Barcelona – Real Madrid, Copa del Rey Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BARCELONA - REAL MADRID
Barcelona had a huge struggles with Valencia in the last round of the La Liga, but this was a very valuable point for the Catalans, because the following day Atletico lost and now their lead is 6 points. Barca showed something great in the last two rounds of Copa del Rey playing very poorly and losing their first games against Levante and Sevilla, respectively, but then Valverde went out with his best at Camp Nou and the Catalans destroyed their opponents.
It is now clear that Real Madrid has returned in their best form, which is great news, as this happens just in time for the Champions League matches, as well as the important semifinal with Barcelona now. The La Liga title is still far for them, but let’s not forget that Barca will have to play with Atletico, as well as with Real Madrid, later in the season, so everything is possible. Real beat Girona with 3-1 last week in the visit for Copa del Rey, and a few days ago they defeated Alaves in the league with 3-0.
Barca vs Real is a match that can always offer us many goals. No matter the players on the pitch, and even with the fact that Ronaldo is no longer in Real Madrid, and Messi is likely to be injured. The offensive approach of both teams, their class in attack, and add that the defensive players often rush into attack, which leaves spaces, are the reasons for the goals between Barcelona and Real M. In 25 of the last 28 games between the two colossus there was BTTS. Barca scored a goal in the last 31 home games and Real has scored at least 2 in 5 of the last 6 away games. Prediction – BTTS at 1.52
