It is the most important football game in Spain and certainly one of the greatest games in the world: the Clásico between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Barcelona vs Real Madrid Betting Predictions and Odds
The game should actually take place on October 26, 2019. However, because of the violent unrest in the Catalan capital since the arrest of the separatists who promoted the independence referendum that was declared illegal in 2017, the game was postponed for safety reasons.
So if the two top clubs from La Liga are facing each other, both of which are at the top of the current table with 35 points, then everything is hoping that football will really be in the foreground. After all, the guests, as representatives of the Spanish capital, embody the great enemy of the proud Catalans, so to speak.
Barcelona is favored against Real Madrid in the odds of bookmakers, which is due to the strong home record in Camp Nou. Barca won all seven home games in La Liga with a score of 30: 9.
However, the Blancos lost only one of their 16 league games (record) and, with just 12 goals conceded from 16 games, also brought the second best defense in the country, which is an important factor for Barcelona against Real Madrid for the prediction.
We can well imagine that there will be a phase of scanning before the match becomes the fight everyone expects in the second half. Accordingly, our tip against Barcelona against Real Madrid is that both teams will score at least one goal in the second round.
Barcelona – statistics & current form
Most recently, FC Barcelona have taken two dominant wins in a row and are safe for the Spanish championship, thus consolidating national supremacy. The fact that the trend after the title hat trick of these days is not yet apparent is primarily due to the away games.
While the Blaugrana finally won all seven league games at home in Camp Nou, there are only four wins in the distance with nine away games. Also on Saturday, the reigning national champions away from Real Sociedad two points.
It was Marc-André ter Stegen, who was so highly praised in the Spanish press and celebrated as “Messi with gloves” that Erreala missed and served the goal of 2: 2 compensation on the silver platter. Anyway, the back team is the Achilles heel of the Catalans again this season.
20 goals conceded from 16 league games definitely do not represent a shooting gallery, but this is only the sixth best value across the league. No other team currently holding an international starting place conceded more goals.
But no other team scored even as many goals as the Catalans, who have played 43 times in 16 games. In addition to the new Ballon d’Or winner Messi, who has scored twelve times, Luis Suárez and newcomer Antoine Griezmann also stand out regularly and together they are probably the most formidable attack trio in Europe.
In order for Barcelona to beat Real Madrid against the next home win of the Catalans, they must now be back against the Blancos. In any case, it is an advantage that all players in the Ernesto Valverde squad are defensively operational.
The Blaugrana should not lack motivation. Not only does the 26-time Spanish champion smell the chance of hitting the record champions in the championship fight by three points. The players are also eager to defend the Catalan honor in this prestigious duel.
After all, Piqué, Busquets, Jordi Alba, Sergi Roberto, Carles Alená and Carles Pérez were all born in Catalonia. Players who were born in another part of Spain are nowhere to be found in the Blaugrana squad. Against this background, politics is likely to play a role on the lawn in some form.
Best scorers in the league:
🏆 Messi (12 goals)
🏆 Luis Suarez (9 goals)
Probable lineup of Barcelona:
↪ ter Stegen – Alba – Lenglet – Piqué – Semedo – de Jong – Busquets – Rakitic – Griezmann – Messi – Suárez

Real Madrid – statistics & current form
Real Madrid also felt much better at home this season than in the distance. If the Blancos in the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu took 20 out of 24 possible points and remained unbeaten at home so far, it was only four wins from eight games away.
In this context, the squad of Zinedine Zidane has a very strong value in the balance: In the eight away games in La Liga so far, there have been only six goals conceded for the Spanish record champions.
The defensive is the showpiece this season anyway, which is why the Merengues have only lost a single game in the highest Spanish division. The team owed its current life insurance policy to the fact that there was no second loss at the weekend.
We’re talking about Karim Benzema. The Frenchman, who once fell out of favor two years ago and would have been nearly chased off the field, equalized at Valencia CF in the fifth minute of stoppage time to make it 1-1. It was his twelfth league goal.
Judging by the fact that newcomers such as Luka Jovic and Rodrygo have not yet really shown much of a goal threat, while Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vázquez are all injured, practically everything depends on Karim Benzema.
Perhaps that is why bookmakers’ odds against Barcelona against Real Madrid are clearly moving towards the home side, as the Catalan backing team should accordingly concentrate on the French.
After all, the Merengues did not leave much to burn after a slight start to the season, during which Zinédine Zidane was even shortly before the end. Four wins in a row were followed by a draw for the first time – just like the Catalans, too.
Real has recently scored 17 out of 21 possible points from their last seven league games. A good yield, which does not count much, however, if the distance to the top of the table increases again due to a lost Clásico …
Best scorers in the league:
🏆 Karim Benzema (12 goals)
🏆 Sergio Ramos (3 goals)
Probable lineup of Real Madrid:
↪ Courtois – Mendy – Ramos – Varane – Carvajal – Casemiro – Kroos – Valverde – Júnior – Rodrygo – Benzema

Barcelona vs Real Madrid Direct comparison
Head to head: 96-51-95
What makes “El Clásico” such an impressive match are not the 59 championships, 49 cup wins and 18 overall Champions League wins, which both teams add up to. Rather, it is the fact that the Clásico is so much at eye level. So far, there have been 96 Blaugrana victories compared to 95 Merengues victories.
Last season, the duel was twice in the hands of the Catalans, who initially beat their arch-rivals 5-1 in the first leg at Camp Nou, before winning the return leg at the Santiago de Bernabéu stadium 1-0 on March 2, 2019 , The Blancos have been waiting for another win against Barca for six league games.
Barcelona vs Real Madrid Betting Predictions and Odds
To make a prediction of the classic 3-way system at Barcelona against Real Madrid is not exactly easy. Overall, we already believe that the Catalans are going into the match as favorites due to their sensational home record.
However, the bookmakers admit this favorite role in the odds structure, which is why there is no real value in the tip on home win.
After all, the defensive of the Blaugrana is vulnerable and remarkably often caused individual goals with individual mistakes, while the Merengues are doing very well overall. A lot can happen in this Clásico.
