Must Win Game For Real Madrid

It has been a tough start to the season for Real Madrid and they go into this game with their title hopes all but gone. Los Blancos started the campaign very slowly, and although their form has picked up of late, they are currently 11 points behind their table topping opponents.

Real have picked up of late though with no defeats in five La Liga matches, and as a result, one or two will be interested in them to win this game at 15/13 with Ladbrokes.

Barcelona started the season under a cloud but their form has been sensational domestically with no defeats in La Liga, and many believe they already have the title wrapped up. A win at their home of their biggest rivals would almost seal the deal and the Catalans are an 11/5 shot with Betfair to claim the away triumph.

Expect Goals At The Bernabeu

The one thing this fixture tends to guarantee is goals, and punters will be studying the score markets as a result.

A stunning 22 of the last 24 matches between these two famous teams has ended with both teams scoring, and we are expecting more of the same. As always, Ronaldo and Messi will attract the lion share of the attention, and from a betting point of view, it is the former who appeals.

The Portuguese star has only scored four goals in La Liga this term which is very poor by his standards but his form is improving with eight goals in his last seven matches in all competitions, and 31/10 with Bet Victor looks a fair punt about him scoring first.

Conclsusion

Barcelona have been sensational this term and deservedly look in the front seat in the title race, but Real are a wounded animal and that makes them interesting. They are fresh off of a World Club title last weekend which should boost their confidence, and in front of their own fans, they will want to put on a show to send them into the festive period happy.

Barcelona are top of the table but are far from invincible with Luis Suarez still struggling for form and Dembele still out injured, and any time you can get odds against for a Real home win, you have to take it.
