Barcelona welcome Real Madrid to another derby between the long-time rivals this coming Sunday at Spotify Camp Nou. Who gets the chance to mock the other until they met again?

Sitting top of the table, Barcelona have claimed 65 points after 25 rounds, while Real Madrid have amassed 56 points and presently rank as number two in the La Liga.

Clearly Real Madrid need a victory against league leaders Barcelona to reduce the current difference in the standings, but surely the home side want a say in that. In current form their confidence should be high, making them even tougher to beat.

Barcelona only average a modest 1.3 goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored 13 goals. They also conceded two for an average of 0.2 per game. They kept their opponents from scoring eight times.

Real Madrid are currently decent goalscorers, as they managed a bearable 15 goals in the past ten outings for an average of 1.5 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of five goals, and while Real Madrid claimed six clean sheets, they conceded an average of 0.5 goals per match.

Barcelona lost to 3-1 Real Madrid in their last encounter. This served as payback for the 4-0 win, which Barcelona dished out the match before that.

Barcelona vs Real Madrid Prediction

Barcelona Form

Barcelona swept all aside in their last three matches and started off by winning 0-1 against Real Madrid. They went on to defeat Valencia 1-0 and made it three on the spin against Athletic Bilbao in a 0-1 victory. In their last six La Liga home matches, Barcelona racked up five strong wins, while they've drawn once. They lost none while scoring ten and conceding one goals.

Real Madrid Form

Real Madrid look well suited to take on any opponent with seven points to show off from three matches. They started off drawing 0-0 with Real Betis, before downing first Espanyol by 3-1, then Liverpool in a 1-0 win. Real Madrid managed a decent return of three wins in their last six La Liga away matches, in which they scored seven while also conceding three times. They also experienced one draw and two defeats.

Are Barcelona good enough currently to justify the prices with the bookies, when they face Real Madrid at Spotify Camp Nou? It could be tight, but considering form and match history, we believe the home side represents the best betting option.

Barcelona won nine matches, scored 20 goals and conceded six in their last 11 games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. This earned them 28 points. Real Madrid earned six wins and 22 points in their last 11 games against teams from the top half of the La Liga table. They scored 20 and conceded 12 goals in these. Barcelona are looking at a record of 21 wins, two draws and two defeats in the La Liga this season. Real Madrid show off 17 wins, five draws and three defeats in the La Liga.
