Barcelona and Real Madrid will face each other in La Liga this weekend. The match will take place at Camp Nou and is scheduled to kick off at 3:15pm UK time on Sunday.

Barcelona

Barcelona are not having a great season in La Liga and manager Ronald Koeman is under pressure. The Blaugrana are seventh in the La Liga table at the moment with 15 points from eight games, five points behind leaders Real Sociedad, who have played nine games.

The former Spanish and European giants are still much in the La Liga title race, but their performances need to be better. A 2-0 defeat to defending La Liga champions Atletico Madrid earlier this month showed how much work they still have to do.

Team News:

Sergio Aguero made his debut for Barcelona against Valencia this past weekend and is likely to start against Madrid.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid are doing well at the moment, although manager Carlo Ancelotti will want his players to do better. Los Blancos are currently second in the La Liga table with 17 points from eight matches, three points behind leaders Real Sociedad, who have played nine matches.

The former Spanish and European giants had their match against Athletic Bilbao in La Liga this past weekend postponed due to lack of players. Madrid had lost 2-1 to Espanyol earlier this month.

Team News:

Eden Hazard is a doubt for the match.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Barcelona and Real Madrid are in Champions League action in midweek.
  • Barcelona have scored 14 goals in 8 La Liga matches.
  • Barcelona have conceded 8 goals in 8 La Liga matches.
  • Real Madrid have scored 22 goals in 8 La Liga matches.
  • Real Madrid have conceded 10 goals in 8 La Liga matches.

Conclusion

It is never an easy call when Barcelona and Madrid face each other. El Clasico is arguably the biggest game on the planet, and much will depend on how the players do on the day itself. Madrid are in better form, and it is very likely that they will eke out a win.

Prediction: Real Madrid to win 2-1

Best Odds: 8/1
