Saturday’s El Clasico takes place at Camp Nou, where Barcelona hosts Real Madrid.

Before Betting on Barcelona vs. Real Madrid

Barcelona isn’t playing attractive football anymore. They are all about winning under Xavi, so 1-0 victories are nothing odd for this unit. Right now, they have three in a row with such result, and with the defense being the better part of the unit. 

Blaugrana has nine points more than the guests from Madrid, so even a draw is a perfect outcome for them. Knowing Xavi, he won’t be keen on going out there and trying to beat Real, regardless of the rivalry. 

Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0 last Wednesday, sealing a 6-2 aggregate victory over the Reds in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. Los Blancos ultimately prevailed despite Liverpool’s greater initiative, which is somehow the usual when they meet with top teams on the European stage.

The team from Madrid has nothing to lose here, and three points are a must. Their games away from home are inefficient, with only one of the past five seeing three or more goals.

This is a perfect game for under 2.5 goals because both Barca and Real aren’t very generous when it comes to goals under specific circumstances. Also, the stakes are high, so we won’t see too many risks from either side.
