Real Madrid CF - FC Barcelona betting tip & odds comparison 20.03.2022

Betting Tip for matchday 29 of the 2021/2022 Primera División between Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona. The game will be played at Santiago Bernabéu (Madrid, Spain) on 20.03.2022 at 21:00.

The latest instalment of El Clasico takes centre-stage in La Liga this weekend as leaders Real Madrid welcome their erstwhile rivals Barcelona to the Bernabeu this Sunday evening.

Real Madrid have opened up a 10 point cushion ahead of 2nd placed Sevilla, while third-placed Barcelona are a further 5 points behind.

Both teams have been in great form coming into this match so we can expect some fireworks here. Our La Liga predictions will turn the spotlight on Betway and Betwinner betting markets and prices.

REAL MADRID

Real Madrid have been in sublime form all season. Any fears of a choke job following a slight dip in form a few weeks ago were quickly flushed down with a run of 4 straight wins in the domestic league that has seen them open up a 10 point advantage over 2nd placed Sevilla. The title could very well be done and dusted as it is difficult to see them drop the ball at this juncture.

They are also very much alive in Europe. A terrific 3-1 comeback win over highly fancied PSG earned them a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against Chelsea, with the first leg on April 6 in London and the return leg on April 12 in the Spanish capital.

Ancelotti has already had the better of Barcelona on two occasions this season and he will be looking to continue this as they continue their title push.

BARCELONA

Barcelona’s slow start to the season had them dithering in mid-table mediocrity for long stretches. The appointment of Xavi as coach last November came with some optimism of a return to their former glory days. Although they did not really get immediate dividends, there now appears to be a turnaround in their fortunes as they have gone on an unbeaten run in the league since December.

This run has seen them climb up steadily from 9th on the log to 3rd place. They have looked particularly impressive in recent weeks, winning their last four on the trot while scoring an incredible 14 goals in that run, including a 4-0 rout of Osasuna last time out.

The Catalan giants are also thorough to the quarterfinals of the Europa League where they will face off with German side Eintracht Frankfurt. For all the challenges they have had this season, winning this trophy and maintaining a top 3 finish in La Liga will certainly go down as a successful season as they look to bolster the squad in the summer.

REAL MADRID VS BARCELONA PREDICTIONS

This match doesn’t quite carry the aura of the Classicos from previous seasons which would ideally have direct implications on the title race. Having said that, we still expect a competitive game here as the rivalry between these two sides runs deep. Both teams come into this match on the back of impressive runs and will both be looking to keep it going. As such we expect a physical encounter that could lead to a number of bookings either way. Betwinner offers Over 4.5 Bookings @1.52 and we are going with that for our initial betting prediction today.

Madrid are yet to lose at home this season and have been quite solid defensively in the capital with just a goal conceded in the last three home games. We expect a close game here but we fancy Real to keep their unbeaten streak alive. We are therefore picking them on a combo bet of double chance Madrid/Draw and Under 3.5 Goals @ 2.18 available on the Betway app.

Speaking of combo, Betbonanza have an interesting combo offer for this clash. Place a bet on the El Classico a minimum stake of ₦1,000 alongside any other sports selection of your choice with a total odds of 5.0 or higher and get Freebet for the FIFA World cup Africa qualifying series (Ghana Vs Nigeria and Egypt Vs Senegal).
