It's the big one, El Classico, Barcelona face Real Madrid in a match that is pivotal for La Liga title and we have free football betting tips.
Not all three points are created equal. Should Real Madrid beat Barcelona at the Bernabeu then Barcelona's chances of winnings La Liga will be all but over. Messi and co would be seven points behind Real Madrid with just ten league games remaining. A win for Barcelona however, and just a single point would seperate the great rivals. A draw though and Atletico Madrid are the big winners.
It is fair to say that Sunday night's El Classico will go a long way to determining the outcome of the three way tussle for the title.
Who will come out on top?
The visitors Barcelona go into this game after thrashing Osasuna 7-0 last week and overcoming a tame Man City in the match before that. Barca'a home form is outstanding. Their away form isn't. In there last two away games Barcelona lost to 1 nil to Valladolid and 3-1 to Real Sociedad. Barca's away form is poor. In case you missed it this match is at the Bernabeu.
Real Madrid by contrast are flying high. Carlo Ancellotti's men haven't lost in the league since they were defeated 2-1 by Barcelona 18 matches ago. At home, in all competitions, they have won 17 straight matches.
This form is reflected in the odds. A Real Madrid win is 6/5 at Bet365. The draw is 5/2 and the Barca victory is 21/10.
Real should win this game. They are flying high at home and Barca are poor away from the Camp Nou. Odds of 6/5 don't offer the best return though.
A much better bet is both teams to score and Real Madrid to win which comes in at 13/5 with bet365. Both sides have plenty of firepower at their disposal. With Madrid set to play an attack containing Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema and Barca to play a frontline including Sanchez, Messi and Neymar it is hard to see either side keeping a clean sheet.
As for goalscorers the odds on the likely suspects i.e. Messi and Ronaldo are not tempting. Ronaldo is 8/11 to score anytime on skybet. Whilst Messi is evens with the same provider. The best bet of the goalscorers is Neymar to score anytime at 12/5 with skybet. The Brazilian superstar was rested for the victory of Osasuna and so should be fresh for the weekend.
If you really fancy Ronaldo though, and he is in great form, it is worth looking at the odds of him scoring two or more. Ronaldo to score two or more is 3/1.
