in the Semi-finals they will face city rivals Atletico Madrid. Their manager Zinedine Zidane is full of optimism after they beat mighty club from Munich, but the match against Barca could be the real test for his players. Their main player Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick on that game and showed that he is probably the best player on the world in this moment. In the first part of the season the match between FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid was finished without winner (1-1), so it will be interesting who will be better in the second, and more important match.

FC Barcelona stand behind Real Madrid in LaLiga, but they still have a chance to win the title. If they lose this game, the title race will definitively be over, so visitors have no choice and have to win this game. Their moral is not on the high level in this moment after they failed to beat Juventus and were eliminated from the UEFA Champions League, so this match is the only one which left to show that they can do something this season. Also their manager Luis Enrique has the last chance to make something this season, because there are some rumors that he will definitely leave the club at the end of the season. Leo Messi, Neymar and Suarez haven’t manage to make something special against Bayern, so this could be a good chance to make something positive. It’s questionable are they all have recovered after that game, but they have no choice and have to attack home side from the beginning. Bad news for visitors is that Neymar is out due to suspension.

Team News

Home side miss Pepe and Varane, while Bale is doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Vidal, Rafinha and suspended Neymar, while Mathieu is doubtful.

Both sides will be fully motivated to win this game. Home team have an advantage of home field and even draw could satisfied them. An important fact you should consider is that both clubs have very important and tough games in Champions League, so they are little bit tired. However, I expect very interesting and open match between Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona and many goals in both nets.
