BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday night, Real Madrid and Barcelona go head-to-head at the Santiago Bernabeu, in what could be a fascinating El Clasico in La Liga.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team look to be running away with the Spanish title. Los Blancos are now ten points clear of second-place Sevilla. A 3-0 win at Mallorca last time out in La Liga, means that the team from the Spanish capital have now recorded four straight wins in the Spanish top-flight. The league leaders are also unbeaten in eight league outings, having recorded six wins in the process.
A strong defence has played a key role in Real Madrid’s recent good results, as Los Blancos have kept clean sheets in five of their last six matches in La Liga, having conceded just once in the run.
The Blaugrana’s revival under club legend Xavi continued last time out, as the visitors recorded a resounding 4-0 victory over Osasuna at the Nou Camp. The win means that Barcelona are unbeaten in 12 matches in La Liga, having won their last four league matches.
January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has hit scoring form in recent games, scoring five goals in his last four La Liga appearances for his new team.
The visitor’s recent good league form has moved Barcelona up to third-place and they are now just five points behind second-place Sevilla, with a game in hand on the Andalusians.
The Blaugrana are unbeaten in ten away matches in La Liga, winning three of their last four league matches in the Spanish top-flight.
