Real Madrid Vs Barcelona Predictions
As a Real Madrid fan, I would proudly say HALA MADRID! , but, Barcelona are chasing the league leaders by 3 points which means the tie can be intense and the result can simply be a stalemate. Previously the two teams have met on 173 occasions securing the following results:
While Real Madrid are in sublime form and come into Clásico with a victory over the mighty Bayern Munich, Barcelona come into the Clásico fixture losing out a UCL Semi-Final place to the finesse of Juventus. Real Madrid have a considerably better home win ratio at the Bernabéu scoring more goals against their Catalan rivals.
SkySports Spanish football pundit Guillem Balagueanalysis establishes that Barcelona have an “abysmal” away record against stronger competition. Real Madrid however, have been sublime thanks to the might of their captain and crusader Cristiano Ronaldo. Madrid have not lost a single game in their last 10 matches, whereas Barcelona have lost 3 of their last 10 matches, the last one coming against 15th placed Malaga.
Barcelona will also come to the Santiago Bernabéu without the services of Neymar who was red carded in the match against Malaga. There is great news for Real Madrid who will see Gareth Bale back into the starting 11 to bolster their attack come Sunday.
