Real Madrid CF

Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid look to extend their wonderful recent record in the El Clasico games. Real Madrid are the slight favorite among those keen on the top Real vs Barca 22/23 odds from reliable football bookies. Their recent successes in this match are a strong factor behind the same. Even though Los Blancos have not been at their absolute best so far this season, Ancelotti has ensured that the team consistently picks up points. This is the sign of a team that can go all the way in any league.

In 14 games against Barca, Ancelotti does not particularly shine in terms of wins after only picking up five wins from these matches. Surprisingly, this prediction is aware that four of those victories have been with Real Madrid over two spells.

Barcelona FC

Almost every top Spanish bookie has placed Barcelona as a longshot for winning the upcoming El Clasico. The Catalan outfit have had a difficult run in this fixture, with only one win in the four games. Their recent form has slumped, with one narrow win in the last three games in all competitions.

Barcelona find themselves in a tricky spot in the Champions League as well. Those who want to bet on Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona also have to be aware that the visitors have a big handicap in the form of several players being down with injuries.

Real vs Barca: H2H

Real Madrid come on the back of their heaviest defeat against Barcelona since 2018, as they were beaten 4-0 in the last meeting back in March. Since 2018, only four El Clasico meetings have produced less than 2.5 goals. But overall, Real Madrid has an advantage over their archrivals in the head-to-head contests, winning four out of five last games.

  • Real Madrid 0-4 Barcelona (20 March 2022)
  • Barcelona 2-3 Real Madrid (12 January 2022)

El Clasico 2022 Betting Tips and Predictions

Main Prediction: Draw @ 3.60 (13/5)

Real Madrid and Barcelona have witnessed certain slip ups over the last few games as they have not been producing their best in these matches. However, the La Liga 2022/23 recent form table puts the two teams at the top, with Barcelona managing a 100% win record in the last six matches, with Madrid only dropping two points during the same period. Even though the team from Madrid has dominated this fixture with four wins in the last five, our RCM – BFC betting tips would go with a draw considering that Madrid have not been playing at their absolute best. At the same time, the visitors are nursing injuries to key players.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Betting Bonus for La Liga 2022/23

Total Goals Over 2.5 @ 1.57 (4/7)

The Real vs Barca predictions anticipate a game with over 2.5 goals. The last five meetings between these two teams have produced over 2.5 goals quite comfortably, and both teams come into the game after having averaged over two goals per game in the last six matches.

Robert Lewandowski to Score Anytime @ 2.25 (5/4)

Robert Lewandowski is already the leading goalscorer for Barcelona by a significant margin. The 34-year-old has grabbed nine goals in just eight La Liga appearances this season. The Polish international’s experience in the big games makes him a strong candidate to help shorten the odds for Barcelona to win this game. The drop in form experienced by Karim Benzema makes Lewandowski a great choice for backing to score anytime in this match.

Real Madrid to Score First @ 1.66 (4/6)

The Real vs Barca predictions have seen Ancelotti’s team make excellent starts in recent weeks. The club from Madrid have been able to get the opening goal in the last five matches. The recent five El Clasicos have also met with a similar fate, and Madrid have been able to register the first goal in four out of the recent five meetings with Barcelona. The home advantage also presents a further case for backing the Whites.

Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 1.50 (1/2)

One of the big reasons fans are keen on the live stream coverage of Real Madrid vs Barcelona games, among all other Spanish Primera 22/23 games, would be the sheer entertainment these two teams provide. The Real Madrid vs Barcelona odds might be very short for backing both teams to score, but this is a match between two teams who remain offensively potent in all aspects of the game. Both have scored 13+ goals each in the last six matches.
