Pick a money-back bet for El Clasico
There’s another version of El Clasico this weekend as Real Madrid will pay a visit to the Nou Camp to take on Barcelona on Sunday, March 22. These are highly-charged matches any time the two sides meet, but this one should be as good as it gets since the clubs are fighting it out for first place in the Spanish La Liga. After 27 games Barcelona sits on top of the table just one point in front of their arch rivals.
Barcelona enters the contest with 21 victories, two draws and four defeats for 65 points. Real Madrid is right behind them with 64 points from 21 wins, a draw and five losses. Barcelona has scored 78 goals and allowed 16 against while Real Madrid has hit the back of the net 77 times and conceded 24. Both squads boast powerful offenses, but Barcelona’s defence is a touch better.
Barcelona has lost just twice since the turn of 2015 while Madrid has been beaten five times during the same period. Barcelona has also won nine of their past 10 league outings, but they’ve lost their last two meetings with Real. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo will likely play for the home side as Marc-André ter Stegen appears to play the cup games and Champions League matches only. Defender Sergio Busquets is expected to miss the game with an ankle injury and Javier Mascherano should take his spot.
