La Liga

Matchweek 14


Bet: Both Teams to Score an Total Goals over 2,5

According to the betting experts Barcelona are not in their sharpest form now. The Blaugrana sit on the second place in La Liga standings with 6 points deficit from Real Madrid. The last month happened to be unexpectedly difficult for Luis Enrique’s side. They got only 2 victories out of 6 fixtures in all competitions. The last 2 Primera games against Malaga and Real Sociedad ended with the draws (0-0 and 1-1 respectively). However, as it was predicted by sports betting markets, Barca have secured the first position in their Champions League group even before playing the last game.

Real Madrid are far from being irreproachable this season, though they remain unbeaten in all competitions. Despite having a series of 3 draws in a row in Primera, los Blancos managed to pick themselves up. The vetting experts note that they are now on a 6-match winning streak. By the way, Zidane’s side is also undefeated in their last 25 La Liga matches. At this moment Real sit atop La Liga table with 33 points. Nevertheless, due to a surprise 3-3 draw with Legia Madrid are on the 2 spot in their Champions League group, but the betting experts think los Blancos are able to overcome Dortmund and finish on the top.

While choosing a bet you should take into consideration the fact that this fixture will be extremely important from the point of view of the championship race. If Madrid wins here they’ll have 9 points of advantage after the half of the season and that’s really a lot. It should be mentioned that Zidane is forced to play without injured Bale, Kroos and Morata while Enrique can’t use Alba and Mathieu. Although the betting companies assume Madrid to an underdog in the upcoming game, los Blancos have already beaten Barca at Camp Nou under Zidane’s direction.

The bookmakers give their preference to the host: Barcelona – 1,80, Draw – 4,10, Real Madrid – 4,00. Since both teams’ defense isn’t the tightest by any stretch of imagination and the last 10 head-to-head meetings at Camp Nou ended with the total goals over 2,5 you can bet either on “Both Teams to Score” (1,42) or on the “Total Goals over 3” (1,66). The bet “Both Teams to Score an Total Goals over 2,5” (1,63) is also worth you attention. Besides, the draw seems to be a good option with the price of 4,50. As Barcelona have a home field advantage you may try “Barcelona or Draw and Total Goals over 2,5” (1,90).
