Barcelona vs Real Madrid by Rahul
Barcelona have also been dented early on with the sale of Neymar and will likely start either Deulofeu or Rafinha in his place to start of this game. With Messi and Suarez part of the big 2 still on the Barcelona books; they will rely a lot on them in order to put on a good show. Barcelona don't look like they have strengthened enough in order to say that they might be a threat to the Real Madrid dominance from last season. They have signed up Semedo to sure up the right full back spot which was a major weakness last campaign. Absences to the likes of Vermaelen, Andre Gomes, Arda Turan and Munir means that Barcelona are playing with thin squad ahead of this game, with most players likely to play the full 90 minutes ahead of the return leg in 3 days time.
Both teams have struggled defensively for most of last season and so far in the pre-season as well, and that is why I am backing Over 2.5 Goals and both teams to score in what should be an open El Clasico much like it has been in 10 out of the last 12 encounters between these 2 sides.
