Location: Camp Nou
It is a rather occurrence on Saturday afternoon in La Liga. Neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid are looking ready for El Clásico, having both suffered defeat in their last league games. Real were also beaten in the Champions League on Wednesday night, meaning that despite their own problems, Barcelona will fancy their chances of getting a home victory.
Zinedine Zidane’s side’s major issue has been scoring goals. Only once in six games have they netted more than two in 90 minutes, which is very uncharacteristic, while failing to at all twice.
They’ll need to be better in front of goal against Barça, who have scored three or more four times in six. Home advantage, despite no fans, means we are backing Barcelona at 19/20 with Bet365.
Why are we backing Barcelona here?
Simply put, they have much more firepower. These games have often been decided by the attacks; 15 of the last 20 meetings have ended with over 2.5 goals.
You can back those odds at 8/11 with Bet365. In 13 of the last 17, but not the last three, BTTS has been the way to go. Back that at 8/13.
What other markets are worth a look?
You’ll want value, and the goalscorer markets are the ideal place for that in our opinion. Lionel Messi has scored more goals than anyone in this fixture and is at 3/1 to score first with Bet365.
Ansu Fati scored in midweek and for Spain lately, and he can be backed at 7/4 with Bet365.
Odds correct as of 22/10/2020
