Barcelona v Real Madrid
Live on Sky Sports 2 / Sky Sports 2 HD
European champions Barcelona have been in unstoppable form of late and have not been beaten in 23 outings in La Liga. Luis Enrique’s side are also an incredible 39 games undefeated in all competitions.
The basis of Barcelona’s good run of form has been their form at the Nou Camp, where they won their last seven in La Liga and failed to win just one of their last 15 games in the Spanish top-flight. Their last home league defeat in February 2015, when Malaga recorded a 1-0 win at the Nou Camp.
The home side have to be fancied for a victory in this clash and can be backed at odds of 8/13 with William Hill to defeat their perennial rivals.
Brazilian forward Neymar could be one to watch in this clash, as he has scored four times in his last three appearances for the Blaugrana and is odds of 9/2 with Ladbrokes to open the scoring in this clash.
Real Madrid will arrive in Barcelona in good spirits following four consecutive La Liga victories, but are still behind league leaders Barca by ten points and looking highly unlikely to catch Enrique’s team this season.
Zinedine Zidane’s team have been prolific in front of goal of late and have fired home 15 goals in their last La Liga outings, although the home side have scored the same amount of goals in their last four outings in La Liga. Los Blancos can be backed for the win at odds of 19/4 with Coral.
The draw would not be a terrible bet in this clash and that can be backed at odds of 18/5 at BetVictor.
Big Tip Barcelona are in fantastic form of late and I expect them to get the better of their rivals from the Spanish capital, so my big tip is the home win at odds of 8/13 with William Hill.
