Reasons for betting on Barcelona vs Real Madrid tip
Barcelona and Real Madrid already played one El Clasico during this summer. But the current situation is much different, and now we have a trophy at stake. Real Madrid will have a chance to secure the second piece of silverware in just five days. Meanwhile, Barcelona can prevent this and enter the new season with a boosted morale after defeating their greatest enemy. The game will take place at Camp Nou, and Barcelona will have an enormous support.
Blaugrana had had an excellent preseason period. In 5 matches they have recorded 4 victories and only one draw. At first, they defeated Juventus, 1-0, Manchester United afterward, and then beat their next opponent with 3-2. In the most recent match, they have demolished Chapecoense with 5-0. But the big question is who is going to replace Neymar? Currently, all eyes and focus of the club are on this enigma, and many players are involved in the negotiations. Phillipe Coutinho is the first pick, but the situation with the Brazilian is very complicated. 5-time European champion has to react quickly because the season is about to start. Barcelona is very hot at the moment, as they have 14 straight games without a defeat. The run which stretches back all the way until the end of the previous season. 8 of the preceding 10 game ended with over 2.5 goals.
Real Madrid overview
After three straight defeats at the opening of the preseason and poor performances, Real Madrid has shown why they are the biggest team in the world. When they were needed the most, they played solid and defeated Manchester United in the European Super Cup this Tuesday in Skopje. That was not one of the best performances by Los Blancos but eventually, they got what they wanted. Cristiano Ronaldo is still not fit for the whole 90 minutes, but nevertheless, his presence on the field has a tremendous impact. Real Madrid allowed a goal in the previous 6 games. Also, both teams have scored in all those matches.
Head to head matches
In the past 5 games, Barcelona has 3 victories, while Real Madrid only one. And in the previous 3 games, Real hasn’t won.
Also, in the last 20 El Clasico’s, Real Madrid allowed at least one goal. Only one match hasn’t seen over 2.5 goals in the previous 10 meetings.
However, the newly appointed coach of the Barcelona Ernesto Valverde has only won victory against Zinedine Zidane. On the other hand, the French legend has 3. This will be Valverde’s first game against Real as a Barcelona coach.
When it comes to betting on this match, we will follow the tradition and pick over 3.5 goals. In our opinion, this is the most attractive thing in this match.
Besides this, over 1.5 goals in the first half time are something that often happens when Barcelona and Real Madrid clash. The odds on this outcome are very good, and we would recommend it.
