One of the biggest matches on the soccer schedule will take place this weekend, as the second El Clasico of the campaign will be staged at the Santiago Bernabeu. Both Real Madrid and Barcelona endured contrasting results in the Champions League in midweek, but the hosts could move eleven points clear at the summit if they are able to claim maximum points against their biggest rivals.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Odds

Real Madrid will be the favourites to claim victory in the second league El Clasico of the season this weekend at BetXchange, as they are currently priced up at 91/100.

A victory for Barcelona is available at 29/10, with the draw potentially being an interesting angle at 59/20. Both teams to score could also be an interesting selection at 13/25, while over 2.5 match goals is priced up at 14/25.

Head To Head Record

Real Madrid have bossed the league meetings between these sides throughout history, winning 78 of the 187 meetings in La Liga. Barcelona have recorded 74 victories.

However, recent wins for the Catalonian giants have been harder to come by, as they have won just twice in the last nine league meetings between the sides.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have recorded just one away win at the Bernabeu since the start of 2020. The latest meeting between the sides this term saw Real Madrid land a 2-1 success following a brace from Jude Bellingham in the final 22 minutes.

Real Madrid Preview

It has been a memorable week for Carlo Ancelotti and his Real Madrid side, and confidence within the camp will likely be sky high following their penalty shootout success over Manchester City in midweek. However, the Los Blancos players looked dead on their feet in the final minutes of the extra time period, which would be a concern ahead of this weekend.

Real sit eight points clear at the top of the standings with seven rounds of matches remaining in Spain, and they have suffered just a single defeat in 31 outings this term. Real have the best attacking and defensive records, and they come into El Clasico after winning each of their last four in the league.

Barcelona Preview

Xavi’s final El Clasico in charge of Barcelona will take place this weekend, and they will likely need to claim victory to stand any chance of catching their rivals in the race for the league title. However, unlike Real, Barcelona will quickly need to pick themselves up following a humbling Champions League experience in midweek after losing 4-1 at the Olympic Stadium against Barcelona.

Their league form remains solid coming into the weekend, as they have picked up victories in their last four matches in the competition. But, draws have been a recurring issue throughout the campaign this season, with no side in the top four having been held on more occasions than Barcelona.

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Prediction

Both of these teams had important Champions League matches in midweek, but the fact that Real’s fixture went the distance would be a concern. For that reason, we could see Barcelona bouncing back to form with a much-needed victory following their hammering at the hands of PSG.

Pick: Barcelona at 29/10 with BetXchange.
