Match Preview

Real Madrid

Real Madrid doesn’t enjoy one of the most successful seasons, sitting in the third spot of Primera Division with 43 points, 15 behind Barcelona. The team has only two things left to win this season, Copa del rey, which this game is part of and Champions league. While many still believe the title can be won, 15 points difference is a lot. Real Madrid got to this stage of the tournament after losing the away match to Celta Vigo, then wining the home one with 4-0, then facing Valencia, winning the home match with 2-0 and drawing the away one 1-1. A victory on Bernabeu would be required as the visit on Cam Nou will not be pleasant. The odds for Real Madrid to win this match are @ 2.90 which means they are priced slightly higher than Barcelona. The first El Clasico for this season was for Primera Division a match that ended 2-2 on Camp Nou. When it comes to this great derby, we believe that the probability of all three outcomes are the same. The one that holds most value is the draw, therefore we suggest you go for it @ 3.60

Barcelona

Barcelona are having a good season, already ahead in Primera Division with 11 points and from how it looks right now, the title is in their hands. The team will have the opportunity to win Copa Del Rey and Champions League as well. To get to this stage of the tournament, Barcelona faced Cordoba, winning both games with aggregate score 7-0. The second opponent they faced was Malaga, and after a surprising 2-2 on Camp Nou, the team managed to win the away match with 4-2. Now once again they will face Real Madrid, but this time it wont be at the final. Barcelona are priced to win this match @ 2.30, a favorite for the match, despite their inability to win over Real in the past 2 meetings, with the latest victory with 3-2 for the Super Cup on Camp Nou. Each of the past 5 games saw at least 3 goals, therefore we suggest you go for that Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.44 as the safest betting option for this derby.

Verdict

The safest betting option for this game would be backing the Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.44. In the last 5 games between both teams there were at least 3 goals per game. If we scroll even further, it turns out that in the last 8 games both teams have scored more than 2 goals combined.

While this is a derby and it can go either way, we believe the most valuable bet here would be the draw @ 3.60 as it has similar probability of coming out and much higher odds than the other two.
