Real Madrid – Barcelona, Copa del Rey Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR REAL MADRID - BARCELONA
The shape of Real Madrid dropped slightly in the last few weeks, while Barca played much stronger so the forces are flattened. Real M goal gives them an advantage only if the match ends 0-0, which is excluded between these two. Real took an important victory against Levante in the last round, but could not shorten the distance to Barca. Interesting is the situation with Gareth Bale, who is increasingly starting to withdraw from his teammates and this affects the team in some way for sure.
Barcelona made a sensational comeback against Sevilla and won 4-2 in a very interesting game with quite a drama on Ramos Sanchez Pizjuan. The star of the game was, as always, Leo Messi, who had a hat trick. Messi is in great shape and Barca will be very motivated for this match. They also want to take the cup for the fifth consecutive time, which means they will be the only team ever to achieve such a record in Spain.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona is synonymous of goals, spectacles, class football and many emotions. There is nothing else to expect from two of the world’s most attacking and top-class teams. In this match there is no logic to see closed football, as it is a rematch, and Real Madrid is not the strongest in defense. 8 of the last 9 matches of Real M finished with BTTS + over 2.5 goals. Because of the slightly better defense of Barca, the odds are not so low and worth it. Prediction – BTTS at 1.52. Alternative option – BTTS + over 2.5 goals at 1.81.
- 26 of the last 29 matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona have gone through a goal in both nets
