Real Madrid vs Barcelona Predictions
Real Madrid to Win @ 2.0 (Evs)
Real Madrid come to this game in better form than Barcelona. The Whites have only suffered one loss in their last 12 matches in all competitions, while Barcelona have lost two matches in a row now. Real Madrid are healthier, and the absence of Lewandowski will affect Barcelona.
Betting on Real Madrid in this game makes sense for many reasons. They are playing at home in the first leg and have minds about the revenge for their recent Spanish Super Cup loss to Barcelona.
Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 1.90 (9/10)
Both teams are in good scoring form. Real Madrid have scored an average of 3.5 goals per game in their last six matches in all competitions, while Barcelona are averaging 1.5 goals per game in the same period. Seven of the last eight El Classico have gone over the total.
Karim Benzema to Score @ 2.0 (Evs)
Benzema has been on fire lately, he has five goals and four assists in the last five games for Real Madrid. Karim has scored in four of the last six games against the Blaugrana.
Real M vs Barca Team News
Real Madrid will be missing both left defenders in the face of Alaba and Mendy. Rodrygo is questionable for this game.
The Blaugrana will be without Pedri and Dembele in this game, but most importantly, they are also without Lewandowski due to a muscle injury, as reports suggest. These are crucial players for Barca and will hurt their chances in this match.
