Real Madrid vs Barcelona Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Real Madrid head into the last El Clasico of 2017 as the world champions after the success in the Club World Cup. Zinedine Zidane’s team lifted their third Club World Cup title by beating Brazilian outfit Gremio in the final. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game in the 53rd minute to hand this victory. Barcelona had a comfortable 4-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna at the Camp Nou. Luis Suarez and Paulinho scored in either half to hand Barcelona a comfortable win, while Messi had struck the woodwork and also had a penalty saved in the game. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Barcelona have a good record at the Santiago Bernabeu in recent seasons after managing three wins in the last five competitive visits. Madrid have been able to get just one league victory in this period, but Barcelona’s recent away form has not been great with three draws in the last five matches across all competitions. Madrid may have come away from the home wobbles, but Barcelona would want to preserve their 11-point advantage over Madrid more than increasing this advantage. This match has the potential to end up as a draw.

Even with a lot of concerns surrounding the team, Barcelona have kept four clean sheets in the last five away matches. The Catalan outfit have netted a remarkable 12 goals in the last five visits to this ground. Keeping a clean sheet against a Barcelona team with the highest number of goals in the La Liga this season will be difficult, but I see value in backing Barcelona to score over 1.5 goals.

Real Madrid Preview

Real Madrid have had a successful trip to the Middle East as the team managed a victory in the Club World Cup. Disappointment in this match would have been catastrophic for Madrid’s fragile confidence this season. Even as the season is about to head into the winter break, Real Madrid are still struggling for a push into the real title challenging position. The club are fourth in the table with a whopping 11 points separating them from Barcelona. The primary issues for Real Madrid have been centred on the lack of goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, although this has changed in recent weeks. Ronaldo (4) is now level with Isco and Marco Asensio as the Real Madrid top scorers in the La Liga.

Real Madrid Team News

Luca Zidane (shoulder) is the only injury concern for Zinedine Zidane coming into the game.

Barcelona Preview

Barcelona have seen their lead over the chasing pack cut down in recent weeks, but the team has been able to quickly return to form with wins over the likes of Villarreal and Deportivo La Coruna. There are still concerns about the team’s ability to finish off opponents with a limited number of chances, as Lionel Messi continues to be unlucky in front of goal. Despite the perceived goal scoring struggles, Barcelona have still managed more goals (14) than any other outfit in the last six league matches. The club share the joint best defensive record – conceding seven goals – with Atletico Madrid. Despite his goal scoring struggles, Messi still leads the La Liga goalscoring charts with 14 goals.

Barcelona Team News

Gerard Deulofeu (knee), Samuel Umtiti (hamstring), and Francisco Alcacer (muscle) are the players unavailable for Barcelona.
