Barcelona vs Real Madrid: best betting odds


    • Messi is expected to be out for three weeks after he suffered a fracture of his arm in last weekend's clash against Sevilla. Barcelona's president has since claimed he will make a sensational comeback for El Clásico, but the general consensus is that this would be medically impossible.
    • Samuel Umtiti is still out with a knee ligament injury. Vermaelen is unavailable so Lenglet will start with Pique in central defence.

    Expected Starting XI

    • M. ter Stegen
    • Cabral, Piqué, Lenglet, Alba
    • Rakitic, S.Busquets, Artur
    • P.Coutinho, L.Suárez, Dembélé

    Real Madrid

    • Real Madrid have lost four and drawn once on their last five fixtures.
    • They currently sit in seventh place in La Liga, the worst start to a La Liga season in seventeen years.
    • Marcelo will return to the squad after recovering from an injury.
    • Dani Carvajal will miss the game due to a calf injury.

    Expected Starting XI

    • Courtois
    • Odriozola, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo
    • Modric, Casemiro, Isco
    • Vasquez, Díaz mejía, Asensio

    Barcelona vs Real Madrid: Match Preview

    Real Madrid's start to the season has been nothing short of disastrous. and many believe that Julen Lopetegui will not last if Los Blancos lose against a Messi-less Barcelona on Sunday.

    There have been rumours that Messi will be able to return for the match, but this feels more like a PR stunt. It will be the first El Clásico in 11 years without either Messi or Ronaldo playing.

    It is not certain wether Bale will play against Barcelona, he was a sub for Real's win against Sevilla as he has been suffering from muscle fatigue.

    This may not be the most 'classic' of all the El Clásicos but in some ways it makes for one of the more intriguing clashes. A Real Madrid win could really turn their season around as well as save their manager's job. Barcelona are struggling to keep a clean sheet and we know that Real Madrid, if given the chance, will punish you.

    If the game fails to provide goals, we can always hope that there is some of the nastiness that has helped make El Clásico one of the most dramatic fixtures of the season.
