Real Madrid vs Barcelona Predictions
Karim Benzema to Score @ 2.10 (11/10)
The odds for Benzema to score in El Classico are pretty good. Karim, with a goal, will be the second-highest scorer in the Spanish Super Cup all-time list behind Leo Messi. Benzema has scored six goals in the last six matches for Madrid in all competitions, failing to score only once in those matches. He is on penalties too, which gives him a huge advantage.
Real Madrid to Lift the Trophy @ 1.95 (19/20)
Real Madrid are one title behind Barcelona in this competition and will give their best effort not to increase the gap between them and Barcelona. Real Madrid odds on this one are great, especially since they are in good form, winning four of their last five matches. This is a safer bet than the Real Madrid victory because they can also win in extra time or penalties in this bet.
Total Goals – Over 3.5 @ 2.75 (7/4)
Real Madrid vs. Barcelona always has a lot of goals. The last three matches between them have 13 goals, so they are averaging 4.33 goals a match in this period, and those are nice odds for that to happen again.
