Barcelona find themselves behind Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the league. They suffered a dip in form after the defeat against Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid but they bounced back with a win over Manchester City in the Champions League and the 7-0 thrashing to Osasuna in their last league game. They possess the best attack and second best defence in the league. Defender Puyol (5/1) and forward Cuenca (0/0) are expected to be out but this does not matter because these players have not really played this season. Virtually, they will be at full strength for this game.
This is the biggest match in Spain and there is a great rivalry prevailing between these teams. Barcelona are underdogs in this match mainly because of their setbacks against Real Sociedad and Valladolid as well as their inconsistency in away matches. From my personal observation, Barcelona actually suffer against teams which play ultra defensively against them and these matches cannot be used as a reference to judge Barcelona in the El Classico.
This is a completely different game and Real Madrid are playing attacking football and Barcelona perform very well against teams which attack them as they showed against Manchester City in the Champions League. The problem of Barcelona is against defensive teams and not the other way round. They have already defeated Real Madrid in Camp Nou this season but their opponents have improved from that defeat. Nevertheless, they still have the potential to defeat Real Madrid.
This is the last chance for Barcelona to get back in the title race. A defeat here would mean that their fight for the title would be virtually over. This match can go either way because Barcelona still possess some of the best players in the world like forward Messi (21/18) and playmakers Iniesta (25/2) and Xavi (22/3) who can make the difference in any game at anytime. From a betting standpoint, I prefer to back the team with the better odds on asian handicap because for me both teams have equal chance of winning.
Barcelona Asian Handicap 0. In case of draw, the stake will be refunded.
