Real Madrid have had plenty of unexpected slip-ups against lower-profile outfits in the top flight of Spanish football this term. They are nine points below Blaugrana as a consequence and this clash at Camp Nou is probably their last train to catch in the battle for the silverware. They will enter the tie on a high after another victory over Liverpool in midweek’s UEFA Champions League action. Can they make the season more dramatic with a victory in Barcelona? We will now take a look at our top betting picks and predictions for this match.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

Barcelona have posted some incredible defensive numbers in this term of La Liga. The fact they have allowed only 8 goals in 25 league matches seems surreal. However, Xavi’s troops have revealed their defensive liabilities against the strong teams on multiple occasions this season. Their back line succumbed when confronted by the likes of Bayern Munich (Champions League), Manchester United (Europa League), and Real Madrid (La Liga) this term.

However, Real Madrid did find goals hard to come by in the recent games. They have scored just two goals in four outings if we ignore the last weekend’s 3-1 home win over Espanyol. The run involves the 0-1 defeat at the hands of Barcelona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey semifinal 17 days ago. Add Barcelona’s incredible goal difference at Camp Nou this season (25-1) and you can see why Carlo Ancelotti should be worried ahead of this trip.

Barcelona won ten and drew one of the last eleven league outings at home

Barcelona go into this on the back of three consecutive 1-0 wins across competitions. Raphinha has been the main catalyst for the latest successes as his goals made the difference in the last two league clashes against Valencia and Athletic Bilbao. Robert Lewandowski has recovered from injury and is expected to lead the line for the Catalans on Sunday. With a run of ten wins and a draw in the last eleven league fixtures at home and with their win over Madrid at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu earlier this month, it is very hard to ignore the home win pick at the 23/20 odds.

Our Top Selection for El Clasico

Barcelona are chasing their fourth straight 1-0 victory

Real Madrid have failed to find the back of the net in successive clashes against Barcelona and Real Betis before putting three past Espanyol eight days ago. They are now up against the strongest defensive line in the league. The Catalans have shipped only one goal on the home patch since the beginning of the season in La Liga. Knowing the hosts have not quite impressed offensively in the last couple of weeks, we are very much tempted to take the 15/2 odds offered for the 1-0 correct score pick here.
