Can Real Madrid stop Barcelona from scoring again in the Clasico
Barcelona and Real Madrid were both left stunned at the weekend as each suffered surprise defeats in La Liga.
Barcelona made the trip to Getafe with Phillippe Coutinho on the bench and played Griezmann out of position. Mata second-half penalty proved enough for the hosts to claim a rare win against Barcelona. All the questions for Koeman after the game focused on why he played Griezmann out of position when it is clearly not working for either the player or the team.
Real Madrid played a near full-strength starting eleven at home to newly-promoted Cadiz, so really had no excuses for losing the game. An early goal from Lozano took Cadiz level on points with Real and earned them their first-ever league win against the Spanish giants. Real Madrid now sit 3rd in the table, 3pts and six places above Barcelona.
With four wins, one draw and one defeat from their last six matches in all competitions, Barcelona are the form favourites. Real Madrid have three, lost two and drawn one of their last six in league and cup but still remain above Barcelona in the La Liga table. Barcelona could only manage a 1-1 draw in their last home game against Sevilla and are bound to be lacking in confidence following that shock defeat at Getafe. Real Madrid have picked up points in each of their three away games this season and took 4pts from their games against Barcelona last season.
Head to Head Record
The last six meetings between these two old rivals have produced three wins, two draws and just one defeat for Barcelona. However, last season Real secured a 2-0 win at home to the Catalonians and played a goalless draw at the Camp Nou. Barcelona's last two home games against Real Madrid have ended in draws, last season in the league and the season before in the Copa del Rey. The hosts have failed to score in the last two El Clasicos and Real Madrid have kept clean sheets in three of their last five outings.
Barcelona look set to be without Jordi Alba, Marc-Andre ter Steden, and Samuel Umtiti due to injury. However, the Spanish full-back could face a late fitness test ahead of El Clasico. Real Madrid have injury concerns over Sergio Ramos, Martin Odegaard, Alvaro Odriozola, Eden Hazard, Daniel Carvajal, and Mariano Diaz. The captain could face a late fitness test though and would be a much-welcomed addition ahead of the trip to the Camp Nou.
Three betting predictions for Barcelona vs Real Madrid

- Match Result: Draw @ 13/5
- Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals @ 11/10
- Both Teams to Score: BTTS – No @ 6/5
Real Madrid haven't lost on the road this season, securing two wins and a draw on their travels. The visitors went unbeaten against Barcelona last season, picking up a win at home and a draw at the Camp Nou. The last two meetings between these two sides at the home of Barcelona have ended in stalemates. The hosts drew their last home game against Sevilla 1-1 and are without a win in their last two league games. Neither side have looked at their best so far this season and both could be labelled as inconsistent. Three of the last five encounters between these two clubs have been tight and tense, with no more than 1-goal separating the pair.
Under 2.5 Goals
Four of the last five El Clasicos have produced under 2.5 goals, including the last two times Barcelona have played host to Real Madrid. The last four El Clasicos have failed to see both teams score, with Barcelona failing to score in the last two and Real Madrid failing to find the back of the net in the two games prior. Three of Barcelona's last five matches in all competitions have produced under 2.5 goals, as have four of Real's last five outings. Both teams failed to score at the weekend and if the recent El Clasicos are anything to go by, there won't be many goals in Saturday's clash.
BTTS – No
Only two of the last six El Clasicos have seen both teams score, with the last four encounters either seeing one or no team find the back of the net. Barcelona have failed to score in their last two games against Real Madrid, both of which were in La Liga last season. Both clubs failed to score in last weekend's games, which they were expected to win with relative ease. Barcelona and Real Madrid have both kept three clean sheets in their last five outings in all competitions.
