The first El Clasico of the season is scheduled to take place at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, 21 November at 17:15 GMT and everything suggests that this will be one of the most heavily bet events this year.
Having slipped from the top of the standings after the 3-2 loss to Sevilla, Real Madrid are 6/4 to get one over their rivals and return to the La Liga summit, whilst Messi-less Barcelona can be backed at 7/4 shot.
The Argentine superstar has an outside chance of making the game, but even without him, we are likely to see another high-scoring match, so bear in mind that Real to win & both teams to score is 3/1, while Barca & both teams to score is 10/3.
If you are looking to watch the match live, you will be glad to hear that bet365 customers with funded accounts have free access to Real Madrid vs Barcelona live stream*, so now is the right time to register with bet365 if you haven’t done so already.
