El Clasico happens this weekend as Barcelona travel to Madrid where Los Blancos will look to get a win over their long-time rival and put a bigger grip on the title. This game is always a big occasion around the footballing world and I don’t expect it to be any different this year as the two teams clash once again.
Barcelona were just knocked out of the Champions League against Juventus which means that the team confidence will be at a low at this moment. That being said, this team is still filled with superstars and they are still one of the best teams in the world. Barcelona will be without their Brazilian superstar Neymar for this game but they will still have Suarez and Messi which is still a very powerful duo.
Real Madrid won their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich and this team is filled with confidence. Cristiano Ronaldo is scoring again and the rest of the players are all playing good quality football at the moment. This team will be determined to get the three points here since there is a lot at stake with their pride and also for the end of season results.
I think Real Madrid will win here. This team is in better form at the moment and they will also have the home ground advantage. We are getting a pretty good price on this bet and as a result I think we should take it. Also, both teams to score seems solid as well since both teams have a ton of attacking talent going forward.
