Barcelona vs Real Madrid 6 May 2018: La Liga Soccer Preivew and Predictions

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

Real Madrid takes on Barcelona in a game which many will consider a dead rubber. Barcelona have won the La Liga title while Real Madrid only cares about the Champions League final at this stage of the season. Having said that, these are two strong teams and we should expect a great game.

Real Madrid might rest some of their key players such as Ronaldo and Kroos. This game will not impact the season but an injury will be an absolute disaster for the club. That being said, this will give the likes of Isco, Kovacic, and Bale opportunity to play which is not a massive downgrade. Real Madrid will be away from home for this game so that is something that the club will need to manage since playing at Camp Nou is never easy.

On the other side of the coin, this is the last important game for FC Barcelona this season and I expect the likes of Messi, Suarez, and Coutinho to be fully committed to winning. This has not been an easy season for FC Barcelona and winning this game will be good for the team, the manager, and the fans. At home, Barcelona are always hard to beat and with Real Madrid focussing on the Champions League, I see the home side leaving with all three point.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to wager on Barcelona to win and due to that reason, it is the wager which I am going to suggest. These games also tend to be full of goals so the over 2.5 goals is also a good looking bet.

 

Pick:
Barcelona
