Barca vs Real Predictions
Barcelona to Win or Draw @ 1.40 (2/5)
FC Barcelona beat Real Madrid at home not too long ago, and they were the dominant side as Real Madrid struggled to match their intensity. The Blaugrana is even more relaxed ahead of this game after they snuck out a win in the first leg. FC Barcelona is unbeaten in their last five matches, scoring nine goals and conceding just once. Xavi Hernandez has transformed the team, and they are yet to lose a domestic game at home.
Real Madrid demolished Real Valladolid in their last game, but that is only their third win in seven matches. The Whites are winless in their last two games away from home, and it is very unlikely that they will beat Barcelona here. Backing the home team to win or draw is a safe bet on Spanish Cup 2022-23.
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.83 (5/6)
Real Madrid’s last two games have ended with three goals or more, while FC Barcelona also achieved that feat in their last two games. Both teams look to have discovered their scoring boots with big wins last week, and this game should see at least three goals.

A bet on the over 2.5 goals option has very good value on football bookies.
Total Corners – Over 10.5 @ 2.50 (6/4)
FC Barcelona’s possession style of football often sees them win a lot of corners in-game, while Real Madrid’s pacy wingers draw a lot of corners from their opponents.

FC Barcelona is averaging 5.9 corners per game, while Real Madrid has a slightly better rate at six corners per game. The bookmakers are offering very good odds here, and it’s worth backing this game to end with 11 corners or more.
