With a three point lead going into their El Clasico against fierce rivals Barcelona, Real Madrid have a glorious opportunity to put themselves in pole position of winning Liga BBVA. Bet 365 are giving odds of 1/4 for the Spanish giants to win the title as a result of their current dominance.
Victory against the Catalan side tonight would see them open up a six-point gap with nine games still to play. With Barca facing Atletico Madrid at the end of the season, Real Madrid will consider their run-in far more favourable in which to win their first league title under new manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Madrid are unbeaten in their last 18 games this season, amassing an impressive 48 points from a possible 54. Their home form is formidable, with just three points dropped all campaign. Barcelona, on the other hand, have poor away form currently – with Martino’s men having won just twice on their travels in their last seven.
The formbook suggests Real Madrid should see past their rivals tonight, and with the possibility to go six points clear with the season coming to a close, it should see Los Blancos seal the title with a vital victory.
