Football betting tips for Real Madrid vs FC Barcelona
The teams of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona face off against second-placed El Clasico this season. The match will be played on Sunday, March 1st from 10:00 pm at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.
The Real Madrid team seems shaky and has lost 3 of their last 5 games in all tournaments. This week, the Los Blancos allowed a 1-2 home loss to Manchester City in the first match between the two Champions League teams. Zinedine Zidane’s team took the lead in the second half with Isco’s goal, but allowed a complete turn and disappointed his fans.
The defeat came just days after last weekend’s loss to Levante in La Liga. In his last household, Real Madrid draw 2:2 against Celta de Vigo. Due to these poor results, Los Merengues lost the first position in the Spanish Championship. They are currently 2 points behind their upcoming rival Barcelona.
Quique Setién’s team is in much better shape with 3 wins in their last 4 games in all tournaments. The Catalans made a draw 1-1 at their visit to Napoli in the Champions League, before breaking Eibar 5-0 at home and topping the La Liga standings. Barcelona have won only 2 of their last 5 visits in all tournaments, but at the moment it looks as if there is a good chance of winning the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.
The first El Clasico for this season ended without a hit – 0-0 at Camp Nou. The two teams were disappointing in their attack plan in the first derby. In my opinion, there is no way to see a second consecutive goalless game between Real Madrid and Barcelona.
18 of the last 27 meetings between the two giants in Spain have offered hits on both doors and I’ll bet the BTTS option. In addition, you can also trust the double chance of X2, as Barcelona will probably lose the match given the problems of their opponent.
