Real Madrid head into the weekend trailing league leaders Barcelona by nine points in the table. A defeat in this one will pretty much wipe out their slim title hopes. Real Madrid have won six of their last seven league outings, last weekend taking a 2-1 away win at Levante. Their overall home form is W8 D1 L3 this season. They were totally schooled in midweek in the Copa del Rey by Barcelona though which has to be a big worry for them.

Gareth Bale has avoided a ban for a celebration gesture recently which could have gotten him into hot water. Real Madrid were upset in their last league home game as they were beaten 2-1 by Girona. Real Madrid have only averaged 1.5 goals per home fixture this season in La Liga, which is nothing special by their standards. Only 33% of their league home games have gone over 2.5 goals.

Barcelona had a really strange game at home against Real Betis before the international break as they lost 3-4.

Out on the road in La, Liga Barcelona are W3 D1 L1 for the season. They have won just one of their last three away games though (D1 L1).

This is one of the most anticipated fixtures in European football, but strangely it is missing a little something.

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona head into weekend action at the top of La Liga with a W5 D3 L1 record. They were winless in four before the international break but responded with a 4-2 win over Sevilla on their return to action last weekend. That was a top-two battle them as well. Barcelona will be defending unbeaten home form this season in the league and they have scored at least two goals in all but one of those games.

Over 2.5 goals is at 8/15 odds for the game* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 10:23 pm). There are plenty of stats to back that up as 80% of Barcelona’s home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and 60% of them have made it even further over 3.5 goals. Barcelona themselves have averaged 3.6 goals per home game this season for a total of 18 in four games.

They have had their issues defensively though because after opening with back to back clean sheets, they have not earned one in any of their last seven league games now in the top flight. Both teams to score is at 1/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 10:23 pm). Of that massive 18 goal tally at the Nou Camp, twelve of them have been in the second half of their matches.

Lionel Messi has a fractured arm so is out and that leaves Luis Suarez at 10/3 odds and as the favourite in the first goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 10:23 pm). Given his scoring form, that is a blow for Barca to miss Messi, who is the all-time goal-scoring leader in the history of the Clasico with 26 goals and fourteen assists.

Barcelona v Real Madrid Head to Head

For the first time since 2007, neither Messi or Ronaldo will be appearing in a Clasico
Barcelona have won four of their last six games against Madrid (D1 L1)
In their last four at the Nou Camp against Madrid, Barcelona are W1 D2 L1
Both teams have scored in eight of the last ten league clashes
13 of the last 15 between them in all competitions have produced at least 3 goals in each

Real Madrid News and Form

Real Madrid are struggling at the moment. In La Liga, they are winless in four with a terrible D1 L3 record including shock losses against Alaves and Levante. They were D1 L4 in all competitions before an unconvincing home win over Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League in midweek. That’s three goals in their last six games in all competitions, and two of those have been from defender Marcelo. Overall Los Blancos are W4 D2 L3 this season and are only W1 D1 L2 away from the Bernabeu.

So with some clear problem in scoring (one goal in four league games) a Barcelona 2-1 correct score is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 10:23 pm). The recent head to head still points to Madrid getting on the scoresheet. Los Blancos have faced two for the current top four away from home and have lost both games without scoring. In total, they have come up with five away goals, while they have conceded six goals on their travels.

They don’t have a clean sheet away from the Bernabeu so far and in last season’s campaign after nine games, Real Madrid were six points better off than they currently are. Gareth Bale is their 13/10 shortest priced anytime goalscorer option* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 10:23 pm). Just to highlight their lack of scoring this season, they equalised a record last year for scoring in 73 consecutive games. They have failed to score in four of their nine league outings this season.

Who will win – Barcelona v Real Madrid Predictions

We can’t look past Barcelona and although Real Madrid are struggling for goals, we are going to back both teams to score here. But Barcelona look in much better shape in terms of depth than their rivals do and heap more misery on Madrid.

Draw 9/2
Sevilla 13/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 17th, 2018 at 9:00 p.m.)


Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona have slipped to a surprising D3 L1 run of form in their last four games. So they need to really pick themselves up as they return to action. This is a great game in which to do it as they would climb back to the top of the table with a win. Barcelona have drawn their last two home games in the league, games against Girona and Atheltic Bilbao. This is a big period for them because the following weekend they will be meeting with Real Madrid in El Clasico. Barcelona to win by a one-goal margin is at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm).

The reason that appeals is because is six of their last eleven wins over Sevilla have been by the one goal (all competitions). Barcelona have scored 14 goals at home this season (average 3.5 per game) so they do have the scoring power in them of course. Lionel Messi is the 9/4 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm). He has five league goals in four home appearances this season. Definitely, because the Catalans are conceding at the moment, it is worth looking at both teams to score.

Sevilla News and Form

Sevilla have taken everyone by surprise then as they were the leaders at the international break. That was after a four-match winning streak out of the blue. They had only gone W1 D1 L2 in their opening four games of the season. But they have switched on the scoring power and have returned fourteen goals in their last four games. Over 3.5 goals is at 8/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm). They can challenge here.

Sevilla are W3 L1 in their last four road games, winning their last two. They have averaged over three goals per game away from home this season. This will be their first away game this season against a side in the top six, but they did hammer Real Madrid 3-0 at home back at the end of September. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games. Andre Silva, Wissam Ben Yedder are the ones who are firing them along with goals. Given the way they are playing, seeing them cover a +1.50 Asian Handicap looks a great option at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 17th, 2018 at 5:17 pm).

Barcelona v Sevilla Head to Head

Barcelona have won four of the last five meetings with Sevilla in all competitions (D1) so they do have the head to head form going. Three of those four wins there were only by a 2-1 scoreline. Each of the last six have produced at least three goals between these two and Barcelona are on a five-match winning streak at home in the league against Sevilla.

Who will win – Barcelona v Sevilla Predictions

We are going to back Barcelona to come up with something in now what is a big game for them. Because of some tight tussles with Sevilla recently, we are going to back the home win by a one goal margin.
