Real Madrid vs. Barcelona Preview

Real Madrid

After demolishing Liverpool at Anfield, 2-5, Los Blancos had an exhausting local derby against Atletico Madrid, which took a lot of energy from Ancelotti’s crew. Though, if they want to win trophies and preserve the status of the best team in Europe, that’s something they need to overcome fast. 

Real had five wins in a row before this weekend, in each one scoring at least two goals, in four of them four hits or more. As said, their performance in England was more than impressive, and the way they dismantled Liverpool following an early deficit was astonishing. 

Unlike before, this team plays highly efficient football, without too many calculations, going straight for the rival’s goal. The mentality and stability are at the highest possible level, which allows Los Blancos to break its rivals easily. 

Barcelona

Xavi and the boys suffered the first defeat on the road after 11 consecutive victories, which was in Manchester against United. This failure cost them the Europa League competition, as Blaugrana suffered elimination.

An 18-game defeatless streak was interrupted, and we will see how Barca’s players cope with this and whether they have enough power to smoothly get over this problem.

When Barca plays on the road, we frequently see plenty of goals, that is, over 2.5. Also, the five-time European champs know to keep a clean sheet because of their slow-paced style of play, once they take the ball and kill the tempo.

Real Madrid and Barcelona Head to Head

These teams have met twice since the start of the campaign. The first meeting was in mid-October, when Real dismantled Barca at home, 3-1. The second in the Super Cup finals in Arabia was when Barcelona got even with the big rivals, defeating them with the same result, 3-1.

Real Madrid versus Barcelona Prediction

The game will be cautious, without too much risk. Even though everyone wants to win El Clasico, this is only the first half of the semifinals, and that’s why we expect to see a lower efficiency, that is, under 2.5 goals. 

Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
