Barcelona vs Real Madrid Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in five of Barcelona’s last six games
  • There have been three or more goals with both teams scoring in three or Real’s last four matches
  • The last three meetings between these two have seen both teams score and 3+ goals

Barca beginning to click under Xavi

Barcelona had a sticky start to life under Xavi, but they enter this clash unbeaten in six competitive fixtures, registering three wins and three draws.

The new boss had plenty of success in El Clasico during his playing days, but this is an altogether different kettle of fish and their defensive issues raise cause for concern.

Across those six games, Barca have kept only one clean sheet, while both teams have scored in six of their last seven matches, as well as a friendly against Boca Juniors in mid-December.

Real back in form

After their shock draw with Cadiz and even more surprising defeat to Getafe, Real Madrid have bounced back with wins over Alcoyano in the Copa del Rey and Valencia in La Liga.

There are still some concerns over their defence, who have conceded in four successive games, with three of those matches containing three or more strikes.

As always, El Clasico will be a fascinating encounter, but Real certainly have the wood over Barca in the recent renewals of this old rivalry, coming into the clash unbeaten in five matches against the old enemy.

I think there will be plenty of goals in this one. Both teams are strong going forward, so I predict both teams to score and three or more goals in the match, but think the visitors could come out on top, so select 2-1 to Real as a correct score.
