FC Barcelona v Real Madrid, Match Preview & Betting Tips

Today: Tue 12

The clash of the October takes place on a Sunday afternoon, and it is El Clasico. The loudest clash in Spain between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid. Both teams will face at Camp Nou, but this match will be a new history because it will be first El Clasico without Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi. Both teams need points, and it is crucial for them to beat their rival, so we expect a lot of exciting moments.

FC Barcelona

The hosts will play the classic in Spain without their star Leo Messi because of his injury. He got some arm problems after the fault in the match against Sevilla, and it will be a big difference for Barcelona to play without him. Barcelona finally played as a team which is the best in Spain, and they beat Sevilla with the high result of 4:2. It pretty well executed by the hosts, but the second half without Leo was not as good as the first was. Messi played only 26 minutes, and he created at least four opportunities to score. They get two goals, and they were leading with the result of 2:0. The second half was well opened for them as they get the penalty, and Suarez scored the third goal. They conceded two goals in the late of that clash because of own goal and Muriel scored the second for Sevilla in the 92nd minute. The El Clasico can be pretty well the opportunity for the players like Dembele to show that he is good enough to beat Real Madrid, and it will be a tough test for the other players if can they beat their biggest rival without Messi. Barcelona is favorite to win this clash, but we think that it will not be so easy to play without their playmaker. We expect that they will score at least one goal, but it is hard to say if they can take three points in El Clasico.

Real Madrid

The crisis in the team is large, and the atmosphere inside is getting worse. Another loss against Levante was probably the last match for Lopetegui, but the boss of Real did not say that he will fire him. It was the fourth loss in their last five meetings, and the situation of Real is poor. They got four points gap to the leader of the league which is Barcelona, and if they will not beat them in El Clasico, it will increase to seven points. It can be another lost season for Real Madrid as in the previous, and they will not win the title again. Real Madrid got a lot of trouble inside their squad, and Bale is not prepared to play the whole game, so we don't expect that they will beat Barcelona even that the hosts will play without Messi.
